Butterscotch Walnut Cake / Squares

Lets not talk too much cos me talking makes me get into details and me talking details is not wat the post is about. The post should be and is about my new found love... All these days, it has been chocolate, chocolate and chocolate (always). Anything dessert should have chocolate in it... Cakes, candies, icecreams, puddings ~ name it, I always prefer the chocolate version. Until I made these butterscotch walnut squares for the kid's monthly bake.

One bite and I would say I got addicted to the flavor, totally. What can go wrong when it is butter and brown sugar.. it is a match made in heaven. The crunch from the walnuts complimented the flavor perfectly. On the whole, a treat to any one who loves caramel flavor in cakes. And if you are that person who wants to make an occasional flavor change in their cakes, then I would say this is your cup of tea.

Okay, now on to why I made this?? I made it to keep up with the tradition of baking something on the 22nd of every month to celebrate our prince's arrival. I am not gonna leave that behind now that his first birthday is over. If not a cake, I am planning to make atleast something sweet on the 22nd. A dessert, a brownie, a cookie or a payasam ~ anything that has sugar in it. So this month I made these Butterscotch Walnut Squares and it was a winner with everyone.

~*What U Need*~
Makes - 16 squares
Butter - 1/4 cup
Demerera Sugar - 1/4 cup
Brown sugar - 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup
Egg - 1
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp(I used salted butter)
Walnuts - 1/4 cup
Butterscotch chips/Caramel chips - 1/4 cup

How I Made it:
Melt the butter, remove pan from heat and stir in the sugar.

Once cooled, whisk in the egg, vanilla extract and beat till mixed. Sieve together the flour, baking powder and salt.

Fold the dry into the wet ingredients. Add the butterscotch chips and walnuts and combine gently. Pour the batter into a greased 8” square tin and smoothen the top. Bake at 190C in a preheated oven for 20-25 mins till golden and done. Cool in the tin, remove and cut into squares.

Serve with love!!!
** My Notes:
** You could substitute the butterscotch chips for dark chocolate/ white chocolate chips.
** I didnt have a square tin and hence used my smaller rectangle pan. So my squares are a bit thicker, I would say too thicker.
** DONOT overbake the squares as they tend to become dry and crumble-y. Keep an eye after the 20th min.
** I used 1/4 cup of brown sugar, you could increase it to 1/2 cup if you need ur bars to be too sweet.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
