  • 3/4 cup (165g) sugar
  • 90 grams butter
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) cream
  • 1 tsp salt


  • In a pot over a medium heat heat the sugar, stirring constantly with a spatula or wooden spoon. The sugar will start to clump together and after about 6-7 minutes it will melt completely into a thick amber liquid. Be careful not to let the sugar burn.
  • Once the sugar has melted, add the butter. The mixture will bubble and may splatter a little so be careful as the sugar is extremely hot.
  • Continue to stir until the butter is melted (1-2 minutes) and then slowly pour in the cream. There will be more bubbling and splattering in this step so again, be careful.
  • Allow the sauce to come to the boil, and then remove from heat and stir in the salt.
  • Let the sauce cool in the saucepan before transferring to a jar to store in the fridge.
  • The caramel will harden as it cools so you will need to heat it before using.
