This recipe for Caramel Rum Sauce would be great on ice cream. It's also the perfect glaze for the Brown Sugar Pound Cake.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 16 minutes


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


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

Notes in the Margin:

*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!
