This caramel sauce is so smooth and delicious. It's quick and easy to make and so much better than any store bought caramel I've ever tried.
- 125g butter
- 1 Cup brown sugar
- 1 Cup water
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 1 ½ tbsp cornflour
- ¼ Cup thickened cream
- 1 vanilla bean
Mix together butter, sugar and the vanilla bean which has been split in half lengthwise and scraped to remove the seeds. Combine in a small pan over low heat and stir until the butter melts, the sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes thick. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
Mix the cornflour, golden syrup and water together in a small bowl until smooth. Add to the pan and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat, stir in the cream and allow to cool slightly. Remove the vanilla Bean.
Serve warm or cold.
