Home made caramel sauce is super easy, super cheap, and will last for ages in the fridge.
1 cup white sugar – 225g
4 tbsp water
1/2 cup cream – 120 ml
1/3 cup butter – 80g
Melt and boil sugar and water in a pan. This will bubble and boil for about 10 minutes. You need to watch this until it starts to turn golden and brown. No stirring.
Have your butter and cream ready in the fridge.
When it starts to turn golden and brown add your butter and whisk.
Add the cream and continue to whisk.
Once the butter and cream are whisked into your pan your caramel is ready to pour into a nice jar or pot. Let it cool a little before you put it in the fridge.
Hey presto quick easy home made caramel sauce. I keep one in my fridge. I use it for pavlova or cheesecake or biscuits. You can warm it if you need it runny but it will harden a little when cooled.
