5 Minute Dairy-Free Caramel Sauce that’s Rich and Buttery

1

This delicious caramel sauce literally takes minutes to make. The recipe was originally shared with us by a fantastic website called Allergycooks. They’ve sadly since closed, but this sweet dessert topping lives on. It was originally created to serve sundae-style with sliced bananas and dairy-free vanilla ice cream. But it’s also amazing with stone fruit, served fresh, roasted or grilled.

According to the recipe creator, Lyle’s Golden Syrup is the secret to a rich, buttery, and satisfying dairy-free caramel sauce. But in a pinch, you can swap in non-GMO corn syrup or even maple syrup.

The brown sugar gives it a light butterscotch-y taste. But a light squeeze of lemon juice adds to the depth of flavor, and lends complement to various fruit pairings. It also cuts out the need for adding salt.
