Salted Caramel Double Chocolate Brownies

INGREDIENTS:

65g/2oz Odlums All Purpose Cream Flour

80g/3oz  Cocoa Powder

300g10  Sugar

2 Eggs

240g/8oz Unsalted Butter (room temperature)

2 tsps Goodalls 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

 

METHOD:

- 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.

- Once it starts to darken, remove from the heat and stir in the butter until melted completely.

- 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.

- Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes before using.

- While cooling, make your Brownie batter: Preheat the oven to 180'C. Line an 8 x8 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.

- 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.

- 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.
