Caramel topping recipe

This easy caramel topping is perfect on sundaes, ice-cream and pancakes. You can make it ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator for when you need something sweet.



  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups thickened cream


Place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring all the time until the sugar dissolves.

Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often until nice semi-thick consistency is reached.



  • Keep this topping in the fridge for up to one month and it will be there anytime you need a sweet hit.
  • It is delicious poured over ice-cream or pancakes and waffles.
  • I like it best on banana pancakes.
