Bread and Butter Pudding
Salted Caramel Sauce
- 1 cup caster sugar
- ½ cup cream
- 115g butter
- 1/2 - 1 tsp sea salt flakes
Method - Salted Caramel Sauce
Place sugar in a medium saucepan with a splash of water and place over a medium heat. Do not stir the mixture at all, just tilt the pan if it is melting unevenly. Cook until sugar is melted, and then let it boil until the mixture turns a dark amber colour, about 5-7 minutes.
Remove caramel from the heat and very carefully add the cream and butter. The mixture will bubble up. Allow to settle then return to heat and heat on low until combined and smooth. Add salt to taste, and then leave the sauce to cool slightly before drizzling over pudding.
