Remember my little Salted Caramel Spread breakdown? Well, let’s say Pancake Day didn’t make it any better.
I browsed the web, and the stores in search of one of those magic little jars, but nothing.
The obsession reached its pick yesterday (everybody knows calories don’t count on Pancake day!), so I just gave up and whipped up my own version of that sweet, sweet (and a little bit salty) spread.
Sweet and salty and creamy all at once.
So good I -almost- ditched the pancakes for a spoon (almost, because #pancakeday)
And the good news is, it’s super easy and as good, if not better as the store-bought version!
Salted caramel spread
Ingredients: 300g granulated sugar, a little bit of water (about 2-3 tbsp), 50g butter, 3 tbsp crème fraiche, couple pinches sea salt flakes
1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and the water and cook at high heat until it reaches full caramelisation.
2. Take off the heat and add in the butter. Mix until thoroughly combined.
3. Add in the cream and the sea salt flakes and mix until perfectly combined.
4. If you want a thicker texture, add in a bit more butter (the whole thing will thicken slightly as it cools down).
What do you like to put on your pancakes?
