The Kroft is a gastropub with several locations in Orange County and Los Angeles, specializing in poutine and sandwiches. We recently visited their location inside Anaheim Packing District twice because we enjoyed it so much. I still wish they allowed cameras inside Anaheim Packing District so I could take better photos, but other than that, I really love the space and all the restaurant offerings.

Country Fried Chicken Poutine

This homemade salted caramel sauce is easy to make and cheaper than buying it at the store. It’s ready in less than 10 minutes!

Lately, I’ve been trying to make homemade versions of items I buy, like marshmallow fluff and now salted caramel sauce. I love drizzling salted caramel sauce on ice cream or over pies and other desserts. During a heavy recipe testing phase, I went through several store-bought jars in just a few days and I finally had enough. I didn’t want to spend so much money on salted caramel sauce.

So I made my own. And it was surprisingly easy.

This single serving mug cake tastes just like baked old fashioned donuts or the baked donut muffins that became popular a few years ago. But instead of having to make an entire batch, you can make an individual one in just minutes.

I had a lot of fun making these. Can you tell?
