I make these brownies almost weekly and they might be the reason why I need a new pair of jeans. But they are just SO good I can’t resist and besides that they are so easy to make, I can whip them up in about 10 mins, then it’s just the torturous wait while they’re in the oven. The original recipe came from here, which is a handy video to show you exactly how it’s done.
- 150g Chocolate
- 250g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
- 150g Unsalted Butter
- 100g Plain Flour
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- Salted Caramel Sauce
The recipe is for a 20 x 20 baking tin, but mine wasn’t exactly that and it was fine.
Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan160°C/Gas 4. Then line your baking tin with grease proof paper and set aside. Melt the chocolate and the butter together in a bain-marie until fully melted. Then take the bowl off the heat and mix in the sugar.
Add each egg one at a time and mix in between. Then the vanilla extract and the flour, giving the mixture a good stir.
Pour the mixture into your baking tin and add whatever topping you like. I went with salted caramel sauce, but I have used gin & tonic salted caramel sauce which was delicious (so delicious I finished the jar…oops). It’s up to you how much you put on, I put a good few teaspoons on the top and then swirled it around with a fork.
Pop your tin in the oven for around 25-30 minutes, depending on how efficient your oven is, and whether you like your brownies still squidgey (take them out at 25 mins) or more solid (30 mins). I like them more solid, so I wait until a knife comes out clean when I poke it.
Allow them to cool for 20 minutes (or as long as you can resist) and enjoy!
Let me know if you give these a go!
