what’s better than brownies? brownies WITH DULCE DE LECHE! oh baby! so other than making a banoffee pie i stumbled onto david lebovitz’s awesome recipe and knew i had to make em
thanks to the awesome emma from bangpr, i scored some green & black’s organic chocolate so i used a mixture of the dark chocolate with a bit of milk chocolate
ingredients: 115g salted or unsalted butter; 170g bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped; 1/4cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder; 3 large eggs; 1cup sugar; 1tsp vanilla extract; 1cup flour; 1cup of your awesome home made dulce de leche
mmm chocolate. roughly chop. line square/rectangle brownie pan with foil. make sure it goes up the edges. spray with a bit of oil and preheat oven to 175C
melt the butter in a medium saucepan. add the chocolate pieces and stir constantly over very low heat until the chocolate is melted. remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth. add in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the sugar, vanilla, then the flour
scrape half of the batter into the prepared pan
now grab your jar of dulce de leche. maybe swipe a spoonful first.
drop tablespoons of dulce de leche over the brownie batter. drop bigger spoonfuls than in my photo. trust me. the first time i made these there was nowhere near enough of the sweet sweet goodness so i added a whole crapload of dulce de leche the second time. don’t worry the brownie isnt sweet so it’s ok
spread remaining brownie batter on top. and maybe a couple more spoons of dulce de leche on top. i tried to ‘swirl’ mine with the brownie batter but for some reason it didnt look that pretty hmm anywhos bake 35-45mins until centre feels just slightly firm
and stack em for brownie pyramid awesomeness!
