CHOCOLATE BROWNIE RECIPE

Delicious chocolate brownies firm exterior with a gooey middle, yum yum

Ingredients

250g unsalted butter, chopped

200g dark Fair Trade chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken up

80g cocoa powder

65g plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

360g caster sugar

4 large free-range eggs

Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Line a 25cm  square baking tin with greaseproof paper. In a large bowl over some simmering  water, melt the butter and the chocolate and mix until smooth, then remove from heat. Sieve the cocoa powder, flour and baking powder into a separate bowl and then add the sugar. Add this to the chocolate mixture and stir together well. Beat the eggs in a bowl and mix into chocolate mixture until you have a silky consistency.

Pour brownie mix into the baking tray, and place in the oven for around 25 minutes. You don’t want to overcook them so, unlike cakes; you don’t want a skewer to come out all clean. The brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle. Allow to cool in the tray, then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and cut into chunky squares and enjoy!!
