Hi everyone,

I make a caramel slice once a week that works really well. Last week it was a complete disaster, had never turned out like this before.

The caramel layer almost looked like it had puffed up in the oven then sank down again, looked cracked, greasy and horrible.
I made it again today, taking extra care with the measurements, recipe etc. however had the same problem, with a rising, horrible caramel layer.

I can not think of anything I am doing differently as to why it is turning out so different to the many past times i have made it.

Has anyone else ever had this problem?

Thanks!
