Delectable Tuesday Blog Hop 6/28 - Homemade Caramel Sauce

Do you enjoy ice cream sundaes? Maybe with chocolate, caramel and whipped cream? (I shouldn't write this when I'm hungry....)

I almost always have chocolate sauce around, but caramel sauce is practically nonexistent and until recently I had no idea how to make it. I thought it'd be hard or that I wouldn't have the ingredients on hand. (Who keeps heavy cream on hand all the time?)

I stumbled upon this recipe and was instantly hooked. Here was a caramel sauce that I could make whenever I wanted! Now that summer is here, ice cream sundaes will be a frequent dessert. Of course there is also the holiday weekend coming up. Gotta make sundaes for that too.

What have you been making this week?

Homemade Caramel Sauce

1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
4 tablespoons flour
1 cup boiling water
dash salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons cream (evaporated milk can be substituted)
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix sugar with flour in saucepan; blend well. Add water and salt. Stir while cooking for 6 to 8 minutes. If too thick add a little more water. Remove from heat; stir in butter, cream, and vanilla.
