It’s that time again... for the recipe of the month. Yippee!

As you can see from previous months’ recipes, we’re hardcore sweet-tooths here at IJLI Towers.

So far, we’ve covered banana egg pancakes, fudgy brownies and last month, it was salted caramel millionaire’s shortbread.

And this week? It’s Caramel Mud Pie, courtesy of our Digital Marketing Manager, Paul Sheridan.

Love sweet treats gooey and chocolatey? This is the perfect pud for you. A rich chocolate dessert oozing with a layer of salted caramel and a crunchy topping of peanut brittle. It’s ideal for entertaining guests with and is a wonderful alternative to a more spongy chocolate cake.

 

Caramel Mud Pies

 

INGREDIENTS

 

- 125g unsalted butter

- 100g white chocolate

- 150g brown sugar

- 90g golden syrup

- 160ml milk

- 150g plain flour

- 50g self-raising flour

INSTRUCTIONS

 

1. Pre-heat oven to 170 °C / 160 °C fan

3. Once cooled, whisk the sifted flour into the chocolate mix and then add the egg. Note: Makes an incredibly runny mixture so it’s a good idea to pour it into a jug before completing step 4

5. Decorate as desired

 

Optional – you could also add a few handfuls of chocolate chips into the mixture for extra yumminess.
