About this recipe: Sugar, golden syrup, salt, vanilla extract, double cream and butter, are simmered together to create this delicious caramel sauce. Use as a dip or a pouring sauce over ice cream or cakes.


Serves: 12

  1. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the caster sugar, golden syrup and salt. Bring to the boil and heat to between 112 to 116 degrees C or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
  2. Stir in the butter and double cream carefully - the mixture will bubble up. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Cool slightly before dipping apples or other fruit.
