Nicole's Brownies

Got this brilliant, sticky, crunchy brownie recipe from a friend:

100g butter
50g cocoa powder
2 eggs
225g castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
50g self-raising flour
100g slab chocolate (I like using the one with hazelnuts) - roughly chopped

Spray a square (+/- 23cm) tin or glass dish with non-stick spray.
Pre-heat oven to 180C
Melt the butter in the microwave (careful not to boil it). Add the cocoa powder and mix well until no lumps are left.

Beat the eggs and add the castor sugar. Beat well until the mixture is light yellow and fluffy. Ad the cocoa mixture to the eggs and sugar and add the vanilla essence. Sift in the flour (yes it's 0nly 50g self-raising) and add the chocolate bits last.

Pour into the dish and slightly flatten with a spatula. Mixture is slightly stiff. Bake for 25-30 mins.

Can be served within 5-10 minutes with vanilla ice cream but is also delicious the next day as a crumbly, sticky, crunchy brownie :D


Thanks Nicole!
