I have been hankering for something different to bake all week and while scrolling through rhubarb and rose I found the easy brownie recipe which she baked for her wedding. So I thought I'd give it a go. I never get on particularly well with brownies, are they a cake? Are they a pudding? Except from being brown, what are brownies?
I think these went well, they were fudge-y on the inside and cooked on the outside. Now they have cooled properly, I think they're the best brownies I've ever made! I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to baking and brownies aren't my strongest suit but this recipe is really good! Anyway I've posted below the recipe that I used....
(This recipe is adapted from BBC Good Food)
100g plain flour
125g dark chocolate
175g caster sugar
75g brown sugar (I used soft brown)
1 tablespoon of golden syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
2 tablespoons of cocoa
One lined 20cm cake tin
- Put the butter, golden syrup, chocolate and sugar in a bowl over some hot water on a low heat and stir until smooth and melted
- When the chocolate mixture has melted put aside to cool, I put my bowl in a sink full of cold water to speed up the process
- In a separate bowl whisk eggs until light and frothy!
- Add eggs to the chocolate mixture and then add dry ingredients slowly
- Bake in an oven at 160 C or gas mark 4 for 25- 35 minutes
- Leave in tin to cool for 30 minutes (I didn't turn mine out, I sliced it straight from the cake tin)
- Ta-daaa yummy brownies, best enjoyed with a cup of tea and no feelings of guilt about the calories...
