Ingredients

Brownies

  • 200g butter, melted
  • 100g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 100g milk chocolate, chopped
  • 80g plain flour
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 200g dark brown sugar
  • 80g caster sugar

Soy caramel sauce

  • 300g caster sugar
  • 50ml water
  • 150ml whole milk
  • 150ml single cream
  • 30ml Kikkoman soy sauce

Method

Place the chocolate into a bowl, pour the hot melted butter over and stir. Leave to melt for a few minutes, stirring occasionally to redistribute heat.

Heat the oven to 175°C. Cream the sugars and eggs with an electric mixer, until the mixture is pale, light, and ribbony. Stir in the chocolate and butter mixture, then sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and cinnamon. Fold together until smooth and well combined, but do not over mix.

Line a baking tin with lightly greased baking paper and pour in the batter, smoothing the top with a spatula. Bake for about 25 minutes, then check the consistency if the middle of the brownie batter still wobbles when shaken, keep cooking in 5 minute intervals until the batter is solid and a thin crust is forming on the top and sides of the brownies. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.

While the brownies are cooling, heat the milk and cream together in a saucepan until simmering. Place the caster sugar and water in another saucepan and cook on a medium heat. When the sugar has dissolved, turn up the heat and avoid stirring to prevent crystallization. As soon as the sugar turns a rich golden amber, quickly bring the cream and milk to a boil and pour into the sugar, whisking continuously to combine. Be careful because the caramel will foam up dramatically. Remove the caramel from heat and stir in the soy sauce. Leave to cool slightly to allow the mixture to thicken.

To serve, spoon some of the warm soy caramel on top of a brownie. Also delicious with a scoop of vanilla, caramel, honeycomb, or praline ice cream.
