Chocolate concrete with caramel sauce
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 12
- 175g plain flour
- 50g ground almonds
- 60g cocoa
- 115g golden caster sugar
- 145g butter , softened, plus extra for the tin
- demerara sugar , for sprinkling over
- 4 tbsp caramel
- 50ml single cream
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Put the flour, almonds, cocoa, caster sugar and a large pinch of salt into a food processor and whizz briefly. Add the butter and whizz until the mixture resembles damp sand.
- STEP 2
Generously butter the base and sides of a small (15 x 25cm) baking tin. Tip the mixture into the tin and press it down. Bake for 30 mins. Remove from the oven, sprinkle over some demerara sugar and cut into squares using a sharp knife while still it’s soft.
- STEP 3
Meanwhile, heat the caramel and cream together in a pan. Serve the concrete warm with the caramel sauce. You can cool any leftovers and eat them cold – they will harden like shortbread.
