Vegan Caramel Filling



  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 1 cup vegan butter


  • Combine the sugar, lemon juice, corn syrup, and water in a heavy metal saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • Do not stir. Brush down the sides of the pot with water to prevent sugar crystals from forming until the sugar has completely melted and the mixture is clear.
  • Stir slowly. The color will begin to darken. Once a dark amber color is reached, add the coconut cream and mix well. (The mixture will bubble, so be careful.)
  • Stir in the vegan butter and cook until thick (about 185ºF). Remove from heat and let the caramel cool completely.

Makes 2 1/2 cups
