Total time: 15 to 30 minutes

Prep. time: a few minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

For 6 servings

- 100 g (3 1/2 oz.) caster sugar
- 75 g (5 Tbsp.) softened butter
- 400 ml (1 cup + 10 Tbsp.) crème fraîche
- 1 vanilla bean

With rum
- 1 Tbsp. aged rum
  1. In a heavy saucepan, heat the sugar, butter and the seeds scraped from the vanilla bean over low heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Once the sugar has turned a nice caramel color, remove the pan from the heat and incorporate the cream.
  3. Return the pan to medium heat and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the caramel is shiny and smooth.

If you wish to flavor the sauce with rum, add it last so that the flavor doesn't dissipate.
