Ingredients

  • 100g butter
  • 75g soft light brown sugar
  • 75g golden syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt (we like Maldon sea salt, from major supermarkets)
  • 300ml double cream
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 50g pecan halves, toasted

Vanilla ice cream, to serve

Method

  1. Put the butter, brown sugar, golden syrup, vanilla and salt into a small saucepan and melt over a medium heat. Stir in the cream and bubble for 5 minutes until thickened slightly.
  2. Scatter the caster sugar over the surface of a non-stick frying pan. Place over a medium heat and allow to melt (without stirring), shaking the pan until all the sugar has melted and turned golden brown. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, add the pecans and toss in the caramel until coated. Tip onto a lightly oiled sheet of foil, leave to cool, then break into pieces.
  3. To serve, place scoops of ice cream into 4 bowls, pour over the warm caramel sauce and scatter with the caramelised pecans.
