Sluttishly Sweet: Sea Salted Caramel Sauce


I should warn you that this sauce is seriously addictive, in fact it is the crack cocaine of sauces that will have you sneaking spoonfuls from the jar at all hours of the day and night.

It's amazing drizzled it over blueberry pancakes, or try it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a filled yorkie or another favourite of mine is to use it to make some kick ass cocktails. Make LOTS though as you will find yourself simply eating it straight out of the jar in your pyjamas at 3am.

You'll need:
  • 120g soft light brown sugar
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 1 tblsp water
  • 250ml double cream
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes
Make it!
  1. Put the butter, sugar and water into a saucepan and heat gently. Don't stir it though just swirl the saucepan to mix.
  2. Once it's melted turn up the heat slightly and let it bubble away for 3 minutes before whisking in the double cream. Remove from the heat and add your sea salt flakes, taste and see if you want more salt (it may be hot so be careful, a burnt tongue is really painful!). You can use the sauce straight away but if you chill it in the fridge it will thicken up nicely. This will happily keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks but I doubt you will be able to resist eating it before then!

  4. Is it wrong to try this with my creme egg cupcakes?
    What about with a baked apple, cored, in the oven with water, yummy! And grilled pineapple... Right, must prepare double dose.

    1. It's ridiculously addictive isn't it? It never fails to cheer even the most rubbish of days with one big spoonful!

  7. Just made this and is quite runny, does it thicken up a bit as it cools/chills? Maybe used too much cream? Tastes devine though and was very easy to do! :-)

    1. Hi Anon,

      Grams are English, they've been in use since 1965! But we do have a conversion chart, should you wish to use that:
