Millionaire shortbread

You will need..

For the base:

225g gluten free plain flour (I used doves farm)

70g caster sugar

160g dairy free butter (I used Vitalife)

1 tsp vanilla extract

For the caramel:

70g dairy free butter (I used Vitalife)

150g granulated sugar

150g golden syrup

1 tsp vanilla

200ml dairy free soya cream (I used alpro long life)

For the chocolate: 

200g dairy free chocolate (I used Moo free milk chocolate)

Method: 

  1. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tray. Pre heat your oven to 180 °C.
  2. Make your shortbread mixture by adding the flour and butter to a blender and pulsing until the mixture resembled breadcrumbs (This can be done by hand if you do not have a food processor).
  3. Add the caster sugar and pulse again until fully combined.
  4. Press the mixture firmly into your baking tray and prick with a fork.
  5. Cook for between 30-40 minutes in the oven, or until golden brown.
  6. Once cooked, leave to cool on a wire wrack and make your caramel.
  7. To make your caramel, combine your butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan and heat on a medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.
  8. Once dissolved, turn the heat up slightly and add your soya cream and vanilla extract. Stir continuously! The mixture will boil, turn the heat down if needed.
  9. Keep stirring your caramel mixture to ensure that it does not burn. This will take around 30 minutes.
  10. Once the mixture resembles a sticky caramel that is still pourable, take off the hob and immediately pour on top of the shortbread. Leave to cool.
  11. Once cool, melt your dairy free chocolate over hot water on the hob and pour on top of the caramel. Leave to set in the fridge, ideally over night or for a couple of hours.
