Caramel Sauce For A Cold Monday Morning.

Caramel sauce is super yummy and a lovely cosy thing to make as an easy winter pudding.  Pop some caramel sauce over ice cream or some warmed cake and everyone will think you are a domestic goddess...

It is so easy to make.

Caramel Sauce
Caramel Sauce and Ice Cream


  • 1 cup of loosely packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup of cream
  • 200g of butter

Now the method is really easy.  Pop all the ingredients in a pot and stir until the sugar dissolves.  Let simmer for about 5 minutes and stir occasionally.  Done!

This sauce will keep in the fridge for a few days but will need heating up before use.  I use salted butter because I like a tiny bit of salt in caramel.  If you don't, just use unsalted butter.

So - there it is, yummy caramel sauce.  Not good for you in the slightest but sometimes everyone needs a bit of sweetness to brighten their day.

Enjoy Monday.

(I have linked this recipe to the Sweet As Sugar Cookies link up.  Pop over if you want some more yummy stuff to look at.)

Yummm! I wonder what else you could put it on. Dipping apple slices in it maybe? Have a lovely day.

Oh this is perfect timing! My other half LOVES caramel and I've been wanting to make him a warm caramel sauce for ages but haven't found one. THANK YOU!!!

There is also a delicious and totally indulgent hot caramel cocktail in this month's taste magazine. It is made with Nestle Top N Fill, cream and butterscotch schnaps. If you like caramel, it is well worth trying.
