Easy chocolate brownie with macadamia caramel sauce

easy chocolate brownie with macadamia caramel slice

These sticky, tasty desserts are so irresistible that you will be fighting over the last piece! 

125g unsalted butter
200g cooking chocolate chopped into bits
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup raw caster sugar
1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 180°C.

In a saucepan melt butter and chocolate over a low heat. In a bowl mix the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence lightly and once the butter and chocolate has melted slowly add it to the bowl in small amounts and beat to combine. (Be careful not to add all the chocolate at once as it might cook the eggs). Then add the flour and baking powder to the mix and stir well to combine.

Grease a 20cm x 25cm baking tin and line with baking paper, pour the brownie mix onto the baking paper and smooth out to an even surface. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. (Bake it for less if you like your brownies gooey in the middle!) Once cooked, cool on a wire rack.

    Macadamia caramel


    250g white sugar
    ¼ cup water
    150ml thickened cream
    150g unsalted butter, cubed
    ½ cup macadamias, chopped

    Put the sugar and water in a heavy based pan and heat gently, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Raise the heat and cook without stirring until a rich, deep golden caramel is obtained. (If sugar crystals appear around the edge of the inside of the pan, use a pastry brush and water to brush away so the caramel doesn’t crystalise.) As soon as it starts to turn a deep brown, remove from the heat and pour in the thickened cream little by little and taking care that it doesn’t spit on you. Whisk until the caramel has dissolved into the cream and it stays together nice and thick. Let the caramel cool a little bit, then whisk in the butter a few cubes at a time until the sauce has a nice thick glossy appearance. Stir in the macadamias and cool completely.
    To Serve:
    Cut a square of the Brownie and serve on a plate with a good dollop of the Macadamia Caramel!
