So with Easter been and gone, you may have a lot of chocolate left on your hands, so why not try these lush chocolate brownies??
Aria absolutely loves making these, we probably make these atleast once a week at her request and she loves doing all of the components herself, which can get quite messy but we love it all the same. We halve the recipe so that we make little brownie bites that she can have as a little reward or with her lunch as her treat. Also perfect for picnics now that we’re getting into the better weather and day trips, so why not give it whirl?
(I sound waaay too chipper about these brownies, but honestly, they’re b e a u t i f u l)
200 g unsalted butter
200g dark chocolate
200g milk chocolate
250 g brown sugar
50 g self-raising flour
(You can also add orange peel, marshmallows or nuts)
– Preheat the oven to 190C (170C fan). Cover your baking tin with baking paper.
– Melt the chocolate and butter over a water bath. Stir in the mixture once in a while until it has melted together.
– Whisk the eggs in a bowl until they are pale and fluffy, but not too stiff. Add sugar and whisk until it foams up.
– Carefully fold in the chocolate mixture. Shift the flour into the batter and fold gently. Fold gently until the batter is smooth.
– Pour the batter into the tin and bake it for 35 – 40 minutes if you like it gooey. If you like it a bit firmer, then the oven off after the 40 minutes but leave the brownie in for a bit longer, keep checking but remember it’ll firm up as it cools.
– Let the cake cool off in the tin and cut it into the desired number of pieces!
If you become as addicted to these chocolate brownies, please don’t blame me! I’m just sharing the yummy chocolate goodness!
