churros with caramel sauce

- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 100g butter, chopped

- 1 cup (250ml) single (pouring) cream
- 1 cup (175g) brown sugar
- 60g butter, chopped
- To make the caramel sauce, place the cream, sugar and butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until butter is melted.Cook for 4–5 minutes or until thickened slightly. Set aside. Mix to combine the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
- Place the butter and water in a saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Add the flour and salt and beat with a wooden spoon until mixture leaves the sides of the pan. Remove from heat.

Hi Sera, left over caramel sauce is great for pancakes or even over ice cream. Enjoy! The DH Team
Great team activity. Lots of fun. What can I do with the left over caramel? X
The cinnamon part was a little confusing. The end result was yummy. Thank you
