    UnknownChef86's Note:

    If you would like a sauce that is very soft and almost pourable at room temperature, double the amount of cream to 1 cup. Otherwise this caramel sauce will have to be warmed to be pourable. Note from UnknownChef86: This is a recipe I adopted in 2006.

    1. 1
      In a heavy 4-quart or larger saucepan, preferably nonstick, stir together the sugar, corn syrup, and water until the sugar is completely moistened.
    2. 2
      Heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves and the syrup is bubbling, about 5 minute.
    3. 3
      Stop stirring and allow it to boil undisturbed until it turns a deep amber .
    4. 4
      Immediately remove it from the heat and slowly and carefully pour the hot cream into the caramel.
    5. 5
      It will bubble up furiously.
    6. 6
      Using a high-temperature, heat-resistant rubber spatula, or a wooden spoon, stir the mixture until smooth, scraping up the thicker part that settles on the bottom.
    7. 7
      If any lumps develop, return the pan to the heat and stir until they dissolve.
    8. 8
      Stir in the butter.
    9. 9
      The mixture will be streaky but will become uniform after cooking slightly and stirring.
    10. 10
      Allow to cool for 3 minutes and then gently stir in the vanilla extract.

      Wow!!!! This is as good a caramel sauce as I've ever tasted. It's extremely fast and easy to make but be careful of the color of the syrup. The first batch I made I allowed the syrup to turn dark amber then removed it from the heat. It continued to cook and ended up burning so the second batch I made I took it off the heat when it turned a light amber color. After I added the cream it continued to darken but turned out perfect when all was said and done. Thanks for sharing this one. It's definately a keeper!!!

      Scrumptious! I didn't have any cream on the day I intended to make this (a Sunday) and supermarkets aren't open here, so I took a risk and used full-fat evaporated milk. It turned out just great and was a great sauce over Mean's Apple Cake.

      This is the the real deal. The only add was 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt.
