I actually rated this recipe as 5/5 but, weirdly, it's only gone on as 4/5. It's definitely worth five stars!

Thanks to 'made with love' I left the cream out on the side for a bit so it wasn't really cold before making this sauce. The sauce came out perfect and I used it to drizzle over the caramel apple loaf cake that's on this website. It's sooo nice and it's thickened up overnight which is making it even more irresistible; I want to pour it on EVERYTHING!!! ;-D

Word of warning if you have never made this sauce before - try to use cream at room temperature and not straight out of the fridge. When cold cream hits the butter and sugar mix, the butter and sugar just clump together and it's difficult to combine. Just return the pan to a low heat and as the ingredients all reheat they will combine to make a smooth sauce - you have to be brave with this one but it is well worth it. I use the sauce to serve with french apple slice or apple cake.

Does this meant take a while to thicken? As I was adding the cream it came to the correct consistency but I still had cream left from the 300ml so I added it all... but now it’s very thin. I’m thinking maybe it thickens while it cools maybe.

Thanks for your question. It won't get much thicker once cool so we'd suggest making it to your desired consistency if you prefer it thicker.
