A jar of toffee sauce with a spoon

Step by Step Recipe

1) First add cream, butter, sugar & salt into a saucepan. Gently heat up the mixture (the butter will look like its splitting but that’s okay).

2) Once the sauce gets hot carefully mix it together with a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved.

3) Bring the sauce to a simmer and add the spices. Continue to simmer the sauce for at least 5 minutes. The colour will start to change to an amber colour and the sauce will start to thicken.

4) Either add a lid or wrap the top of the pan with cling film. Leave the spices to infuse for 45 to 60 minutes.

Sieving the sauce into another saucepan

5a) If you would like to use the toffee sauce now. Sieve the mixture into another sauce pan and reheat.

5b) If you would like to use the toffee sauce later. Sieve the mixture into an airtight container and refrigerate. This sauce will last for up to 28 days.

Best Way to Reheat Toffee Sauce
