This year, for Candlemas, we enjoyed pancakes generously garnished with homemade salted butter caramel. Since then, we have been using this gourmet recipe in many desserts, accompanied by a simple Swiss cheese, a slice of brioche or bread, or a vanilla ice cream … You can also taste it just from the jar 😉
Here is the recipe that I’d like to share with you. It will allow you to make about 4 pots of 300g … To keep then cool in the fridge..
- Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
- 1 kg of powdered sugar
- 125 g salted butter
- 800 ml of fresh cream
- 2 tablespoons of water
Pour the sugar into a saucepan with two tablespoons of water. Cook over medium-high heat until caramel is lightly brown (5 minutes). Remove the pan from the heat, add the salted butter immediately and stir gently. Then add the cream, stir and cook again on a low heat for 20 minutes. Stir frequently.
Wait until the cream cols down to pour into small jars that you will keep several weeks in the refrigerator.
Here in Paris, we’re enjoying snowy days… So beautiful! What about you, is it snowing in your place?
See you very soon,
