The Lazy Gal's Salted Caramel Syrup Hack

We always have pancakes for breakfast on Saturday. It’s only right. After a hectic week of Lagos; heat, traffic et al., there’s nothing better than a lazy Saturday morning. Sleeping in, watching TV and  feasting on oatmeal, fruit and pancakes (I make two kinds: the thick American pancakes, and the thin crepe-like European pancakes. Recipes for both coming up in a bit).

This morning, though, we were out of honey. 😕

Presenting the lazy gal’s salted caramel syrup. Simple. Delicious.


100g unsalted butter (cut into small cubes)

1/2 cup cream (I used whipping cream)

1/2 cup Lyle’s Golden Syrup

  1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan and put on medium heat.
  2. Stir till the butter melts and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Increase the heat and leave to boil for 5 minutes. (Watch it, though. So it doesn’t boil over the sides of the saucepan.)  
  4. Turn off the heat and leave it to cool and thicken. Add two pinches of salt and stir. (Add more if you like, keep tasting).
  5. Serve with pancakes. Or vanilla ice-cream. Or cookies…

Warning: this syrup is addictive. Not suitable for #fitfam followers. Lol. Try it. Let me know. 😉
