This is my first blog post!
I thought I would use this to introduce myself and my next post. I am currently making short films and making cooking tutorials and posting them on YouTube as way to get my work out in the big, wide, world. My dream is to be a successful film maker so why not combine my love for film making with my love for baking and creating? My hope with this website and my tutorials is that I will get my film work out in the world, inspire some of you to bake and share some delicious recipes that I love to make!
I have always loved to bake, but over the course of this year I have been baking non stop and have discovered that it is truly a passion. As I have got more confident in myself and my creations I can now look at recipes differently and see how I can improve them or adapt them. I hope this becomes the same for you as you get more confident in the kitchen.
Now on to my first recipe.
Butterscotch Slice. Look at all that caramel….
I have been making these bars non stop for the past month. I make them and they just….. disappear. Like magic!
I think I must have little Elves in my kitchen with the taste for these bars. That’s what I tell myself anyway….
- 1/2 Cup Butter, Softened (125g)
- 1/4 Cup Caster Sugar (50g)
- 1 and ½ Cups All-Purpose Flour (192g)
- 1 Pinch Salt
- 1 Egg Yolk
- 2 Tbsp. Milk
- 1/2 Cup Butter (125g)
- 2 Tbsp. Caster Sugar
- 2/3 Cup Condensed Milk (204g)
- 3 Tbsp. Golden Syrup
- 3/4 Cup Dark Chocolate (130g)
- 20 g Butter (1 Tbsp.)
- For the Base;
- Grease a shallow 9" tin and preheat oven to 180°C.
- In a food processor, combine the butter, castor sugar and flour and process the mixture by pulsing the machine until the mixture reassembles fine breadcrumbs.
- Add the egg yolk and milk. Process until the mixture forms a dough.
- Press the dough into the base of the tin
- Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Allow it to cool in the tin.
- To make the caramel filling, place all the caramel ingredients into a saucepan and melt over a low heat.
- Once the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved, turn up the heat and slowly bring it to the boil.
- Stir the caramel as it boils for 5 minutes.
- Take it off the heat and allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
- Pour the caramel over the base and spread it evenly.
- Allow this to set while you make the chocolate topping.
- Melt the chocolate and butter in a saucepan (or you can use a microwave).
- Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel and spread until you have a nice even layer.
- Let the chocolate set and then cut into slices.
So that’s all for now. I hope you enjoy my website and follow it as I continue to grow and post new things.
