Keep the screen of your device on


  • 1 cup 1 (200g) granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 (60g) unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 (120ml) heavy cream

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 vanilla extract (optional)

  • Pinch sea salt (optional, for salted caramel)


  • In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the granulated sugar over medium-high heat. Stir continuously using a wooden spoon or heat-resistant spatula.
  • As the sugar melts, it will clump and then turn into a golden liquid. Be cautious as the sugar will be very hot.
  • Once the sugar has completely melted and turned a deep amber color, add the unsalted butter. Be prepared for some sizzling.
  • Stir the butter into the caramelized sugar until it’s fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth.
  • Slowly pour in the heavy cream while stirring constantly. Be careful as the mixture may bubble up vigorously.
  • Continue to cook and stir the caramel for about 2-3 minutes, or until it thickens and coats the back of the spoon.
  • If you’re making salted caramel, add a pinch of sea salt and the optional vanilla extract at this stage. Stir to combine.
  • Remove the caramel sauce from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before using it.
  • Enjoy your quick and delicious homemade caramel sauce!
