Makes: 250ml sauce
  • • White Granulated Sugar, 1 cup or 200 grams approx
  • • Soft Butter, 6 tablespoons
  • • Cream, ½ cup or 120 ml (I used D’lecta)
  • • Sea Salt, 2 teaspoons OR 1 teaspoon table salt
  1. Transfer the sugar to a heavy bottom pan and melt it on a low flame until it turns amber in color. Keep stirring in intervals with a spatula (but not too much). The sugar will form into clumps but will eventually melt.

  5. Once the sugar is melted, add in the butter, still on low flame and let it melt. The sugar will splatter slightly so be careful.

  7. Once the butter and sugar are combined (they won't combine completely don't worry) and the butter is all melted, add in the cream. This step is when the caramel will go crazy so make sure you don't burn yourself.

  9. Once you add the cream, boil the caramel for a full minute on high and keep stirring.
  10. After a minute turn off the heat and mix in 1 teaspoon of sea salt to your caramel. Taste it and see if you'd like to add more. I started with 1 teaspoon but went up to 2. Try what you like and adjust the salt according to your taste. Remember you can add more but you cannot take away the salt so add it with restraint.
  11. Transfer the caramel to a glass jar and store it in the refrigerator. I made mine 3-4 weeks back and it's still perfect.
