Serves: 15
  • 280g (or 1¼ cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 200g (or 1 cup) granulated sugar
  • 120g (or ½ cup + 2 teaspoons, packed) light brown sugar
  • 80g (or ¼ cup) glucose or corn syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 125g (or 1 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 120g (or 1 cup) Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon table salt
  • 240ml (or 1 cup) homemade or storebought dulce de leche
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt salt
  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 175°C/350°F (standard oven setting). Butter a 29x19-cm/11x7-inch brownie pan and line the bottom and long sides of the pan with baking parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter until creamy and lightened in color, about 1 minute. Add sugars, glucose and vanilla and mix until incorporated. At the eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition until incorporated.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder and table salt and add to the butter mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Once the batter looks somewhat incorporated, mix for about 30 seconds until the batter is smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared brownie pan. Dollop spoonfuls of dulce de leche onto the batter and use a knife to swirl the two together.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, then sprinkle over the sea salt. Bake for another 15 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature.
  6. Cut and serve as desired, with ice cream, cold from the fridge or with another sprinkling of salt.
