Oh no, she didn't! Oh yes...... I DID!
I made brownies! Gooey and yummy but in bite-sized pieces you won't be able to resist! Here's how you make these:
Prep: 15 minutes plus cooling
Cook: 14-18 minutes
115g Unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus extra for greasing
100g Plain chocolate, roughly chopped
140g light Muscovado (soft brown) sugar
1 tspn vanilla extract
55g Plain flour
25g Cocoa powder
40g Pecan or Walnuts, roughly chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 200oC/ 180oC Fan/400oF/ Gas Mark 6. Grease
and line the base and sides of an 18cm/7-inch shallow square cake
2. Put the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl, set the bowl over a
saucepan of gently simmering water and heat until melted. Leave the
mixture to cool slightly.
3. Put the eggs, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl and beat together (with
an electric handheld whisk or by hand) until the mixture starts to turn
frothy. Stir in the chocolate mixture until combined.
4. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the bowl and scatter in the nuts. Stir
together gently, then turn the mixture into the tin and level the surface.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 14 - 18 minutes, or until the crust feels
dry but gives a bit when gently pressed. (If unsure, better to have it
slightly undercooked so it doesn't loose its gooeyness. Another test it to
gently press a nice into natural cracks in the surface and the knife
comes out clean.) Leave in the tin l for 10 minutes before transferring to
a wire rack to cool. Cut into 25 squares (4 lines each way).
Simple yet AMAZE-BALLS! Just made another batch earlier for someone's birthday treats! A tip for melting chocolate and butter is to keep the water level lower than the bottom of the bowl - if it touches the bowl, you may burn the chocolate you're melting.
