The rain seems to be back so I think it best to journey back to the kitchen with eggs, flour and enough chocolate to give a fasting priest a heart attack.
Brownies, possibly the only thing that makes people feel better than cookies. Though it’s difficult to tell with most people. This is one of the simplest recipies i have found for Brownies and personally I think it works a treat. I use a combination of white and dark chocolate but you can use whichever type or combination you want.
This would be a great opportunity to use the auld food processor. Just chuck all the ingredients in and give it a whiz for a few minutes. That or give the arms a workout and use a good old fashioned bowl 😀
2 packs of chocolate
200g of sugar
250g of Butter
6 Tbs of hot chocolate powder
150g of self raising flour
-Chop up the two packs of chocolate, measure out all the rest of the ingredients and load them all into your bowl or magi mix.
-Mix until it’s smooth (and delicious, no-one I know can resist a bit of brownie batter) Then lay it out onto a non stick tray until it’s about an inch or so think.
-Pop it into the middle of an oven pre-heated to 170 degrees.
-At that temperature it should take between 15 to 20 minutes depending on your oven.
-Once they have risen and are starting to look done take them out and stick a knife in the middle, if it comes out reasonably clean then they are done. Leave them to cool then cut them up and enjoy with ice-cream, cream or whatever tickles your fantasy 😛
