I have spent the best part of the afternoon in the kitchen puttering around and making stuff. Honestly, I love Saturday afternoons spent in the kitchen with no real plans just a clean slate. That was my afternoon. Husband at work, son out to a party, daughter studying, dog at my feet and the cat on the counter. Of course she is on the counter. So, the ideal "me time" afternoon.
I thought that it has been a while since I have made a proper dessert. Sure, some cookies and muffins along the way, but not a real dessert to dive into. So, today with not much on the plate, I though why not make a dessert. Chocolate came to mind, well because it just always does. I combined a few of my brownie recipes and came up with this delicious Torte. Easy to make and even easier to eat! Don't miss out on the chocolate sauce because it brings it to a whole other level. Ice cream.......might even bring to somewhere else!
Note: I used condensed milk in this recipe and simmered it until it turned into dulce de leche. You can easily use the bought dulce de leche if you have it in your local supermarket.
If you love chocolate, brownies, dulce de leche....well, you will love this dessert. Utterly melt in your mouth brownie torte and it topped off with chocolate sauce because there is no such thing as too much chocolate.
This chocolate sauce will harden as it sits for a while. To reheat, simply put it in a saucepan set over low heat for a couple of minutes. Be careful not to over heat it, or it will split and curdle.
Dulce de Leche Brownie Torte
Serves 12 / Prep time: 20 minutes / Cook time: 45 minutes
For the torte:
1 Can condensed milk
1 Cup/225 grams butter
5 oz dark chocolate, roughly chopped
3/4 Cup/150 grams sugar
1 Cup/125 grams flour
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1/2 Cup/65 grams walnuts, roughly chopped
For the chocolate sauce:
1/3 Cup/80 ml heavy cream
1 Tablespoon golden syrup
4 oz dark chocolate
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line and grease a 10 inch tart pan with removable sides.
In a heat proof bowl placed over a simmering pot of water, add the condensed milk. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes until it thickens and becomes a light caramel colour. Remove from heat.
In a clean saucepan set over medium heat, add the chocolate and butter. Stir until melted and remove from heat to cool.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar and vanilla on high speed for about 2 minutes. Mix in chocolate mixture until combined and stir in flour and salt. Stir until just combined. Pour into prepared pan and smooth it out so it is even. drizzle over the dulce de leche and top with chopped walnuts. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out with just a few crumbs. Remove from oven and leave on a wire rack to cool.
Make the chocolate sauce by adding the cream to a saucepan set over medium to high heat. Bring to a boil whisk in the golden syrup. Remove from heat and add chopped chocolate. Stir until melted and set aside.
Serve in slices topped with the chocolate sauce.
