Even the thought of making Caramel Sauce used to scare the pants off me but this recipe is a simple, speedy solution and a perfect accompaniment to any dessert.
You will need:
- 100g Butter
- 100g Muscovado Sugar
- 250ml Double Cream
- Pinch of Salt
- Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and bring the mix to the boil stirring frequently so the sauce doesn’t burn.
- Turn down the heat and continue on a steady boil for 5 mins or until the sauce thickens to a caramel like consistency. (I know this will be tricky as the sauce looks soo good but refrain from sticking your fingers into the sauce, it will burn!!).
- Turn off the heat and leave to cool for 5 mins and enjoy with your favourite dessert or drizzled over cupcakes or ice cream.
Try this: Cool and use as a centre for Caramel filled Cupcakes. Make your usual cupcake mix and add 1 tea spoon into the case, add a teaspoon of the caramel (as it has cooled it should be thick enough to hold itself) and top off with another spoon of cupcake mix. Bake as you usually would, add your touch with decorations and enjoy. Perfect!!
