I reckon that pretty much everyone loves a brownie. There are of course absolutely tons of brownie recipes around that cater for all tastes – dense, sqidgy, firm, whatever you fancy. These ones are pretty dense and liberally studded with choc bits. They are delicious, and it is seriously difficult to stop at one piece. The recipe is from a Nestle cookbook called Australia’s Sweet Baking Favourites.
125 grams butter
1 1/3 cups / 200 grams dark cooking chocolate
½ cup / 110 grams caster sugar
1 ¼ cups / 185 grams plain flour
1 cup / 190 grams white choc chips
1 cup / 190 grams milk choc chips
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees C, grease and line a slice tray
- Combine dark cooking chocolate, butter and sugar in a large saucepan and heat until all ingrediets are melted and combined. Cool for about 10 minutes – if you put the egg in while it’s still very hot there’s the risk the egg will scramble.
- Stir in remaining ingredients and tip into the prepared tin. Bake for 25 minutes or until the brownie is just firm to the touch. Cool in the pan and then slice.
