A Caramel Sauce Disappointment
To begin with I wanted a caramel sauce to compliment my Caramel Brownie Mugcake. Previously I had been using Walden Farms Sugar-Free Caramel Sauce. Truth be told though, like so many of their products it is just ho hum. I would describe it as having a somewhat runny consistency and texture. The taste is at best satisfactory and somewhat artificial tasting, but with no other alternatives, it temporarily filled the void.
Inspiration From A Fellow Blogger
I developed this gourmet salted caramel sauce after a fellow blogger, Katrin Nuernberger who writes under the name Sugar Free Londoner published and posted her 2 ingredient version. Her caramel sauce is remarkably good and made using full fat, unsweetened coconut milk. I encourage you to give hers a try as well. It is truly a game changer that is so very easy to make.
The Ultimate Gourmet Caramel Sauce
Katrin’s post introduced me to a sugar free alternative brand named Sukrin. Their fiber syrup and brown sugar alternative are what make this recipe possible. Those two ingredients along with that idea first introduced by Katrin inspired me to make the ultimate gourmet caramel sauce.
The creamy thick texture and flavor of this sauce to me is what caramel sauce is all about. This is a caramel sauce that is all at once buttery, salty and perfectly sweet with hints of vanilla lurking in the background. Like Katrin’s version this caramel sauce is also one that is very easy to make and keep on hand in the refrigerator. You are going to love how outstandingly delicious it is with what ever you decide to pair it with. Make no mistake this sauce will deliver a flavor profile that just opens up and blooms in your mouth. When you try it I think you’ll agree that it’s a wonderful new addition for a low carb lifestyle. From my kitchen to yours, happy low carbing. Mike
