    Syrinx's Note:

    I have always known this sauce as butterscotch sauce, but I suppose that toffee sauce would be an equally good name. It is ideal served over ice cream and sliced banana, and is very popular with children - especially when you boil the sauce for a bit too long, and it turns to toffee when you pour it on the cold ice cream! It is a very sweet sauce, so you may not need too much of it. I have suggested that the quantity in the recipe serves 4 to 8, but really it depends on how much you serve out, and how sweet a tooth you have. It's easy to scale up or down - you just use equal weights of the three ingredients. If you use light brown sugar, you get a lighter-flavoured sauce, with a more predominant butter flavour, which I think is better than the sauce you get with dark brown sugar. Variations - If you like, you can add cinnamon, ginger or vanilla to the mixture. But the taste of the sauce tends to overwhelm additional flavourings, so I no longer bother to experiment.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the ingredients in a small pan, and heat until melted (stirring constantly), then bring to the boil.
    2. 2
      Simmer for between one and two minutes (or for a minute or two longer if you want an exciting toffee effect).
    3. 3
      Serve immediately, poured over ice cream and sliced bananas.
    4. 4
      Washing up: As soon as the pan is empty, soak it in very hot water for a while. Even if you have chosen the toffee approach, the sugar should dissolve, making clean-up easy.
