Caramel Glaze

Caramel Glaze

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.  Add the brown sugar and corn syrup.  Cook, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes.  Remove from the heat, whisk in the salt, milk and vanilla, then the powdered sugar, whisking until smooth.  Dip the filled doughnuts into the glaze, then set on a wire rack to set the glaze for 15-20 minutes.

After the glaze cools, it will thicken more, so you can gently rewarm it on the stove to thin it out again.

Yields enough glaze for about 2 dozen doughnuts.
