These are really yummy. I call them my yummy chocolate brownies, simply because anyone who tastes it, cant help but want more. This is a fool proof recipe.Even my little 11 year old sister has mastered this recipe. So get those aprons on, and start baking. You will not be disappointed :)
- 250g unsalted butter
- 200g dark chocolate broken up
- 80g cocoa powder, sifted
- 65g plain flour, sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 360g caster sugar
- 4 large eggs
Start off by preheating your oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Line a square baking tin (about 25cm) with greaseproof paper
Melt the butter and chocolate and mix until smooth. I know most recipes tell you to melt these in a large bowl over simmering water, but I do it the lazy way, and I simply stick it all in the microwave.
If there is a short cut, i will ALWAYS take it !!
So, in a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar, then add this to the chocolate mixture. Stir everything together.
Beat the eggs in one at a time and mix in until you have a silky consistency.
Pour your brownie mix into the baking tray, and place in the oven for around 25 minutes.
DO NOT over cook.. The beauty of a brownie, is that unlike cakes, they should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle.
These can be eaten hot, cold or served with ice cream. Whatever way you decide to eat it, you will be sure to lick your fingers. Bon apetit :)
