  • 1 cup 200 grams sugar
  • 6 tablespoons 90 grams unsalted cubed butter
  • 1/2 cup 120 ml heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Place sugar in a medium saucepan, and place it on a medium hot stove. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon.
  • The sugar will take sometime to melt, so be patient with it. It will first start forming clumps as it melts, and change color to an amber-gold liquid. Be careful so as to not to burn the sugar.
  • Once it has melted completely and is a deep amber-gold, add the cubes of the butter and keep stirring continuously. The caramel will bubble rapidly as the cold butter hits it so be careful while stirring.
  • Once the butter has melted completely, add in the heavy cream. Once again the caramel will bubble rapidly so please be careful while stirring.
  • Allow the caramel to boil for 1-2 minutes and then take it off heat. Add the salt, and mix it.
  • The caramel needs to be cooled completely before it can be used.
  • Eat with a spoon. Or you know, do the less indulgent thing by adding it to ice cream or your choice of dessert.
