Fudgy Caramel Brownies

These brownies are incredibly fudgy and just like those Duncan Hines brownies we all ate as kids. I add a layer of caramel in the middle of the batter before baking and this gives the brownies an even moister texture and richer flavor.

The flavor of caramel is very subtle as it has been baked into the brownie. If you want a brownie that screams caramel, simply drizzle the baked brownies with some more caramel. Yum.


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup store-bought caramel sauce


Preheat your oven to 325˚F. Butter and line a 9-inch baking tin.

In the bowl of a stand mixer or using an electric hand mixer, beat together the butter, oil and sugar until light in color, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

In a medium sized bowl, sieve together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.

Slowly and carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until the ingredients are evenly combined. Pour half of the batter into your baking tin. Drizzle the caramel all over the batter. Pour in the remaining half of brownie batter, carefully spreading it so you completely cover the caramel. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool the brownie in the baking tin for at least 15 minutes and then lift out and leave to cool on a wire rack.
