{Caramel Crumb}

Sweet as, this is caramel crumb slice, its gooey and caramelly and the biscuit and crumbs are really soft and delicious, I made it for Jack who loves caramel milkshakes, I remember when I was little my favourite instant pudding flavour was the butterscotch one, so we have similar tastes, it seems both my boys have inherited my sweet tooth or maybe thats just a kid thing, what was your favourite instant pudding flavour?

...the caramel
395g tin of condensed milk
50g butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
pinch of salt

...the crumbs
175g butter, softened
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1½ cups plain flour
½ cup rolled oats

Put the condensed milk, butter and golden syrup into a small saucepan and stir over a low heat for five minutes until the mixture becomes thick and golden. Add the pinch of salt and let it cool.

Preheat the oven to 180. Grease and line the base of a slice tin around 23cm x 23cm with baking paper.

In a mixer (or by hand) cream the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the flour and oats and mix it so it comes together like a crumble. Press 3/4 of the mixture over the base of the prepared tin, dip your fingers into flour to help. Pour over the cooled caramel and spread it out evenly then scatter over the remaining crumble mixture.

Bake for 30–35 minutes until golden. Cool in the tin for 10–15 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool. Cut it into small squares.


  1. Banana! I love pretty much anything with artificial banana flavour but don't like actualy bananas. Random Rhiannon fact of the day.
    I often feel very sorry for myself when it comes to slice. I'm not good with dairy and can eat small amounts in baking etc, but sweetened condensed milk is like my cryptonite. Shame it seems to be in all the yummiest sounding slices!

  2. I don't eat bananas either but love banana milk !!!

  3. Hi there, thanks so much for visiting my blog, and even better intoducing me to yours, I love it! Def going to make those crackers (with the cheese), and the devilled sausages (to banish from memory once and for all the Maggi version....), and the lime bars, and on and and on.....we must have similar taste in food, loads of lovely reading for me:)

  4. I just put a tray of tan square into the oven but now I am wishing I made caramel crumb! Love the idea of oats & caramel together.
