Salted Caramel

What’s not to love about salted caramel, God’s nectar?!

I like my salted caramel lighter than the usual dark colour and flavour but all you need to do is cook it a minute or two longer to achieve the desired stage. Perfect with lots of things, whether desserts or coffee.

  • 250 g white sugar
  • 50 ml water
  • 100 g salted butter regular
  • ½ tsp sea salt good quality – not table, please!
  • 60 ml double cream


  • Place the water and sugar in a saucepan and heat on medium high heat, swirling the pan to get the sugar wet and to encourage it to dissolve and melt. Don’t stir.
  • Keep cooking, swirling once or twice for 5-10 minutes until the mix is a lovely caramel colour. Go longer if you want a darker shade but be very careful, blink and you’ll have a burnt mess!
  • When you’re happy with the caramel, take it off the heat and whisk in the butter gently until completely melted.
  • Add the salt, stir well, with a wooden spoon.
  • Finally, stir in the cream and vanilla. Taste. Add more salt if you like it saltier.
  • It will keep in a clean container, covered, in the fridge, for 2 weeks, easily.
