Wait until the sugar begins to melt, it will begin to caramelize.

At this point, swirl the caramel constantly. As soon as it begins to take on a nice caramel color, remove the pan from the heat.

If there are any lumps of sugar, continue turning off the heat and return to the heat slightly. Be careful not to let the caramel heat too long as it will be too bitter.

Once the caramel is ready, quickly pour it into your buttered springform pan before it hardens.

Bake for approximately 40 minutes. Be careful, the cake can cook quickly. If so, lower the oven thermostat. Insert the blade of a knife to check the cooking.

Unmold the cake onto a wire rack.

Enjoy !
