Something of a phenomenon…

Today I am sharing with you something of a phenomenon…certainly amongst friends and family. This is a recipe I stumbled across on Pinterest and tried out for desert one day when my mum and sisters came to visit. Little did I know just how amazing and delicious this would turn out and how in demand it would become! I am receiving requests from everyone I know to make them a batch and as for Mr B, well, let’s just say his waistline isn’t getting any smaller…

Salted Caramel Butter Bake

Now, I am aware that this is not a dessert or biscuit that looks like anything extraordinary, however when you take a bite you realise just how wonderfully yummy it is! The best bit is that it’s super simple to make and can be eaten warm as a dessert (maybe with cream or custard) or it can be eaten cold as a tray-bake biscuit! Win-win!!

Ingredients:

  • 450g butter
  • 130g caster sugar
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 520g self-raising flour
  • 2 bags of wrapped fudge sweets
  • 120ml double cream
  • ‘lumpy’ salt (sea-salt)

Method:

  • Beat the butter and sugars together until soft and creamy
  • Add the vanilla extract and beat again
  • Slowly add the flour, a few spoonfuls at a time, mixing together as you do.
  • Once you have added all the flour you should have a crumbly dough.
  • Press around half the dough into a greased baking tin. Place the rest of the dough in the fridge.
  • Bake in a medium oven for around 20 minutes
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool
  • Unwrap the fudge sweets and melt in the microwave
  • Add the cream and stir together. Re-warm in the microwave if the fudge is beginning to harden again.
  • Pour the fudge mixture on top of the cooked base (still in the baking tin)
  • Sprinkle with the ‘lumpy’ salt
  • Remove the remaining dough mixture from the fridge and crumble on top of the fudge.
  • Return to the oven and bake for around 20 minutes until golden brown, but still soft.
