Brownie Heaven

Can you call a brownie juicy?  Yes, I think so.  After eating one (or possibly more) of these brownies, that are dripping with lusciousness, you will be hooked.  I'm sure they've been included in the book "1001 Foods You Must Eat Before You Die", which is probably just as much about the cultural eating experience as it is about the actual food.  Believe me it doesn't matter where you are when you eat one of these, but you must do so before leaving this planet.


I have given below the recipe for these succulent delights.  What I need to mention is that we cut off the crusts on all sides for appearances sake.  But whatever you do, don't throw these away, it would be a sin as they are anything but rubbish.  Despite what they look like they are a chewy sensation.

Chocolate Brownies
Ingredients
  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 200g soft brown sugar
  • 125g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 50g plain flour
  • 35g cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • icing sugar, for dusting

Method
  1. Preheat oven to 175c (160c fan-forced).
  2. Put butter, sugar and chopped chocolate in a bowl. Microwave on medium for 1 minute. Stir. Repeat.
  3. Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder over the chocolate mixture. Stir to combine.
  4. Add eggs and lightly combine.
  5. Pour into a 20x20cm lined tin. Bake 35 minutes.
  6. Remove and allow to cool on a rack.
  7. Slice off crusts when cool (using a serrated knife). Cut into squares. Dust with icing sugar.
Variations
  • Add 1 cup chocolate chips/bits to dry mixture (try using a mixture of dark, milk, white and now caramel chips).
  • Press 1 cup frozen raspberries into the brownie mixture just before putting it into the oven.

mmm, can you taste it??

A mountain of viscid richness.
