Today I made some gooey chocolate brownies. And they are really delicious! Crunchy and crisp on the outside but gooey and chewy on the inside.
I know I am really behind on my recipe blogging, so this is me trying to catch up!
180g (6oz) butter
180g (6oz) chocolate. I like to use milk chocolate and then a handful of white chocolate buttons to add in at the end.
250g (9oz) caster sugar
110g (4oz) plain flour
What to do:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. (Gas mark 4, 350 degrees F).
Line the bottom of a square tin. I use a deep square tin with re-usable baking parchment. This saves alot of money and time because it is always cut to the size of the tin I need!
Melt the butter and the chocolate in a pan. Slowly and on a low heat. You don’t want the chocolate to cook too fast and get all grainy and split. I also like to swirl the pan around off the heat to help it mix through.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and the sugar.
Once the chocolate is melted and the butter too, take it off the heat and place it on a cool work surface. Leave to cool for a minute or so and then add in the sugary egg mixture. Mix whilst doing this so the egg doesn’t turn scrambled from the heat of the chocolate!
Stir in the flour, mix from the middle out to stop the flour going everywhere.
Scatter in a handful of white chocolate buttons for those little gooey white drops inside.
Empty into the pan and cook for 42 minutes.
Then serve with a lovely glass of milk and even some ice-cream!
