Salted caramel sauce


150g granulated sugar

125ml of double cream

10g salted butter

Pinch rock salt/sea salt


  1. Melt the sugar in a pot over a medium heat until it goes dark brown, take it as far as you can without it smoking

  2. Remove from the heat and add the salt and about half of the cream and whisk through. The mixture will really bubble up so be careful.

  3. Once it calms down add the rest of the cream and keep whisking

  4. If the mixture goes lumpy return to the heat and whisk until lumps have melted

  5. Put into a heatproof container and put into the fridge to cool and store​

I love this gooey, rich and easy to make salted caramel sauce. It makes a great dipping sauce, it's delicious poured over ice cream or used in sundaes. Sometimes I like to eat it with just a spoon!
