Butterscotch Squares

These are delightfully chewy, sweet squares of goodness. Super simple to make and super delicious to eat!

Recipe adapted from: Husbands That Cook
Ingredients - 20cm (8 inch) square baking tin
125g butter
200g dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 large egg
75g flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1. Preheat the oven to 175C (350F).

2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.

3. Add the brown sugar and stir; cook until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer for a minute. Then remove the saucepan from the heat, stir the vanilla in, and allow the mixture to cool down for about 10 minutes.

4. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg to break up the yolk then whisk a spoonful of the brown sugar mixture in; then add the rest of the brown sugar mixture and stir until combined.

5. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and stir gently until combined.

6. Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper and pour the batter in.

7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the edges look slightly browned and crispy.

8. While still warm, cut into squares. When they cool down more, the chewiness gets much more intense!
