Brownies | Sunday Bakes


Chocolate brownies are a staple recipe that everyone has, or should have, down to perfection. Today I thought I’d share my perfect recipe for the best bitter, sweet, gooey brownies. 

I N G R E D I E N T S :

225g dark chocolate
110g butter
35g cocoa powder
3 eggs
150g light brown sugar

M E T H O D :

1. Preheat oven 180ºC/350ºF/Gas 4 and prepare your tin. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. 

2. Once the chocolate and butter have fully melted sift in the cocoa powder and leave to the side to cool. Whilst the mixture is cooling whisk the eggs until frothy before adding the sugar and whisking further until the mixture is thick and mouse-like.

3. Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture once the mixture is cool. Use a metal spoon to fold the mixture as this helps to add more air to avoid a stodgy mixture. 

4. If you wish to you could add 100g of walnuts, cherries, chocolate chips or whatever else you like to your brownie mixture at this point, personally though I like just plain brownies though.

5. Transfer your mix to your prepared tin and place in the oven to cook for 20 minutes turning the tin around halfway through for an even bake. Leave to cool before cutting into bitesize pieces.
