  2. Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F). Heat sugar with just a little bit of water (1 tablespoon) in a saucepan over medium heat. Do not stire or change the heat until the sugar colors. When the sugar begin to brown, bring back in the middle the sugar on the sides with a spatula and add carefully the diced butter.
