Homemade Caramel Sauce
So I was all set to share a delicious Apple Sweet Loaf with a crumb topping that I also drizzled with this delicious creamy Maple Caramel Sauce, but …
I realized that I hadn’t shared this Maple Caramel Sauce yet!
I did make an easy version of a Caramel Sauce made with Sweetened Condensed Milk, that I made for my daughter’s No Bake Skor Cheesecake with Caramel Drizzle.
It’s fast and easy, but if you are looking for a Delicious, Creamy Homemade Caramel Sauce than this is the one. And it’s not very difficult to make.
Just patience and time.
And don’t worry thinking that it is so thin once it is cooked. It will definitely lighten and thicken while it is cooling.

As you can see this is not a Salted Caramel Sauce, because I am not a lover of the stuff. I prefer my Caramel Sauce just that! Ok the addition of the maple syrup really brought it up a notch.
but salt? No thanks.
But if you do like that combination just stir in a teaspoon (more or less) of salt after adding the cream, then pour into the glass jar.
Caramel sauce is perfect on ice cream, or fresh berries or why not drizzle a bit on your pancakes or whipped cream Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving? Enjoy.
