Recipe

Rich and buttery, this sauce is a hit with young and old.

Good with ice cream or for a treat, with pancakes stacked with whipped cream, sliced bananas, and toasted pecan nuts.

Yield: Makes just over 1 cup
Prep time: 5 Mins
Cooking time: 5 Mins

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • Scant 1 cup heavy cream

Directions

1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in the sugar and cook, stirring often, until the sugar dissolves.

2. Pour in the cream and stir until well combined and glossy. Increase the heat and boil gently, whisking, for 2 minutes, until thickened slightly. Remove from the heat and allow the sauce to cool. Serve warm or cold.

Notes

Prepare ahead: The sauce can be refrigerated up to 1 week. To keep the sauce from separating, warm it in a few batches, letting the first portion heat before adding another.
