this is a scrumptious carmel sauce that i adapted from german pancake syrup. hope you enjoy!
3/4 C. sugar
1/3 C. milk
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/4 C. butter or margarine
1 Tbsp corn syrup (or maple syrup)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. add lime juice to milk, wait ~5 mins. milk will curdle.
2. in a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, milk mixture, butter, corn syrup, and baking soda. stir (almost) constantly. bring to a boil, and boil for 7 minutes. (time varies - for a thinner sauce, boil a shorter time; for a thicker sauce, boil longer. to get a nice, spreadable carmel, i keep stirring until the colour changes from amber to a deeper brown.)
3. remove from heat, stir in vanilla.4. cool slightly before consuming (it gets really hot). enjoy!
