How to make caramel syrup ?

As promised I’m sharing the recipe of caramel syrup today . This is an important recipe for those who love baking. Caramel syrup is used to bake caramel cake and also in plum cakes. This can also be used to drizzle over desserts. The ingredients of the recipe is very few and the recipe looks very simple. But I learnt to prepare this syrup with practice and trial and error. Once you hook the technique it is very easy to prepare. Some recipe calls for only sugar while caramelizing but it didn’t work for me. I always add little water while caramelizing.
