Macadamia Caramel Slice

这个caramel slice是我家老公很爱的。就连生日没有要求生日蛋糕就是说要吃这个slice。但是我还是做了生日蛋糕 (嘻嘻,老婆很坏)。那天他要和朋友出海钓鱼问我可以给他做这个和他朋友分享吗?好啦好啦。。只要不是他一个人独吞这个两罐炼奶做成的甜点,我可以烤炉考虑。



Macadamia Caramel Slice

225g plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
60g desiccated coconut
90g brown sugar
190g unsalted butter, melted

caramel filling
115g golden syrup
125g unsalted butter, chopped
2 x 395g cans sweetened condensed milk
100g macadamia (roasted)
pinch of salt (optional)

chocolate topping
300g dark chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoon vegetable oil


1.    Preheat oven to 180°C.  

2.    Place the flour, coconut, sugar and butter in a bowl and mix to combine. Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture into the base of a lightly greased 25cm x 25cm tin lined with non-stick baking paper and bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden.

3.    Reduce the oven temperature to 160°C.

4.    To make the caramel filling, place the golden syrup, butter and condensed milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until the butter is melted and cook, whisking frequently, for 7–8 minutes or until the mixture has thickened slightly.

5.    Pour the caramel over the cooked base, spread evenly with a palette knife. Press macadamia nuts in to the caramel layer and bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden.

6.    Cool slightly and refrigerate until cold.

7.    To make the chocolate topping, place the chocolate and oil in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, and stir until melted and smooth. Pour over the caramel mixture and spread evenly.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until firm. Cut into squares to serve.
