Hazelnut Caramel Slice

22 Apr

As I am now working in a Café in Marylebone, I have a lot of different cakes to cook and recipies to share with you… but less time to put them on my blog!

I’ll start with this one that is crazy inb term of calories but also in term of taste….

You’ll need a 20 * 30 slice pan lined with baking parchment.

Base

  • 200g chopped butter
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 440g brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 225g flour

Caramel Filling

  • 180g butter
  • 110g sugar
  • 2tsp golden syrup
  • 180ml concentrated milk
  • 175g roughly chopped hazelnut

For the base

Melt the butter and the cocoa powder in a pan until you obtain a uniform paste.

Add the sugar and incorporate then remove from the fire.

Add vanilla, beaten eggs and flour and pour the mixture in the pan.

Cook about 20 min at 180°.

Once cooked, let it cool down in the pan.

The filling

In a pan, melt the butter, sugar, syrup and condensated milk for about 10 minutes until you obtain a gold to dark colour.

Stir in the hazelnuts and pour the mixture on top of the cooked base.

Let it cool down.

The top

  • 200g of dark chocolate
  • 1tsp oil

In a bain-marie, melt dark chocolate and oil and spread it on top of the slice. Use a flat spatula to spread it all over the slice.

Let it cool down, remove from the pan and cut it in slices, squares or whatever shapes you want.
