Yesterday me and the boyfriend made these amazing chocolate brownies.They're firm on the outside but squidgey and gooey in the middle, and are perfect for a sweet tooth! So I thought I'd share the recipe for anyone who wants to give it a go themselves...
250g butter (unsalted)
200g milk choc
80g cocoa powder
65g plain flour
360g caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
Some extra chocolate of your choice (we used 100g white and 100g dark)
1. Preheat your oven to 200c and grease or line a baking tin ready for later.
2. Weigh out your dry ingredients first - sieve the flour and cocoa powder into your mixing bowl, add the baking powder and sugar, and mix them all together.
3. Melt the butter together with the 200g chocolate - you can do this in a bowl over some boiling water, or even in the microwave. Mix it well.
4. Add the melted chocolatey butter with your dry ingredients, and crack in the eggs, mixing until smooth.
5. When the mixture has cooled down, add chunks of your extra chocolate to the mix - we used milk, white and dark chocolate (hence 'triple' choc brownies!)
6. Pour your mixture into the baking tin and place it in the middle of the oven for 20-30 mins
We checked on our brownies every 10 minutes... baking times make differ depending on factors like the size of your tin or the style of your oven, etc. We waited until the brownies were springy to touch, but when we poked the middle of the batch, the skewer came out with gooey mixture still on it.
(Optional: poke leftover chunks of chocolate into the top of the brownies halfway through baking!)
7. Remove and leave to cool in the tin - then cut into squares and enjoy...
Let me know if you try this recipe, I will definitely be making more! We found the original on Jamie Oliver's website and simply adapted it to suit our own brownie needs :)
