Dulce de leche brownies

This is a  recipe I found on a belgian blog(in Dutch), Baked Louie's, made by a young baking enthusiast named Louie. This fella sure knows how to bake and he's only 16!
 A blog filled with delicious recipes for cakes, cookies and pies off all kind. A blog worth reading!

This recipe is packed with calories but sometimes you just have to ignore them and just indulge ;)

The recipe takes 2 steps; the dulce de leche and the brownies. Start with the dulce de leche.

Dulce de leche:


  • 1 can of condensed milk, 305ml

Put the can, unopened, in a high cooking pot. Submerge in water and bring to a boil. 

Turn the fire lower when the water starts boiling vigorously and let it simmer for about 3 hours. Let the water cool down, take out the can, open it and pour the dulce de leche in a bowl and stirr untill you have a nice creamy texture. 

You can lick your spoon clean but don't be tempted to eat the whole bowl cause this is simply delicious.....



  • Dulche de leche
  • 340gr. dark chocolate, chopped in bits
  • 230gr. unsalted butter
  • 50gr. unsweetened cacao powder
  • 280gr. pastry flour
  • 400gr granulated sugar
  • 100gr. pecan nuts, chopped
  • 6 eggs
Put some aluminium foil in a baking tin(+/- 20x30cm) and grease it up with some oil. 
Preheat the oven on 175°.
Melt the butter in a large pan, add the chocolate and let it melt in the butter. Then add the cacao powder and stirr well. Add the eggs, one by one and keep stirring. Add the sugar, let it melt in the mixture and then finish by adding the flour. Stirr well untill you get a thick mixture and add the chopped pecan's.
Pour half of this mixture in the baking tin and add about 4-5 spoons of dulce de leche, divided over the mixture. Swirl in the dulce de leche with a knife, creating a nice pattern and add in the rest of the mixture and repeat the step with the dulce de leche.

Put in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes.
Let it cool down, cut into pieces and serve! Delish!!!!
