Delicious toffee sauce to go with pancakes, ice-cream, sticky toffee pudding, meringues & berries.....

Home-made Delicious Toffee Sauce

How can something so simple be so delicious?  This sauce is so versatile and can add naughty delectability to just about any dessert dish.  You can even use to add a bit of something special to an everyday apple crumble, just spoon the sauce over the apple, then top with the crumble....Yum!  I adore it on pancakes too, so will be making some today!

You will need:

  • 55g butter (unsalted is best, but salted will give you the In Vogue Salted Caramel taste)
  • 80ml double cream (you can try to go a bit healthier with this and use the lower fat varieties!)
  • 110g dark brown soft sugar (the darer the sugar the darker the sauce, so if you prefer a lighter colour then use light brown sugar)


1.  Put butter, cream and sugar into a pan over a medium heat
2.  Stir constantly until mixture bubbles and sugar is dissolved
3.  Drizzle over the dessert of your choice whilst still hot; or allow to cool slightly and pour into a jar with a  good seal/lid, store in fridge until you need it.

When I make a batch of this sauce, I usually have it in the fridge for about 1 month, just taking out small amounts as and when required and heating in microwave in a small jug or/ramekin for about 15-20 seconds.  I should also add that I always double up on the ingredients to make a larger quantity, which is maybe why it lasts me a month!  It is superb with the pancake recipe :)
