Salted Caramel Slice Recipe
I wish I had’ve known before I made this just how popular it was going to be. We had our second annual trivia night a few weeks ago and last year I took a cake so I put my hand up again to bring something sweet this year as well. Well I should’ve doubled the recipe because they absolutely got devoured.
Super, super easy and OMG addictive. Just try and stop eating it after one bite. There’s just something magic about putting a few sea salt flakes on top of something super sweet. When it hits your tongue your mouth is momentarily confused and then your brain goes yes – this combination is fantastic. Give me more.
The base is just 3 ingredients and is made even easier by using your food processor to whiz the ingredients together. I was concerned by how dry it was when I pressed it into the tray but not to worry, it all baked together beautifully.
Then the topping is butter, brown sugar, golden syrup, sweetened condensed milk and a dash of gelatine to help it set. Pour it on and pop it in the fridge. Wait until it’s set before you sprinkle a bit of sea salt on top and then watch it disappear!
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 125g butter
- 125 butter, extra
- 1/4 cup golden syrup
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp gelatine
- 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
- sea salt flakes
- Pre-heat oven to 170C/150C fan-forced/325F.
- Line an 18 x 28cm baking tray with baking paper.
- Combine flour, icing sugar and butter together in a food processor until it resembles fine breadcrumbs (it will be quite dry). Press into prepared tray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until slightly golden.
- Meanwhile in a medium saucepan over medium heat combine the extra butter, golden syrup sugar, gelatine and condensed milk until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Cook, continually stirring for 5 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Pour over biscuit base and refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.
- Sprinkle over sea salt flakes to taste.
- Cut into squares.
