Toffee Caramel Sauce - Recipe
|Toffee (Caramel) Sauce on Sticky Toffee Pudding|
Pictured here, the toffee caramel sauce is on Sticky Toffee pudding. However, I have spooned this on top of chocolate cake. Yes, I know. It was like a wonderful soft chocolate caramel bar.
Toffee (Caramel) Sauce
(Yield 1 1/2 c.)
1 c. Dark Brown Sugar
12 T. Butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 c. Heavy Cream
Let the cream come near room temperature. Melt the sugar and butter in a heavy sauce pan on medium heat until reaching a simmer, stirring constantly. Turn heat to low and simmer, stirring, until sugar is almost completely dissolved. Slowly and carefully add cream while whisking. It may bubble up. Simmer until sauce coats the back of a spoon. It thickens as it cools. Spoon atop cakes, ice cream, fresh fruit.
