1. To make the sauce, heat the sugar with 2 Tbsp water in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Try not to stir it - swirl the pan instead to encourage the sugar to dissolve evenly. Simmer for 7-9 minutes, or until the liquid begins to turn amber (be careful not to burn it!)

2. Quickly add the butter. Stir the mixture until it is completely melted, for about 2-3 minutes.

3. Slowly drizzle in the cream while stirring. Boil the mixture for 1 minute until it is smooth, golden and thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the salt.

4. Place scoops of ice cream into glasses, topped with crumbled pudding (or cake), then a drizzle of the sauce. Add a dollop of whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon to finish.


You can make this sauce in advance – just warm the caramel up before serving.
