Apple dunkers in salted butterscotch sauce


Apple dunkers in salted butterscotch sauce

50 grams butter

50 grams of soft brown sugar (we use vanilla sugar)

50 grams golden syrup

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Tiny squeeze of lemon juice

75 ml of double cream

Bung all the ingredients (except the cream) into a saucepan and heat until the sugar has melted and all the ingredients have blended together. Allow the sauce to cook (stirring constantly) for about 5 minutes to thicken and darken. Turn off the heat and stir the double cream in until it’s mixed thoroughly and the sauce is thick, gooey and glossy. A word of warning – be careful cooking with sugar as it’s really, really hot!

Serve the sauce with your favourite fresh fruit. I normally prepare all my fruit before I make the sauce and to stop my apple slices from going brown, I steep them in ice cold water that’s had the juice of half a lemon squeezed into the water.
