Sea Salt Treacle Brownies

By Persephone at

These are super dense fudgy brownies; you’ll definitely want to add the sea salt to cut through the richness. These are the sort of brownies that are best made on a Saturday afternoon and eaten whilst curling up to read, armed with a large pot of tea.



  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp black treacle
  • 275g caster sugar
  • 90g plain flour
  • 75g cocoa powder
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp flaky sea salt


Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a pan for the brownies.

Melt the butter over a low heat in a large saucepan. Whisk in the treacle and sugar and then set aside for a moment.

In another bowl, sieve together the flour and cocoa.

Return to the melted butter and beat in each egg individually before folding in the flour.

Pour the mixture into the lined pan, sprinkle over the sea salt and bake for 25-35 minutes.

The top should be just dried out but the mixture underneath still slightly damp, as the brownies will set a little more as they cool. Once they’re done, let the brownies cool in the pan for 30 minutes before removing and cutting into squares.
