packed brown sugar
light corn syrup
The recipe "as is" is good, but you notice sweet first and taste second (not ideal). I added another Tbsp of butter (total of 1/4 cup) and a dash more of milk, and 1/2 tsp of vanilla - the flavor was so much better and more rich (less pure sugar taste). We really enjoyed this recipe with those tweaks.
On another note, DON'T let it boil - the texture becomes grainy (I unwisely thought I could do dishes AND stir occasionaly... but out of sight, out of mind. The flavor was still great, though, and we'll make this again)
Thank for the recipe :)
Not as buttery tasting as I was looking for, the flavor got lost on vanilla icecream. Even tried adding another tb. butter. Update: Adding a touch of butter flavoring helps with this recipe. I used a combo of brown sugar, white sugar and syrup to make a better color and then followed the recipe as usual. Adding a drop or two of yellow food coloring makes it prettier if you do this. But that's up to you. Remember brown sugar muddles the color but adds richer flavor. However, just adding the butter flavoring helped the most.
Very good, but follow instructions exactly! If you let it boil, it gets gritty. Also, I added a little vanilla, but it tasted better without it - does not need vanilla, nor salt! An extra tablespoon of butter does not hurt, however. I made it a second time using margarine, and that worked well, too.
Very easy and wonderful. Cook a little while on low until sugar disolves for best results.
I used honey for the corn syrup, just because we didn't have any. My kids loved it on vanilla icecream. My son insists we keep this recipe forever.
This is a very thin sauce. I cut back the milk to 1/8 cup and did not boil. Paired it with the Super Duper Easy Apple Cake recipe.
Yum! Just beware: if you are looking for a sauce that is thick and syrupy, this isn't it. It's quite liquidy.
Yummy & easy! For a less sweet version I used 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup milk and add 2 tsp cornstarch (to make it thicker).
