Vegan Salted Caramel Sauce

Did you know that you could make sauces in a bread maker? No? Me neither!  I never really paid much attention to my bread maker other than to throw in some bread mix but there is also a cycle on there where you can make jam.  Since going dairy free there are plenty of things that I’ve managed to get alternatives for such as ice cream, chocolate, yogurt, cheese, etc but have never found a Vegan Salted Caramel Sauce.  Another thing I discovered was that not all sugars are vegan! Now I knew that honey wasn’t vegan but never realised that some brands refine sugar further by using bone char to filter it.  See, every day is a school day! In the UK, Tate & Lyle, Billington and Silver Spoon granulated sugar are vegan but not all of their sugars are.

This Vegan Salted Caramel Sauce recipe is so easy to make as it only requires 4 ingredients which are then placed into a bread maker.  No sugar thermometers or checking that the sugar is going to burn is required, that’s how easy it is to make.  You just put the ingredients into the bread maker and leave it to cook.  If you don’t like your caramel sauce salted then leave out the salt.  As you aren’t heating up the sugar then you aren’t going to get the dark amber colour familiar with caramel sauces but it will be a lighter golden colour.

So what can you do with the sauce once it’s made? Well you can use it to:

  • Drizzle over popcorn or ice cream
  • Dip apple slices into
  • Use with frosting on your cupcakes
  • Make vegan milkshakes

      There should be a jam cycle that you can use but I’ve heard you can make pasta sauces in there too, so that’s something else you could try. It’s good that you don’t have to stand over and watch it, you can just add in your ingredients and leave it. It took 1hr 20mins to cook so not too long.

      Thank you! 😊 It is really tasty. If you eat a lot of bread, cakes, pizzas etc then its worth getting one otherwise it will just end up being one of those gadgets that sit in the back of your cupboard collecting dust 😃

    I have a bread maker and never knew you could make anything other than bread . I can’t wait to try your very simple 4 ingredient recipe. I am very curious about how it tastes over popcorn.

      I think it might depend on your bread maker, as the one I have has a few other cycles so I used the jam cycle. Only took 1hr 20 mins to make. Over popcorn it just tastes like a sauce over it to flavour plain popcorn but you could use it with ice cream if popcorn isn’t your thing 😊

      Thank you 😊! You could make it in a pan but I think you will need to use a thermometer to check the temperature in case you burn the sugar as well as stand over it. If you have the time to do it then it’s probably worth trying xx
