Follow these easy instructions to create delectable goat milk caramel sauce at home. This recipe requires only five easy ingredients. It’s perfect for cakes, cupcakes, ice cream, scones, apple pie, and more!


  1. Combine all ingredients in a non stick pot and warm over a medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture gets a foamy top.

  2. Turn down to simmer and continue cooking, stirring constantly. Mixture will turn from thin and milky white to a thick golden syrup after about 45-60 minutes. Keep cooking until the spatula leaves a gap in the cajeta that is open for about 1 second.

  3. Transfer cajeta to a glass jar and cool. Cajeta can be refrigerated for up to 3 months. Thin with milk if too thick once cooled.
