Community Recipe from @erinmadethis See recipe details


  • 400g of caster sugar
  • 125ml of water
  • 150g of salted butter
  • 300ml of cream
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes


  1. Place the sugar and the water in the base of a heavy bottom saucepan. Do not stir.
  2. Heat on a medium heat and allow the mixture to come to a simmer.
  3. Keep your eye on the pot and once the sugar is a slight amber colour, remove from the heat and whisk in the butter.
  4. Once the butter is combined, return to the heat and add the cream while whisking. It'll become silky and smooth and there will be no fat separating from the caramel.
  5. Remove from the heat, add the salt flakes and whisk.
  6. Allow to slightly cool slightly and transfer to a jar while still warm.
  7. Makes 600ml
  8. Serve warm on cakes, cupcakes, ice-cream, and cookies. Delectable!
