I love brownies so much, so I thought I would share my recipe with you. Brownies are so quick and easy to make, you’ll be able to smell it baking in your oven before you know it. This recipe has some sentimental value to me, it’s one of the recipes I used to make all the time when I had my first chef job- it was very popular with all the customers! You can make the brownie and eat it as a treat, or serve it as a dessert with ice cream or custard- I like to do a bit of both!
I hope you will enjoy this recipe and that you will give it a go!
Before you get started, you will need one 20cm square tin lined with greaseproof paper. This recipe makes 9 portions.
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Add roughly 4cm of water into a medium-sized saucepan and bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Place the chocolate (broken into chunks) and butter (cut into small cubes) into a bowl, and place on top of the pan to melt the two together. Make sure you stir occasionally so the chocolate doesn’t burn
- Meanwhile, whisk together the sugar and eggs until well combined
- Sift together the flour and cocoa
- Once the chocolate mixture has 100% melted, take off the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Slowly drizzle the chocolate into the egg mixture, stir vigorously as you go. Once it is well combined, gently fold in the flour and cocoa
- Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth out with a spatula
- Place the brownie into the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting into 9 portions- enjoy!
