Creamy Caramel Sauce
- Active Time 25m
- Total Time 30m
Yields 2 1/4 cups
Creme fraiche is a perfect balance of flavor -- sweet, tangy, slightly bitter.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup creme fraiche (may substitute with heavy cream)
Combine the sugar, water and lemon juice in heavy 1-quart saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves, frequently brushing down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush. Increase the heat; boil without stirring until the syrup turns deep golden brown and a candy thermometer registers 335 degrees F, occasionally brushing down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush and swirling the pan, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool 5 minutes.
Carefully add the cream (the caramel will bubble up vigorously). Return to low heat; stir until any bits of caramel dissolve. Remove from the heat. Whisk in the creme fraiche. Transfer to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
