Home-made Salted Caramel Sauce

With it being pancake day tomorrow you might be looking for something tasty to top your pancakes with, whether you make American Style pancakes or the more traditional crepe style. Here is a simple caramel sauce that goes particularly well with bananas. You can add more or less salt according to your taste - I was making this for my children so only added a pinch.


It can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Salted Caramel Sauce

425g Caster Sugar
100ml Water
25g Butter
284ml Double Cream
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Sea Salt

  • Add the sugar and water to a pan over a medium heat
  • Dissolve the sugar in the water and bring to a gentle simmer
  • Simmer until the sugar mixture has turned a light caramel colour *
  • Remove from the heat, stir in the butter until melted
  • Stir in the cream, vanilla and salt until combined

The sauce thickens once cooled completely.

* be patient and don't be tempted to boil rapidly or you may end up with a pan of crystals *cough*, apparently. If you do then remove from the heat and add a small amount of water and start again.
