1. Place the caster sugar and water into a saucepan and stir over a low heat, Induction setting 3, until the sugar dissolves, approximately 10 minutes.
2. Using a wet pastry brush, brush down the sides of the saucepan to dissolve any sugar crystals.
3. Once the sugar has dissolved, increase to a medium high heat, Induction setting 7, and bring to the boil.
4. Reduce to heat, Induction setting 5 and simmer uncovered, without stirring for 10 minutes or until the mixture turns a light golden colour.
5. Remove from the heat and using a wooden spoon stir in the brown sugar, then the cream (careful, it may splutter), until well combined.
6. Return to a medium heat, Induction setting 5 and cook for 2 minutes or until smooth.
Turn Budino out onto a plate and pour the caramel sauce over the top. Serve with some crumbled Amaretti biscuit.
