My Famous Brownies to Feed the Soul

Everyone has that one dish they love to cook or that one dessert they get a lotta praise for. Well this is my ‘signature bake’ if you will. Lots of tins of these delicious triple chocolate brownies have made their way into the office, to family gatherings and get togethers with friends. With it being winter, I thought it the perfect time to share my tried and tested brownie recipe to feed your soul and bring warmth to your heart (and heaps of chocolate to your tummy). After all, chocolate is vital for an amazing libido and general sane life.*

So here’s the recipe:

185g unsalted butter

175g caster sugar

85g plain flour

40g cocoa powder

3 eggs

150g bar of dark chocolate

Bar of milk chocolate

Bar of white chocolate

And here’s how I go about it:

  • Pre-heat the oven to Gas 4/180C and grease and line your brownie pan with baking parchment (mine is 13×9.5inches)
  • Prepping is key, so I like to chop my milk and white chocolate bars into chunks ready to just mix in once the wet mixture is ready
  • Melt the butter and dark chocolate together in a bowl on a saucepan filled with water on the hob (CHEAT: Can melt in microwave super quickly)
  • The secret of the chewy gooey brownie is to whisk the eggs and sugar until doubled in size with a hand whisk – this can take 5 minutes but I am super impatient and only give it 3 and it still gets the desired results hurrah!
  • Mix the melted chocolately goodness in with the eggs and sugar, fold in the flour and cocoa powder, then the chocolate chunks
  • Pour into your prepared brownie pan and bake for about 35  minutes (I am a serial oven opener and like to check on my chocolate brownie baby so feel free to take out when the top is firm, trust your judgement!)
  • Leave to cool in the pan a bit
  • Lift out of the pan using the baking paper and cool some more before cutting into desired portions (Normal people say 20, I say 8 portions at best…**)
  • ENJOY REAL SOULFOOD

 

Well there you have it, my foolproof brownies. Make with love and share around (or don’t, who am I to tell you not to eat the whole pan to yourself… I totally would) these brownies really are da bomb.

With love & positiff vibes whilst licking the spoon

*Note I am no scientist but all the mags say chocolate is an aphrodisiac right? Plus, us chocaholics would go insane without said food group.
** Okay okay maybe 8 portions isn’t healthy but, do what ya gotta do. Balance is key.
