It is undoubtedly a perfect addition to a load of irresistible treats such as cake, cupcakes, pancakes, pudding and so much more. From using it as a topping, filling and flavoring agent in our dishes and desserts, there is no end to the ways you can use this rich, glossy, sweet and buttery sauce. Caramel sauce is whipped up by mixing caramelized sugar with cream, butter and a drizzle of milk. Let us show you how easy it is to make at home without any fuss. Here are about 4 tips and tricks to get the most delicious and fine-textured homemade caramel sauce.  

Melt the sugar & caramelize the sugar until it changes its color  

The first step that one needs to perform is melting the sugar and caramelizing it properly with care.  The process of melting the sugar and caramelization consists of slowly heating sugar in a pan by whisking it on a medium-high flame. As the sugar heats, the molecules break down and change both its color and flavor. Caramelize the sugar until it turns slightly brown in color.  

Use fresh whipped cream

Wondering why you need to add whipped cream into the mixture? Using whipped cream can make a great difference in the texture and flavors of your homemade caramel sauce. It makes the sauce creamier, glossy and flavorful. Sometimes the sauce becomes too thick, we can thin it by adding dollops of fresh cream. Remember that along with whipped cream, you need to also add butter and a drizzle of milk.  

Add a dash of lemon juice

You can add a dash of lemon juice with the rest of the ingredients to enhance the flavours. Adding lemon juice can also prevent the caramel sauce from hardening. If you are adding lemon juice, make sure you add in a very little quantity otherwise your sauce can develop a strong sour flavor.
