Chocolate Brownies

A nice, simple, recipe today, Chocolate Brownies.  These are very easy to make and have a lovely, rich, chocolate flavour, with a crunch top and a moist insides.  

The problem with these is that you rather want to eat one each time you have a cup of tea.  If you drink as much tea as I do you could rather overdo your sugar intake if you eat too many.
Chocolate Brownie
Ingredients:
  • 140g/5oz dark chocolate
  • 225g/8oz butter
  • 5 free-range eggs
  • 450g/1lb caster sugar
  • 110g/4oz plain flour
  • 55g/2oz cocoa powder
Method:
  1. Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Line a 20x30cm/8x12in baking tin with baking parchment.
  2. Gently melt the butter and the sugar together in a large pan.
  3. Take off the heat and beat in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Turn into the baking tin and bake for 30-40 minutes until the top of the brownie is firm but the inside still feels soft.
  5. Take out of the oven and cool in the tin. Cut into 5cm/2in squares when cool. Perfect with a cup of tea.
