I made these brownies last year for the first time after trying out a number of recipes that weren’t too good. I found the recipe on taste.com.au – one of my favourite websites.
My husband loves these Brownies and so BG and I made them for his birthday (a day late). They are pretty easy to make although there are a few steps that I wouldn’t recommend kids do as it involves heat and steam but they can always mix in the bowl and lick the spoon!
Here’s BG helping me stir the mixture… sort of…
125g butter, chopped
200g brown sugar
125g dark chocolate, chopped
50g plain flour
35g cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Grease a 18cm x 28cm slice tin with extra melted butter and then line it with baking paper (the butter helps the baking paper stick flat).
3. Melt butter, brown sugar and chocolate in a double boiler (for best results) until well combined.
4. Remove from heat and beat in the eggs (quickly or they’ll cook) using a wooden spoon.
5. Sift together the cocoa, flour, and baking powder into the chocolate mixture and stir until well combined.
6. Add walnuts if you are using them and stir until evenly distributed.
7. Pour mixture into the greased and lined baking tin and bake for 35-40 minutes or until firm and a few crumbs cling to a skewer when inserted into the centre.
8. Serve hot or cold, with or without ice cream.
