Foodporn Friday: Gooey Chocolate Brownies
I made these last weekend following my colleague Lilly’s recipe and they were divine! The brownie batter smells like Nutella and I had a hard time not eating it raw… but resisted and they were worth it. They get that perfect brownie crust where the top cracks a little and the edges taste like toffee with a gooey chocolatey centre. These are going to turn into a family favourite for sure.
Gooey double chocolate brownies
115g of butter
115g of plain chocolate, broken into pieces
300g of caster sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 large eggs
140 g plain flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
100g of white choc chips (i got a block of dream and chopped it)
Heat the oven to 180 c
Melt butter and chocolate, stir until smooth.
Leave to cool for a bit…
Stir in the sugar, salt and vanilla. add eggs one at a time and beat until blended.
Sift flour and cocoa powder, lumps are not our friend and beat until smooth.
Stir in chocolate chips (don’t put in hot mixture cause then the dream choc just melts)
I also added pecan nuts at this point.
Pour mixture into tin.
Bake 35-40 minutes
I didnt make the icing – these are very rich without any… but in case you want to, here’s the rest.
Make the icing…
4 tbsp of butter, 1 tbsp of milk, 75 g icing sugar, 2 tbsp cocoa powder.
Melt butter with milk. stir in other stuff then ice the brownies.
