  • 1
    For lime-vanilla caramel, stir sugar and 60ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, brush down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush then cook, swirling pan occasionally once mixture starts to caramelise, until dark caramel (4-5 minutes). Remove from heat, place saucepan in sink and carefully add 70ml cold water (caramel will spit, so stand back). Swirl to combine, then add lime juice and vanilla, and swirl again. Transfer to a heatproof bowl and refrigerate to cool.
