Maple Crackling Brownies - Makes 12
Bacon brownies have become a bit of a thing, and so we thought, why not try some with crackling? And we think the sweet salty combo in these ultra-rich brownies really works. If you’re a bit scared of the idea of crackling in brownies, then just scatter less of it over the top.
- 225g unsalted butter, plus extra to grease
- 4 large eggs
- 100g dark cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 250g caster sugar
- 150g light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 175g plain flour
- 350g dark chocolate chips
- 30g Snaffling Pig Maple Crackling, crushed
Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 23 x 33cm tin. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, cocoa, baking powder and vanilla for about 5 minutes with an electric hand whisk.
In a medium pan over a low heat, melt the butter with the sugars and maple syrup, until most of the sugar is dissolved.
Stir the butter mixture into the egg mixture, then stir in the flour, followed by the chocolate chips. Transfer to the prepared tin, and scatter over the crushed crackling.
Bake the brownies for 30 minutes, or until a crust has formed and the centre of the brownies wobbles slightly when you shake the tin. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut when cold.
