  • 140 g butter melted, plus extra for greasing the baking tin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 350 g brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 g self-raising flour
  • 100 g milk chocolate chips
  • 100 g pecan nuts chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with melted butter. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until lighter in color and a little bit thicker. Add the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Stir well until everything is incorporated.

  2. Add the flour, chocolate chips and some of the pecans, reserving about a small handful for the topping later. Stir in everything just until smooth, but do not overbeat.

  3. Spread the mixture on the greased baking tin and use the back of the spoon to level the surface. Sprinkle the reserved pecan nuts on top and bake for 25-30 minutes. The butterscotch should look set and a toothpick inserted at the center should come out with some moist crumbs.
