Need to stop being a lazy bum, and get myself back on this.
So, I thought I would post my take on homemade Brownies- (that’s non box cake mix to you lol).
You will need:
- 1 deep brownie tin/ pan
- 200g 70% dark chocolate
- 200g unsalted butter
- 3 large eggs
- 275g caster sugar
- 80g self-raising flour
- 30g cocoa powder
- 150-200g fresh raspberries (you can leave these out if you do not want to use them)
- can of spray ‘grease’ or butter to stop the batter from sticking
Preheat your oven to 180c
Fill and boil your kettle too.
You need to then ‘create’ a bain marie which basically to us, means a bowl over a pan filled with water…You need to make sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water!!
Put the chocolate and butter and allow to mix and melt. Be careful here.
Grease your tin- you could also line it with greaseproof paper if you wanted.
Crack your eggs into a large separate bowl along with the sugar and whisk until pale and fluffy.
Once the chocolate mixture is completely melted, remove off the heat for a few minutes, then pour into your egg and sugar, you must make sure you fold NOT mix!
Sieve your cocoa and flour into the brownie mixture and again fold through some more.
– you can now add your raspberries if you want to –
Tip everything into your tin.
Bake in oven for about 25 minutes or so, you are looking for dense, slightly undercooked brownie.
Leave to cool completely before turning out and slicing!
