Ingredients

Directions

Place a medium/large sauce pan on medium heat and add water and granulated sugar. (Make sure to use a larger saucepan than you think you need. Mixture will bubble and rise as it cooks).

Stir or whisk the sugar and water mixture until it begins to bubble.

Stop stirring and increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Continue to boil until the sugar and water turn an amber color. (Have the other ingredients prepped at this time, the mixture can burn very quickly).

Remove from heat and stir/whisk in the heavy cream (mixture will bubble and rise quickly).

Add the butter 1 tbsp at a time, then vanilla and Fine Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. Continue to stir/whisk until completely mixed.

Pour mixture and pour into a heat-safe dish and store in the refrigerator for about an hour. The sauce will thicken.

Sprinkle a little Falksalt Natural Sea Salt Flakes on top to taste.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 2 medium eggs

  • 1 cup caster sugar

  • 2/3 cup flour

  • 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

  • A pinch of salt

  • Strawberries (sliced to top)

  • Mint leaves (to top)

  • Whipped Cream (to top)

  • Natural or Lime Falksalt (to top)

Directions

  • Melt the butter and leave to cool slightly

  • Whisk the egg and sugar together until the mixture is light, fluffy and pale

  • Weigh all the dry ingredients and sift them into the egg and sugar mixture. Fold in until everything is incorporated

  • Fold in the melted butter until you are left with a smooth chocolate mixture

  • Pour into a lined cake tin. This recipe fits a normal 8in tin. The cake will not rise, but it will puff up slightly during baking

  • Bake at 350 degrees for around 20 minutes. The exact time can vary, so keep an eye on the cake. A perfect sticky cake is very soft in the middle, but not runny once it has cooled – but almost runny

  • If you press down gently on the cake whilst its baking, the crust should need a bit of pressure to crack. When this happens, the cake is done. Leave to cool in the tin for at least an hour.

  • Once cooled, top with sliced strawberries, mint sprigs, whipped cream, and a sprinkling of Natural or Lime Falksalt.
