Favourite Brownie Recipe

One of my favourite puddings to make (and eat!) are chocolate brownies, so I thought I'd share with you my favourite brownie recipe. The recipe I've been using for the last couple of years is 'Jamie's Bloomin' Brilliant Brownies' by Jamie Oliver

Annoyingly my cameras battery decided to play up once I started baking so in between showing the ingredients and the finished result I don't have any photos unfortunately :(


Ingredients 

1) 65g Plain flour, sifted 
2) 4 large eggs 
3) 200g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken up
4) 250g unsalted butter 
5) 80g Cocoa powder, sifted
6) 1 teaspoon baking powder 
7) Milk chocolate chunks 
8) 360g caster sugar 

Method (taken from Jamie Oliver's website but slightly edited)


Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Line a 24cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper. In a large bowl over some simmering water, melt the butter and the chocolate and mix until smooth.  

In a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar, then add this to the chocolate mixture. Stir together well. Beat the eggs and mix in until you have a silky consistency.


Pour your brownie mix into the baking tray, and place in the oven for around 25 minutes.  (However I've found if you do want your brownies to be slightly more cooked then bake for 50mins). 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.  



And here is one I made earlier....  haha I love my brownies with vanilla ice cream or cream, today I opted for vanilla ice cream..yumm. 

I hope this post has tempted you to make some of these brownies! If it has I would love to see how yours turns out, either tweet me a picture or tag me on instagram (links on the right) or in the comments below link me your favourite recipes!
