Salted Caramel Sauce

This 10 minute salted caramel recipe requires only 4 easy ingredients and It’s perfect for cakes, cupcakes, cookies,ice cream and more!


1 cup (200g) granulated Sugar.

6 Tablespoons (90g) salted Butter at room temperature cut up into 6 pieces.

1/2 cup (120ml) Cream.

1 tsp Salt.


Heat granulated sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon. Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown colored liquid as you continue to stir. Be careful not to burn.

Once sugar is completely melted, immediately add the butter. Be careful in this step because the caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added.

Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted, about 2 minutes.

Very slowly drizzle in 1/2 cup of cream while stirring. Since the heavy cream is colder than the caramel, the mixture will rapidly bubble when added. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute. It will rise in the pan as it boils.

Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Allow to slightly cool down before using. Caramel thickens as it cools.

Cover tightly and store for up to 1 month in the refrigerator. Caramel solidifies in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave to get desired consistency.

TIP-1.The cream will bubble up quite a bit when you add it, make sure to use a saucepan that’s a little bigger than what you think you will need.
2.Be sure to keep your ingredients ready before you get started, this will make the process much smoother.

Happy Cooking!!
