Chocolate Brownies

This is a friends recipe which she has used for years and never disappoints!

Makes about 16 squares

  • 90g Plain Flour
  • 42g Cocoa
  • 175g Unsalted Butter
  • 350g Caster Sugar
  • Vanilla Essence or Flavouring
  • 3 Large Eggs beaten (or 4 medium)
  • Optional: 85g Choc Chunks
  1. Melt sugar, butter and 3 tsp water in a saucepan. Stir over a low heat until melted.
  2. Remove from the heat. Leave to cool. (Can take 45 minutes or so)
  3. Once cool, stir in some Vanilla Essence or Flavouring (1-2 tsp) and the beaten eggs one at a time.
  4. Add the flour (I don't usually bother sieving!) and cocoa, and beat into a smooth paste.
  5. Pour mixture into a greased and lined tin (if you have a tin that requires lining).
  6. If you are using chocolate, press the chunks into the mixture, and smooth.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes (180⁰C Fan or 160⁰C if not a fan oven) until set, risen and the top is crisping off.
  8. Leave to cool completely and then divide.
Note: These will not last very long - they are too delicious!!!
