Spiced Pumpkin Caramel Sauce

Spiced Pumpkin Caramel Sauce

If you saw my Soft Baked Maple Pumpkin Granola Bars, you’ll know that I am on a mission to bring the love of pumpkin to the UK.

I am British born and bred, but I love pumpkin! Pumpkin everything. 

As I mentioned before though, it is not that popular here, or that readily available.

So then I thought, what can people not say no to? Caramel sauce. 

Move over salted caramel sauce; pumpkin caramel sauce is here for the winter!

This weeks #SundaySupper theme is Sauce It Up. Except I’m an idiot and wrote up the forum post to submit my entry, then didn’t click submit. So I won’t be included on the links this week and i’m gutted. I’d already made the caramel sauce though, so I though why not post it!

This sauce is spiced and warming. It’s quite a thick caramel, which is perfect dropped onto hot pancakes or waffles. If you would like to thin it out before serving, just add a little more cream to it.
