Salted Caramel Sauce

March 23

Salted caramel is my secret fix and this cheats version is a great way to get wonderful results.  You don’t have to worry about caramelising the sugar, you simply mix the majority of the ingredients in a saucepan until melted and then stir through the cream, vanilla and sea salt.  The sauce can be used for a whole host of different desserts and goes beautifully with sticky toffee puddings.
