Caramel Sauce

Sauce And Assembly

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ tablespoon flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)

Directions:

  • Bring granulated sugar, corn syrup, and 2 Tbsp. water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.
  • Boil, swirling pan occasionally, until mixture turns a deep amber color, 8–10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and gradually add cream (mixture will bubble vigorously). Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and mix in butter and salt.
  • Let cool slightly before serving with cake.

DO AHEAD: Caramel sauce can be made 5 days ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before serving.
