Classic Brownie

Move over Jamie Oliver for this has to be the Ultimate chocolate brownie. As much as I ADORE Jamie Oliver, this brownie recipe has to be the best I’ve tried. Good crust and indulging fudginess…yumms! And it was too easy to make !Made it yesterday evening for some friends visiting and all done in about 45 minutes..of which you only spend 15 mins of your time and 30 mins in the oven! Super easy right! So here goes.

Recipe (adapted from Donna Hay magazine)

  • 400g good quality chocolate,chopped ( 70 % cocoa, I use Lindt)
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 280g butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar ( I used molasses)

Preheat oven to 180deg C.

Melt half the chocolate with all of the butter in a bain-marie till melted and glossy. Set aside to cool a little.

In a stand mixer, crack 6 eggs and add the brown sugar and mix on low speed for about 5 minutes. Now add the flour and the chocolate/butter mixture and fold in till just combined. Add the remaining chopped chocolate and fold it in.

Pour the mixture into a 25cm x 25cm square tin lined with non stick baking paper. Bake for 30-35 mins or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Allow to cool in tin and cut into squares.

Serves 8-12

Enjoy it with some good quality vanilla ice cream- didn’t have any but tasted equally divine with coffee! ­čÖé
