I did have some perfectly cut bars of these but my lovely partner took to work before I got to take a photo. So here is a photo of the scraps! Haha Trust me when I say they taste better than they look!
These are a magazine cut out I have had for many many years and always wanted to try. I am unsure where this originally came from. I have tweaked the quantities slightly to reduce the sugar etc and added vanilla as I’m a huge vanilla fan!
These are so yummy and chewy. Somewhere between a chewy biscuit and a dense mudcake. I haven’t tasted anything similar. Very very yum!!!
- 75g butter, cubed
- 180g brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste/essence/extract
- 120g glucose syrup
- 3 egg whites
- 150g plain flour
- 75g self raising flour
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
- Place butter and brown sugar in bowl.
- Blitz on speed 4 until smooth and creamy.
- Keep blades spinning.
- Add vanilla and glucose syrup through the hole in the lid whilst blades are moving until mixed.
- Stop, remove lid and add remaining ingredients.
- Blitz on speed 5 for 20 seconds or until mixed.
- Pour into a slice tin.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
- Let it cool in the tin before turning it out.
- Cut into bars once cooled.
- Sprinkle with icing sugar if desired.
- You must use glucose syrup for these to achieve the chewy result. It is the essential ingredient. I find it in the cake decorating aisle of the supermarket next to choc chips, sprinkles etc.
