The Yummiest Scrummiest Easiest to Bake Brownies : A Recipe


As I said in my Little Notes post, here's the recipe for these fantastic brownies!

What you need:
185g Butter (Room Temp.)
185g Dark Chocolate
50g Milk Chocolate
85g Plain Flour
40g Cocoa powder
3 Large eggs
275g  Castor Sugar

.1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

.2. Sieve the flour and cocoa powder into one bowl. (Because you don't want bits)

.3. Cut the butter and dark chocolate into smallish pieces (the smaller you cut it, the faster it'll melt) and pour into another bowl.
Then fill a saucepan with hot water and place the bowl on top of it for it to melt. Or if you own a microwave *we don't- my dad has a thing against them- something about the waves being bad for your health*
stick it in and just take it out at intervals to stir it.

.4.  After it's all melted and while you're waiting for it to cool, whisk the eggs in a third, bigger bowl till it's a light, fluffy, creamy texture, then gradually add the sugar and whisk some more till the sugar is all gone. *Note; eggs whisked first, then sugar or you'll be there for a while*

.5. Stir the melted chocolate into the eggs, continue stirring until it's fully mixed and it's a dark brown colour. *Have a quick taste.*
Then sieve the flour and cocoa mix in and gently fold it till the ingredients are all combined.

.6. Chop the milk chocolate into small chunks and tip into the mixture. Stir one last time.

.7. Line a medium square tray with a baking sheet and pour in the chocolatey mix.

.8. Pop it into the oven for about 25- 30 minutes. (Tip; after 25mins take it out *wear oven gloves*, gently move it side to side, if the middle wobbles then stick it back in)

.9. Then leave to cool for 1 hour and if you can control yourself (we've never have) you can leave it in an airtight container.

.10. Sit back and admire your handiwork.

Enjoy your epic chocolatey goodness with vanilla ice cream
