Dulce-de-Leche Brownies

November 8, 2011

Brownies and ice cream top the chart for me in terms of my favorite dessert.  So when I saw this recipe I knew I was trouble!  This recipe comes from Sabeen author of The Baked Been.  When you get a chance go and check out her blog.  It is a nice clean blog which I love.  She has lots of fun recipes that you are sure to like.  For now she leaves us with this scrumptious recipe.


Salted Dulce-de-Leche Brownies
Adapted from Apt. 2B Baking Co.
For the brownies, you'll need:

  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 11 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup [2 sticks] unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 5 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
For the filling, you'll need
  • 1 14-oz can dulce de leche
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fleur de sel, to top

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line and grease a 9x13-inch pan.

Put the chocolate and butter in the bowl of a double boiler set over simmering water and stir occasionally until chocolate and butter are melted. Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl of an electric mixer. Add in the eggs and whisk on medium speed until incorporated. Add in both sugars and vanilla. Gradually add in flour and salt and mix until just combined.

In a separate bowl, mix dulce de leche and 1 tsp salt until thoroughly combined.

Pour about 2/3 of the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly with a spatula. Gently spread the salted dulce de leche on top of the batter. Pour the remaining batter on top of the dulce de leche and spread evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until set. Sprinkle fleur de sel on top of the baked brownies. Let brownies cool completely before cutting.
