Brownies with dulce de leche

There was supposed to be an introductory post here. Was supposed to be … Cause there is nothing else that needs to be said when a heavenly combo of chocolate and dulce de leche appears. There are some recipes that  need no further advertisement as there are some people who’s recipes are always no-fail showstoppers. This amazing brownie recipe I have found on David Lebovitz blog. I must say it’s an evil place, makes you salivate and crave for goodies but worst of all there is some voodoo magic going on that will shrink all your clothes at a glance. Beware….


115g butter, cut into pieces
170g bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
25g unsweetened cocoa powder
3 large eggs
200g sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
140g flour
optional: 100 g toasted pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 can (around 390g) Dulce de leche

1. Preheat the oven to 175C. Prepare 20cm square pan – grease it well, you can use aluminium foil or baking paper for lining.

2.Melt the butter and add the chocolate pieces. Once everything has melted remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth. Add in the eggs one at a time, stir in the sugar, vanilla and then the flour. Mix in the nuts, if using.

3. Scrape half of the batter into the prepared pan. Drop one-third of the Dulce de Leche over the brownie batter, then drag a knife through to swirl it slightly. Spread the remaining brownie batter over, then drop spoonfuls of the remaining Dulce de Leche in dollops over the top of the brownie batter. Use a knife to swirl the Dulce de Leche slightly.

4. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. INDULGE 😉

  1. Don’t know where you found Dulce de Leche in Finland, but the Asian store in Leppävaara in Espoo sells it 😀 Made my day when I found it! I’ve been thinking of combining it with chocolate in cupcakes…

    Maybe it won’t make it that far, now that I’ve seen your recipe!

    • Hello 🙂 Sometimes Vii Voan – Asian store in Hakaniemi has it. Usually they also sell cans of sweetened condensed milk, so that one (if brave enough 😉 may try to make it at home. I was sooo happy when I saw it there for the first time 😀 Hakaniemi is a heaven for cooks in Finland 😉

  2. You know I am not sure I have ever had dulce de leche. What am I thinking?!! I will need to see if I can find it canned in Vancouver.

    They look so mouthwatering! Plus I definitely think walnuts or pecans would be a great addition as you suggest.

  3. Uwielbiam brownie i czesto pieke swoja klasyczna wersje, ale Twoje wygląda niesamowicie i jak wyczytałam w komentarzu powyzej smakuje obłednie 😉 Zapisuje przepis i zabieram sie do pieczenia 🙂
