  2. Stir in the vanilla and salt.
  3. Whisk corn syrup in 2tbsp milk; add this to the butter mixture. Whisking continuously cook for 1~2 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Turn off the heat and let the syrup cool. This can be made up to 1 week in advance and chilled in an airtight container until ready to use.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 8" square baking pan or a 8~10" cast iron skillet or 6~8 8oz. ramekins with cooking spray.

  6. In a medium bowl, combine non-dairy milk, applesauce, coconut sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and ½cup of the butterscotch sauce. Add this mixture to the bread mixture and stir until combined. Soak for about 5 minutes.
  7. Transfer the mixture into the prepared pan(s). Bake for 30~40 minutes (or 20~25 minutes for ramekins), until the top is set and beginning to turn golden brown. Remove and let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.
  8. Serve with a drizzle of the remaining butterscotch sauce. Enjoy!!
