More About This Recipe
For the holidays or any time of year, cajeta Mexican caramel sauce made from goat's milk is a rich and decadent treat! Serve cajeta caramel sauce over pound cake, ice cream or anything to make a wonderful dessert.
It's time to bump up the holiday sprit and make the house smell sweet and delicious! This Cajeta Caramel Sauce is just the thing. Cajeta is a Mexican caramel sauce made of goat's milk, vanilla and cinnamon that is simmered on the stove until it thickens and caramelizes.
It is pure amazingness that could honestly just be eaten with a spoon! If that's not quite your thing, it can also be served over pound cake or spooned into jars for a great holiday gift. The sauce makes the house smell amazing for hours. Yes, Cajeta Caramel Sauce really needs to be on your “must make” list!
Make sure you use a large enough pot to make this sauce. Learn from me on this one – I used a pot that was too small and ended up with a huge mess. Use a big pot!
Now that you have your amazing, thick, sweet, caramel sauce, what should you do with it? My suggestion is to grab a box of Betty Crocker™ Cake Mix Pound and bake up a pound cake. It's so easy; you only need the box mix, two eggs and some milk! Then serve the pound cake drizzled with the sauce. It's an easy and amazing dessert!
Or, spoon the sauce into attractive 8-ounce jars. Use cheesecloth, ribbon and whatever you have on hand to decorate. People would love this as a homemade gift!
