Salted Caramel Brownie Recipe

A quick yummy treat!

I make these brownies almost weekly and they might be the reason why I need a new pair of jeans. But they are just SO good I can’t resist and besides that they are so easy to make, I can whip them up in about 10 mins, then it’s just the torturous wait while they’re in the oven. The original recipe came from here, which is a handy video to show you exactly how it’s done.

Ingredients:

  • 150g Chocolate
  • 250g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
  • 150g Unsalted Butter
  • 100g Plain Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Salted Caramel Sauce

The recipe is for a 20 x 20 baking tin, but mine wasn’t exactly that and it was fine.

Step 1:

Step 2:

Add each egg one at a time and mix in between. Then the vanilla extract and the flour, giving the mixture a good stir.

Step 3:

Pour the mixture into your baking tin and add whatever topping you like. I went with salted caramel sauce, but I have used gin & tonic salted caramel sauce which was delicious (so delicious I finished the jar…oops). It’s up to you how much you put on, I put a good few teaspoons on the top and then swirled it around with a fork.

Step 4:

Pop your tin in the oven for around 25-30 minutes, depending on how efficient your oven is, and whether you like your brownies still squidgey (take them out at 25 mins) or more solid (30 mins). I like them more solid, so I wait until a knife comes out clean when I poke it.

Allow them to cool for 20 minutes (or as long as you can resist) and enjoy!
