What you need:

Brownies

  • 65g/2oz                     Odlums All Purpose Cream Flour
  • 80g/3oz                    Cocoa Powder
  • 300g/10oz                Sugar
  • 2                                 Eggs
  • 240g/8oz                  Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
  • 2 tsps                         Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp                           Salt
  • 80g/3oz                    Chocolate Chips or roughly chopped chocolate

Salted Caramel Sauce

  • 200g/7oz                   Sugar
  • 120g/4oz                   Unsalted Butter
  • 125ml                         Double cream
  • 1 ½ tsps                      Sea Salt

How to:

  1. For the caramel, heat the sugar in a saucepan on a medium heat. Swirl the pan to evenly distribute the sugar. Lightly stir the sugar with a spatula or wooden spoon for about 5 minutes until it becomes a light golden-brown liquid.
  2. Once it starts to darken, remove from the heat and stir in the butter until melted completely.
  3. Pour in the heavy cream and sea salt. You can use 1to 1 ½ tsps of salt, depending on how salty you like it. Stir well until it is all combined. Put it back on the heat for about 30 to 45 seconds, stirring all the while.
  4. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes before using.
  5. While cooling, make your Brownie batter: Preheat the oven to 180’C. Line an 8 x8 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until smooth. Stir in the sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt and mix to combine.
  7. Fold in the cocoa powder and flour and fold in the chocolate chips. Pour a little over half the brownie batter into the baking dish and spread evenly.
  8. Pour ¾ of the caramel sauce over the brownie batter, spread evenly.  Spoon the rest of the brownie batter over the top, covering as much of the caramel as possible.
  9. Bake for roughly 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean (its ok if there is caramel on it you just don’t want any chocolate brownie batter)
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
  11. Serve with left over caramel sauce and ice-cream or whipped cream.
