Easy Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookies

I do love a chocolate cookie, from time to time, and came across a recipe on youtube from Cupcake Jemma .  She calls the Ultimate, rather than my Easy.  I had to adapt the recipe slightly, since Jemma uses rye flour and I used plain.  But the recipe is very easy to follow and works very well indeed.

I also cooked mine for longer than Jemma suggested, and they still turned out nice and moist inside, as well as having a nice crunch around the edges.

So I was very pleased with the result, a lovely chocolatey cookie, with a hit of salt as well.

Update:  My sister in Canada, Margaret is her name, made these today too, and hers turned out very well indeed, in fact her family couldn't stop eating them.

Ingredients:
  • 120g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 395g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
  • 50g unsalted butter, chopped
  • 4 large free range eggs
  • 270g light soft brown sugar(I used muscovado)
  • Sea Salt for sprinkling
Method:
  1. In a bain-marie melt the chocolate and butter together until it is a nice silky mixture.
  2. Whip the eggs and sugar in a stand mixer until the mixture has tripled in volume.
  3. Pour the chocolate into the egg mixture and mix on slow until combined.
  4. Add the flour and baking powder and mix on slow, until combined.
  5. Place the mixture in the fridge for about an hour to firm up.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/350F.
  7. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  8. Scoop the batter into 12 balls on the baking sheet and press to flatten slightly.
  9. Sprinkle a little salt onto each mound.
  10. Bake in the oven for 10-13 minutes until the tops have cracked nicely.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely, on a wire rack.
