Salted Caramel & Guiness Brownies.


For the Brownies
85 g butter, cut into small pieces
225 g dark chocolate, chopped
100 g granulated sugar
110 g dark brown sugar
3 large eggs
130 g plain flour, sifted
70 g cocoa powder, sifted
1/4 tsp finesea salt
300 ml Guinness
150 g chocolate chips

For the Salted Caramel topping
110 g butter, cut into small pieces
220 g dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp finesea salt
250 g icing sugar, sifted
3 tbsp double cream
1/2 tsp vanilla paste
finesea salt, to decorate


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees/gas 4. Line a 24cm x 33cm baking tray with greaseproof paper.

2. For the brownies: Melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan over medium-low heat. When melted, stir in granulated sugar and brown sugar until combined. Remove from heat.

3. Transfer chocolate mixture to a large bowl or food processor set with a paddle attachment, and add eggs one at a time, making sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.

4. In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa and salt together. Add a little of the Guinness to the chocolate batter, alternating with a little of the flour mixture as you go until it’s all combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Don’t worry if the mixture looks quite liquid at this point – it will set!

5. Pour mixture into lined tray. Bake for 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool on rack.

6. For the salted caramel topping: In a medium saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar together. The mixture should start to bubble and thicken slightly. Keep stirring over the heat for 2 minutes, taking care the caramel doesn’t catch on the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat, stir in salt and leave to cool.

7. Blend icing sugar, cream and vanilla in a food processer until it comes together into a paste. Slowly add the cooled caramel, beating on low speed until thoroughly combined.

8. Pour caramel topping over cooled brownies and tilt pan until it covers the surface entirely. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and leave caramel to set before cutting.

Having just made these, they are terrible news for my hipsas I've scoffed 2 already. Salted Caramel is my new best friend. YUMMMMMMMMMM

Yes the other side to cooking, the tasting. I am very parital to warm out of the oven food. Brownies especially. Interestiing the additons of Guiness. I've used stout before in a chocolate pudding. So am going to try this guiness brownie recipe out.
