This is the ‘Ohh, baby’ of all my brownies, the one that has you tripping over your heels for a piece. The sign on my stall reads ‘Get one and you’ll understand’, but to go into a little more detail, this is a truly seductive dark chocolate brownie, intensified with coffee and lit with cinnamon. Oh and yes, the canyons and rivers of caramel ...

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
350g salted butter, plus extra for greasing
115g plain flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
200g cocoa powder
2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
650g caster sugar
6 large free-range eggs
200g good-quality dark chocolate chips
300g Classic salted caramel sauce, chilled

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Butter and line a 30 × 20 cm brownie pan with baking parchment.
  2. Sift the flour into a bowl and add the sea salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cocoa and espresso powders. Weigh out the sugar in another bowl and the chocolate chips in another.
  3. Gently melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Remove the from the heat and, using a rubber spatula, gently mix in the cocoa and espresso powders and stir to a smooth paste.
  4. Add the sugar in three stages, mixing thoroughly but gently to obtain a thick paste. Add the eggs two at a time, beating well but not vigorously so you incorporate as little air into the mix as possible. Fold through the flour and salt mix and then the chocolate chips, until throughly combined.
  5. Pour two-thirds of the brownie batter into the prepared brownie pan and smooth to form an even layer. Dollop the cold salted caramel over the top. The larger the dollops, the more extreme the pockets of caramel in the finished brownies – if they are smaller, you’ll get a more uniform layer. Working quickly before the mixture cools and seizes, ripple over the remaining one-third of the brownie batter to cover the entire surface of the previous layers.
  6. Bake for 20–25 minutes, or until firm around the edges but still slightly jiggly in the middle.
  7. Leave to cool in the pan, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours before cutting. Brownies are best stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.
