  • Stove-top or Thermomix


  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 250 g brown sugar packed
  • 125 g thickened cream not light cream
  • ΒΌ-1/2 tsp salt (depending on how salty you like your sauce


Conventional Method

  • Place your butter into a saucepan over a low heat. Allow it to slowly melt, while stirring occasionally.
  • When the butter has completely melted, add the brown sugar and the cream.
  • Increase the temperature to medium. Stir occasionally until the sugar has all dissolved.
  • Add the salt and give it a quick taste - add extra salt if required (be careful because it will be hot!).
  • Stir occasionally until the sauce begins to gently simmer and then allow to simmer for 2 minutes (still giving it the occasional stir). Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Store in a sterilised jar for up to 2 weeks.

Thermomix Method

  • Place all ingredients into the TM bowl. Cook on Varoma, Speed 2 for 6-9 minutes with the MC off (cook for a further couple of minutes if you'd like your sauce to be thicker).
  • Please note: sauce will thicken further on cooling.
