Chocolate Crumble Squares

This recipe for chocolate crumble squares originally came from a good friend of my mom. She brought these cake squares to an event, I gave them a try, and I couldn’t get them out of my head ever since. A long time has passed since that day, and my mom’s friend shared the recipe with her, but alas… Everything was specified in measuring cups and a pan size that I do not own. So, I took the initiative of making this recipe more precise by converting it to gram measurements and added a few more adjustments. What can I say… It’s one of those old days recipe, when everything was so simple and delicious where you simply can’t go wrong.

  2. Knead with your hands until you get a smooth and workable dough.
  3. Divide the dough into 2 parts 131g (will be used for the bottom part) and 197g (for the crumbles).
  4. Shape both parts into rough rectangles, wrap them with plastic wrap and freeze for 1.5-2 hours while working on the filling.
  5. After frozen, grate each part with a grater.

Filling:

  1. In a saucepan, combine the milk, chocolate, cocoa powder and salt. Cook on medium-low heat until melted and combined. Let cool down.
  2. Once cooled, add in the egg yolks, rum and vanilla, and mix well.
  3. Whip the egg whites and sugar to medium peaks and fold into the chocolate mixture.

Assembly and Baking:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C (fan mode off), placing a baking rack at the lowest shelf in the oven.
  2. Scatter the bottom part grated dough over the bottom of a lined baking pan. Push with your hand so that they are sealed into a flat dough that extends to all corners of the pan.
  3. Pour the chocolate filling on top of the bottom dough. Scatter the rest of the crumble dough on top of the chocolate mixture.
  4. Bake for 35 minutes.
  5. Cool over a cooling rack, and cut into squares

Pro Tip: For a more aesthetic presentation, bake the cake for 20 minutes so that the chocolate base sets, scatter the crumble toppings and return to the oven for 15 minutes.
