Brownies


Anyone who knows me will know that I don't really know how to rest. I keep going and going and going until I burn out and have to stop. Today is one of those days. I've been spending the last couple of days exploring the countryside near where we live, going on long walks and days out with my boyfriend while he has some much deserved time off work. Last night, after we got back from exploring the coast down in Seaford, I couldn't settle and fancied something sweet to accompany my viewing of last years Bake Off. I am in denial that there won't be a series this year due to Corona so I'm re-watching last years to make up to it. 

After the success of the Slutty Brownies I made from her site, I thought I would give this recipe from Jane's Patisserie a go. I didn't use as much chocolate in it though but they still came out deliciously gooey. 

Ingredients:

200g plain or dark chocolate
200g butter
275g caster sugar
3 eggs
90g plain flour
30g cocoa powder
200g white chocolate, chunks

Methods:

1. Preheat your oven to 180/160 fan. Line a 9x9 inch baking tin with baking parchment. 
2. Melt together the butter and dark chocolate in a saucepan on a medium-low heat. Leave to the side to cool to room temperature.
3. Using an electric whisk/standing mixer, whisk together the eggs and caster sugar for a few minutes until it has almost doubled in volume and turned pale. 
4. Pour the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and fold together gently. Be careful not to knock all the air out of it!
5. Once completely combined, fold in the cocoa powder and flour. When the mixture is completely combined, add the chocolate chips and mix once more. 
6. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 25-30 minutes. Once baked, leave to cool completely in the tin. 

I really need to invest in a proper 9x9 inch baking tin. I don't have one so I keep making do with a tin which is probably can probably handle the same volume, but not the right size at all. My Brownies came out very flat, I think if I'd had the right size tin, they would have been a bit chunkier! Will definitely be making them again!
