Recipe: Salted Caramel Sauce


Yes it's a buzz word... but also... who doesn't love it?


  • 250 g caster sugar
  • 50 ml water
  • 250 ml double cream
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 tsp sea salt
Heat the sugar and water

Step 1

Heat The Sugar And Water

Make a caramel by heating the sugar and water in a saucepan, swilling occasionally (but avoiding stirring), until it turns a rich amber colour and you can start to smell it.

Pour in the cream

Step 2

Pour In The Cream

Pour the cream into the pan (careful it will bubble furiously) and then swill the pan until the whole sauce is smooth and glossy. Add in the butter and salt... then cool to serve warm or cold.
