Caramel Crumble Slice

Caramel Crumble Slice
Everyone always loves this slice, great with afternoon coffee or cut into petite squares for petite fours.  Quick and easy to make, double the recipe if making for crew because its guaranteed to be a hit.
This is one of my favourite slices to have with fresh coffee, whilst sitting with a good magazine at hand.

  1. I followed instructions exactly but the condensed milk layer was very runny. When I put the crumble on top it sunk. It's in the oven now and there seems to be no sign of the crumble topping at all. Any suggestions??

  2. I suggest the time for simmering the caramel wasn't long enough for your element. Simmer the caramel until it changes color and thickens somewhat. Stir it constantly or it'll catch and burn on the bottom of the pot. (because of the high sugar content it will simmer at a low heat but the 5 mins timing starts from when it bubbles in general.)
