Servings 340 g


  • 200 g raw cane sugar
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 100 g vegan butter cut into cubes
  • 50 ml rice milk or other plant based milk
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  • Put the sugar and lemon juice into a heavy-bottomed pan and melt it over low heat; when it begins to melt, start stirring continuously to prevent burning;
  • When the sugar is melted completely, add in the vegan butter cubes and whisk together until you get a thick sauce;
  • Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the plant milk and sea salt; stir until they're well combined.


  1. The sauce will bubble and splatter rapidly when butter and milk are added; you might want to wear kitchen gloves.
  2. If the sauce separated after adding the butter, remove the pan from the heat and stir quickly until it comes back together.
