I will not add any stars in this review because I believe there is a mistake in the recipe. I do not think that water should be added to the sugar prior to heating. I made the recipe as stated and there was no caramel-like process going on. The texture turned out like white sand and the addition of cream and butter didn't help. I had to throw it out. Instead I made a sauce by melting 1/2 cup sugar on a hot pan (dont stir or touch until fully melted), then added 1/4 cup of butter and let it melt while stirring. After letting it cool I added 1/3 cup whipping cream and that did the trick. The way I see it it is basically the cream that turns the caramel into caramel sauce.
Directions See How It's Made
- Tip the sugar into a heavy-based frying pan, stir in 4 tbsp water, then place over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
- Turn up the heat and bubble for 4-5 minutes, until you have caramel. Take off the heat, and then carefully stir in the cream and butter. Leave the sauce to cool.
