For the Butterscotch
I promised you an easy dessert and I plan to deliver. As I mentioned before this recipe is made up of only five ingredients. Five very important ingredients. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?
BUTTER – Because everything is better with butter. You know it’s true 😉
BROWN SUGAR – It adds colour and a certain richness to the sauce that is hard to pass up.
CASTER SUGAR – Okay, so I said it was easy I didn’t say it was good for you…
WATER – This just helps to thin the sauce into the perfect pouring consistency
CREAM – Possibly the secret to a silky, smooth butterscotch sauce!
Well, there you have it. Five simple ingredients that are transformed into a pot of sticky heaven, ready to be served with delicious vanilla ice cream and banana!
