For a long time I have been searching for a really good brownie recipe that gives a gooey centre, a firm outside and a tasty but not too overpowering chocolate flavour. Although I have made plenty of brownies before I haven’t ever posted a recipe as they always turn out too cakey (I have posted a Blondies recipe though!). While I was looking through Allrecipes I found a brownie recipe that looked promising so I decided to give it ago.
You will need:
14 oz/400g Caster Sugar
8 oz/225g Melted Butter
2 oz/60g Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Vanilla flavouring/extract
8 oz/225g Plain Flour
½ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Salt
2 oz/60g Walnuts/Pecans/Chocolate Chips or chunks (You can use any combination of things you like)
Let’s get started!
- Preheat your oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4.
- Grease and line a 2cm/1in deep square/rectangular tin with grease proof/baking paper.
- Measure your butter into a microwavable safe bowl and microwave for around 1 minute until fully melted.
- Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix until smooth.
- Pour mixture into the tin and bake for around 20-25 minutes until the outside is solid, but the centre is still a little gooey.
- Allow to cool in the tin, then remove and cut into equal portions.
- You are all done! 🙂
I think I have found a brownie recipe I love! First off the recipe is sooo simple so they only take around half an hour to make and bake. Secondly, they taste amazing: a gooey middle, firm outside and good chocolate flavour – just what I like in a brownie! You can personlise them really easily, with nuts or more chocolate. If you like you can also finish them off with a sprinkle of icing sugar. I would definitely recommend giving them ago!
