Recipe of the Week: Chocolate Brownies with Dulce de Leche

Emily Dawson

Friday, 2 December 2022

Recipe of the Week with @ems.homecooking will teach you a new dish from around the world. This weeks recipe is one of my own and will teach you the secret to getting that perfect crispy brownie top.

Serves: 12-18

Difficulty: 3/5

Time: 1hr (20 minutes prep, 40-45 minutes cooking time)


A twist on everyone’s favourite baked treat that gives even Beeston Brownies a run for their money, this recipe is one of my own.


The depth and thickness of the mixture means you can bake this one for 40 minutes and you’ll still have a deliciously gooey brownie. The dulce de leche also transforms the crust into a chewy outer shell making this recipe my go-to sweet treat, which is always requested by friends and family.


  • 200g butter

  • 200g dark chocolate

  • 4 large eggs

  • 350g caster sugar

  • 100g plain flour

  • 50g cocoa powder

  • 100g milk chocolate, roughly chopped

  • 2 tbsp dulce de leche




Melt the dark chocolate and butter in a pan over a medium heat, making sure to stir constantly as to not burn the bottom. Once melted, set aside to cool.

Whisk the sugar and eggs together in a separate bowl until the mixture is pale and has doubled in size.

Fold in the cooled chocolate mixture.

Sift and fold the flour and cocoa powder into the mixture.

Add the milk chocolate making sure it is distributed evenly.

Pour the mixture into a 20cm x 24cm tin and spread it evenly across the tin

Using a spoon, swirl the dulce de leche through the top layer in a spiral pattern.

Being a bilingual family (French mother and British father,) living in France I thought your article was extremely interesting . Have you research on bilingualism ? It seems that when the mother is British and the father French and they both live in France their children seem to be more bilingual than when the mother is French and the father is British . This is what we called mother tongue , isn't it ?
