Caramel sauce, how to make homemade caramel sauce with step by step pictures:
Keep all the ingredients nearby, once the sugar has melted it can get burnt in a matter of seconds and you will need to work faster.
Add sugar in the bottom of a large saucepan, preferably in even layer. Heat the sugar over medium to low heat, once the color starts to change.
Swirl the pan, so that the sugar melts.
Swirl and tilt the sauce pan
Until all the sugar has melted.
The color of the sugar will be amber and have a light toasted aroma. You need to work fast from this point as we dont want the sugar to get burnt in a matter of seconds.
Add in butter, whisk and allow it to melt. (caramel may bubble when butter is added, so be careful).
Remove the pan from heat and add in the cream and again be careful as it might bubble up.
With a spatula or whisk help it to melt down, stirring.
Whisk until all is melted and caramel is smooth. You can add in a fat pinch of salt; if you like a salty caramel.
