  • 225 gr (vegetable) butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 120 gr dark chocolate
  • 3 eggs
  • 330 gr sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125 gr all-purpose flour
  • 25 gr cocoa powder
  • 100 gr walnuts or hazelnuts or a mix of both


  • 150 gr sugar
  • 2,5 tbsp water
  • 75 gr whipped cream or vegetable cooking cream
  • 50 gr vegetable butter
  • 1 tsp sea ​​salt (flakes) and a little extra for decoration



  • Preheat the over to 180 degrees.
  • Toast the walnuts and/or hazelnuts in a dry pan. Shake them occasionally and turn off the heat when they are slightly colored. Then roughly chop them on a board and set aside.
  • Grease a 20 cm square tin and line with baking paper. Leave two sides free of paper.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate in a bain-marie. Then let it cool down a bit.
  • Separate 1 egg into yolk and egg white.
  • In a bowl with the mixer, beat the two eggs and the egg yolk of the third egg, sugar, salt and vanilla extract until smooth, almost liquid, airy. Mix well.
  • When the chocolate-butter mixture has cooled down, add it to the egg mixture. It must remain light.
  • Then add the flour, the baking powder and cocoa powder and at the end the chopped nuts.
  • Preheat the oven on 180 degrees Celcius
  • Pour into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 40 minutes. The inside remains creamy but should be slightly set. Cook for a few more minutes if necessary.
  • Remove from the oven, let cool, then remove the brownie from the pan with the baking paper and let it cool on a wire rack.


  • Add the sugar and water to a saucepan and cook until golden brown. Stick with it!! If the substance is too light, it has no taste. If it gets too dark, it's bitter.
  • Add the whipped cream/vegetable cream. Be careful as it is very hot and will splash. Stir everything until smooth.
  • Add the butter and sea salt (leave a little to put on top) and stir well. Let the caramel cool, but do not let it get completely cold.
  • Pour the caramel over the brownie on the rack and smooth it out with a palette knife or spoon. It is useful if you place a sheet of baking paper under the grid, so that your entire counter is not covered with caramel. Finally, divide the remaining sea salt flakes over the caramel.
  • Tip! I turn the brownie over before tossing it with the caramel because the bottom is straight and smooth and the top is a little concave in the middle. That gives a nicer result.
