It can keep up to 2 weeks in an airtight container stored in the refrigerator. Caramel sauce also freezes well. Place in a freezer-safe container once it has cooled and freeze for up to 3 months.
1. Tip the sugar into a heavy-based frying pan add 4 tablespoons water. Swirl the saucepan, don’t stir. Place over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
2. Turn up the heat and bubble for 4-5 minutes until you have caramel, do not stir, this is very important, you need to wait until it all desolves, maybe move the pan in a circle motion.
3. Take off the heat and carefully stir in the cream and butter.
4. Leave the sauce to cool and then tip into a squeezy bottle.
Ideally warm for a few seconds before use to make the consistency more runny for drizzles.
