It's Brownie Time Again!!

So you might have worked out that one of BBG's favourites is... brownies. Yes ok we know they are easy-peasy but we LOVE trying out new recipes and comparing and constrasting...

So this is one from Bill Granger's book, Bill's Basics. They are quite fudgey and rich but not too bitter. We added the white choclate chunks to jazz them up a bit and worked out THE perfect way to bake them, see below...


350g  caster sugar
60g plain plour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs, lightly beaten
200g unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
200g dark chocolate, chopped
100g white chocolate, cut into chunks

Preheat the oven to 160C. Line a 22cm square baking tin with parchment paper
Line a 22cm square baking tin with parchment paper
Melt the dark chocolate gently over some simmering water

Stir together the sugar, flour and baking powder.
Mix in the eggs, butter and vanilla until well combined.
Pour into the baking tin and then place one white chocolate square every few cm's as shown:

This means they melt into the middle of each brownie square.
Bake for 40 minutes. They are best slightly under-done as they continue cooking when taken out fo the over and the fudgier the better!

Leave to cool slightly in the tin, then turn out onto a wire rack. Cut into squares around where the white chocolate squares ahve melted under the surface. Eat immediately!
