This recipe for Caramel Rum Sauce would be great on ice cream. It's also the perfect glaze for Brown Sugar Pound Cake or drizzled on top of a bundt cake. 

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup cream (whipping or heavy)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar (dark brown)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup (light)
  • 3 tablespoons rum (dark)

How to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in heavy saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking occasionally.
  3. Cover and continue to boil for 1 minute to wash sugars from ​the side of the pan. Uncover and boil for 3 to 4 more minutes without stirring.
  4. Cool slightly before drizzling* over cake or ice cream.

Recipe Tips:

  • Not only did I drizzle the sauce over my rose-shaped Brown Sugar Pound Cake, but I brushed it over the sides for even coverage. Since my cake was in two pans, I put 1-cup of sauce in a resealable container in the refrigerator to use later on the loaf cake. To serve this cake, I scooped out some sauce on a slice of the cake. I then microwaved the piece for about 15 seconds. Wonderful!
