If you are like me and never have heavy cream, here is how to make it.
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
Combine slowly, whisk.
If the butter clumps in the milk. Don’t fret, just microwave it for 5 or 10 seconds.
It will melt again and combine properly.
Ta-da! Heavy cream!
Now back to the caramel glaze.
Add the sugar to a pan.
Add the water.
Bring to a boil. It will look like the above photo. It is OK if it bubbles.
You will stare at the bubbling sugar for about 10 minutes. Stir frequently.
When it browns into a light amber color, remove from heat.
Add butter and stir.
Slowly add heavy cream. It will foam up, don’t be alarmed.
Put aside to let it sit and cool.
Remove the brownie from the pan and slice in to servings.
Combine remaining evaporated milk, flour, salt and egg yolks in a medium bowl.
Heat milk (non evaporated) in a small sauce pan over medium head until tiny bubbles form around the edges.
Watch the temperature, milk burns easily.
Combine the flour mixture into the brown sugar mixture and stir.
Slowly, add the hot milk to the brown sugar and flour mixture, whisk.
Return to medium heat for 12 minutes – until it thickens to pudding consistency.
Tip: Keep the heat steady, it will be liquid until minute 10 that BAM! thick.
Remove from heat, add vanilla.
