Bring the sugar and water to a boil, constantly stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.DairyFreeCaramelSauce2

Use a full fat canned coconut milk, and pour off any of the liquid in the can. You only want to use the thick cream in this recipe. Add the coconut milk to the pot as well as the remaining ingredients, and stir well until full incorporated. Continue to stir frequently so mixture does not burn.DairyFreeCaramelSauce3

Boil until the mixture is a dark amber color – but be careful, it can go from amber to burnt in less than a minute! DairyFreeCaramelSauce4

  1. We have a new tool you can use to customize the recipes you see on our site. Once you log in, go into the ‘My Account’ tab, then under ‘Do Something’, click on ‘My Preferences’. You can check off boxes for dairy free, casein free – or any ingredients (allergens) you don’t want in recipes. Then hit save. Now only recipes that we have identified with those labels will appear. That should help narrow down your recipe choices!

  2. Depending what brand of coconut milk you use there may be some liquid that separates out (lower quality brands of full fat coconut milk can still separate). Premium quality full fat coconut milk should be solid in the can, but if there is any liquid floating at the top just pour it off.

  3. I will sure try this recipe and I need a good gluten free yeast free bread recep to iv U know of one!! Thanks

  4. We don’t have a lot of yeast free bread recipes, but here is one you can try: Fluffy White Bread. Gluten free breads are so subjective – everyone has their own preference to taste and textures, what one person likes another may not. Swapping out one gluten free flour for another in a blend can completely change the taste and texture of the loaf. Again when you omit essential ingredients that help to leaven the bread to keep it from being too dense (like eggs or yeast), again it affects the taste and texture. Let me know how you like this recipe if you decide to give it a try!
