HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
HOW TO MAKE SEA SALTED CARAMEL BROWNIES
- First, preheat the oven to 190°C, fan oven 170°C, Gas Mark 5. Line a 23cm square baking tin with baking paper.
- Over a very low heat, gently melt the butter and chocolate, stirring occasionally. Cool for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl until pale and fluffy. Do this with an electric whisk on full speed for about 5 minutes.
- Next, add the yogurt and vanilla, then pour in the melted butter and chocolate and mix gently until combined.
- Sift the flour and cocoa powder together. Fold into the chocolate mixture with a pinch of sea salt, using a large metal spoon. Pour into the prepared tin.
- Bake for 20 minutes and check with a skewer - it should come out clean. If not, bake for another 5 minutes. Cool in the tin for half an hour on a wire rack.
- For the topping, melt the butter, Tate & Lyle Soft Dark Soft Brown Sugar and Lyle’s Golden Syrup in a saucepan over a gentle heat, then boil steadily for exactly 1 minute. Cool for 1-2 minutes, then pour over the brownies and sprinkle with sea salt flakes. Leave to cool before cutting into 9 squares.

- Keep an eye on your brownies as they bake, too long in the oven and they’ll lose their gooey, squidgy quality.
- Make sure your brownies have completely cooled before attempting to cut them into squares so that you get a clean slice without any extra mess.
