Butterscotch Sauce

This silky sauce can be enjoyed hot or cold and only takes a few minutes to make so can be whipped up on the spur of the moment.  I have also made this with normal brown sugar and yellow sugar before.  Each obviously produces a slightly different flavour and colour but are all equally as yummy.

Butterscotch Sauce



125ml butter
125ml dark brown sugar
30ml golden syrup
125ml cream


  1. Heat the butter in a saucepan.
  2. Add the sugar and syrup and stir over a gentle heat until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Stir in the cream and simmer for 2 minutes.
