Millionaire’s shortbread is a baked classic. This quick recipe was created when I planned to bake a batch for guests, but ran out of time. So I pressed the shortbread base into individual ramekins and served it at the table with hot caramel sauce and melted chocolate, for my guests to create themselves. It was a huge success! I know you are going to love it too.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the shortbread biscuit base

Quantity Ingredient
50g plain flour
1 tablespoon caster sugar
pinch fine sea salt
30g vegan butter

For the caramel sauce

Quantity Ingredient
3 tablespoons soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 rounded tablespoon vegan butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or cinnamon
150ml soya cream

For the chocolate sauce

Quantity Ingredient
200g good-quality very dark chocolate
100ml soya cream

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Start by making the biscuit base. Combine the flour, sugar, and sea salt in a food processor, then add the vegan butter and mix until a dough is formed. Press the dough into 6 ramekins, in a 2cm layer. Bake for 9–10 minutes until pale golden.
  3. While the bases are cooking, make the caramel sauce. Put the sugar, golden syrup, vegan butter, and vanilla extract in a pan. Simmer over a medium heat for 4–5 minutes without stirring. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 1 minute, then whisk in the soya cream. Pour into a jug and keep warm.
  4. For the chocolate sauce, break up the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and blast in the microwave for 20 seconds, stir, then blast for 20 seconds more, or until fully melted. Whisk in the soya cream, then transfer into another jug and keep warm.
  5. Remove the ramekins from the oven and serve immediately for a softer, cakier base, or allow to cool for a few minutes for a firmer base. Serve with the caramel and chocolate sauces and pour both into the ramekins just before enjoying while hot.
