I'm planning to make a chocolate orange cake and fancied making an orange caramel sauce to go with it.
My plan is to make a caramel sauce by heating up butter and sugar in a pan , stirring all the time until a golden caramel and then adding whipping cream and stirring like crazy and taking off the heat.
My question is what is the best way to get orange flavour in there? Can i add orange juice instead or cream? That doesn't feel like it will work.
Could I mix orange juice with the cream first then add that? If I reduced the OJ down before mixing it with the cream I assume I'd get more orange flavour?
Any other ideas? I will only have access to oranges and juice, no orange oil or anything fancy.
