1 cup granulated sugar

6 tbsp. butter (room temperature)

½ cup whipping cream

1 tsp. salt


In a medium saucepan heat granulated sugar over medium-low heat. Stir it continuously with a wooden spoon. After 7- 8 minutes, the sugar will melt into a thick brown, amber-coloured liquid as you keep stirring (at this point be careful not to burn the sugar)

As soon as the sugar is completely melted, add the butter. (the mixture at this point will bubble hastily – be careful). Stir the butter until it is completely melted (won’t take more than 1 – 2 minutes)

Now, turn the heat to low and add the cream while stirring. You have to be cautious as the mixture will hastily bubble again and it may even splash out a little.

After it boils for a minute turn the heat off. Take the pan off the gas top and add salt to it. Stir properly and let it cool. Serve with desserts and enjoy.
