Posted on August 20, 2012 by admin

Ingredients

Serves: 16

  • 375g butter
  • 375g of the best dark chocolate you can afford
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 500g caster sugar
  • 300g walnuts (optional)

Preparation method

Prep: 5 mins | Cook: 40 mins

Preheat oven to 170 degrees C and lightly grease or line a 20cm square casserole or baking tray. Place butter and chocolate in a heat resistant bowl in microwave. Melt for 1 or 2 minutes, checking regularly until melted. (You could also do this in a bowl over hot water). Mix together flour and salt. Then beat the eggs and vanilla together and add the sugar. Add the chocolate mixture to the rest of the ingredients. If you adding walnuts, fold them into the mixture also. Pour into the baking tray. Pop in the centre of the oven and cook for 40 minutes. Once cooked leave to rest for 10-15 minutes before serving with ice cream. For a fudgy texture, leave it in the fridge overnight. You can eat the brownies on their own or serve with vanilla ice cream and berries. Second option is “heaven”.
