Ingredients (To serve 6)

  • Lightly salted butter 20 g
  • Double cream 100 ml
  • Caster sugar 100 g

Chef's tip

"Use a stainless steel frying pan when making caramel, this will allow you to see the colour of the caramel."


Place the caster sugar in a hot frying pan and leave to caramelise without stirring. Tilt the pan from side to side to ensure the sugar melts evenly and allow to darken to a deep dark golden colour.

Reduce to a low heat and add the butter. Allow to melt before adding the double cream and mixing well.

Serve a generous drizzle over ice cream or gooey chocolate brownies.
