Ingredients

  • 100g pecan nuts, roughly chopped
  • 50g pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 100g dark chocolate chunks or chips
  • 175g soft unsalted butter, plus extra, for greasing
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 1 x 260g jar salted caramel sauce, chilled in the fridge

Step by step

Get ahead
The traybake keeps in an airtight container for up to 5 days, or can be frozen.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm x 30cm baking tin. Combine the nuts and chocolate in a bowl, and set aside.
  2. Put the butter, sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder, cocoa, a small pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons of boiling water in a big bowl, then whisk together for 2 minutes until creamy. Add half the nut mix and fold it in. Pour into the prepared tin and smooth the surface.
  3. Set aside 2 tablespoons of caramel sauce. Using the back of a spoon, make small dents in the mix and fill them with teaspoonfuls of chilled caramel sauce. Sprinkle the rest of the nut mix over the cake. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean (avoiding the pockets of caramel).
  4. Once out of the oven, leave it in the tin to cool for 10 minutes before carefully removing to a wire rack, using the paper to lift it. Warm the remaining caramel sauce until runny, then drizzle on top. Cut it into squares when cool.
