    Hey Sarah :) I've made this a bunch of times and it's super simple, kinda made it up but I'll try give you a recipe.Approx. 1 cup of sugar (I've used both brown and white - both are nice)1 can of coconut cream (use cream and water - it's fine)2 tsp vanilla extract A couple dashes of salt Put the sugar into a pot over medium heat until it's completely melted and turning golden (keep a close eye on it.)Once it's at that stage, add the coconut cream in, a small amount at a time as it froths up when you add it, lumps may form but this is absolutely fine, happens to me every time, they'll melt away. Once you have incorporated all the cream, add the vanilla and salt and continue to cook it for about 10 minutes or until it has thickened up and is a nice, rich golden colour.

If, for some reason it doesn't want to thicken up (this happened to me when I made this cake - think it might have been the coconut cream I used?) place the caramel into the fridge until it has a nice solid layer over it (about an hour or two - sorry didn't keep track of the time!), take it our and give it a mix with a hand held mixer to combine all the caramel and it will thicken right up. Hope this all works for you - sorry it's not perfect :) good luck and let me know if you like it!

    I've made this so many times! It's amazing with berries! I also made it recently for a dinner with my vegan friends and I topped it with coconut cream caramel and oh lawdy it was the best thing ever, everyone loved it so much.
