So many uses for a good sweet sauce like this one! Like it salted? Drizzle it over frosting like Kayti Did for several of her cupcakes and sprinkle on the sea salt! Go for it!
I decided to use Homemade Buttermilk Caramel sauce in my Caramel Pecan Banana Date bread recipe. This Caramel sauce over the top brings a simple banana bread recipe up to delicious dessert!
In the past, I rarely bought Caramel sauce from the store. It’s sat in my fridge forever. Until it finally got so crusty I threw it out. Thats because store bought is full of nasty ingredients I can’t pronounce.
The store bought sauce is almost certainly devoid of all nutrients, other than sugar. I can’t justify it for the calories it adds to my diet. It also has an off chemical taste, somewhat masked by all the sugar added into the store brands.
I gave up store brand processed bakery items years ago for the same reason. Also store bought ice cream. Those items VERY rarely make an appearance in my kitchen anymore. Way Too Dangerous for our health and waist lines!
Homemade with real wholesome ingredients is where it is at! Even for ‘junk food’!
This sauce is a great example of the improvement in the quality of our food. Making it myself with good quality ingredients gives us a much healthier diet! I’m enjoying making my own ice cream too! The Truly amazing thing is…homemade food with real ingredients, does NOT make me fat!
I’m pretty sure the reason is that homemade goodies do NOT have the additives that make us addicted to our food. The processed food industry does purposefully and with full FDA approval put horrid, addicting additives into our processed foods. I walked off that train years ago.
I hope you’ll follow me down the homemade track. For the health of your family; unchain your taste buds from the processed foods and make it yourself. You won’t be sorry!
Homemade Buttermilk Caramel Sauce Recipe:
One note about the buttermilk:
I encourage you to use real, natural buttermilk. Real buttery buttermilk made from Guernsey Cows is amazingly flavorful and so good for you.
Putting vinegar in your milk (like I used to do) is not even close to the excellent flavor a truly good buttermilk can give you! Same thing with the butter. Use real organic butter!
The only other thing:
Do NOT use a small pot for this recipe! It will boil up more than you think! A soup pot is a very good idea!
This is a very easy recipe. Just follow the directions and enjoy!
