TRIPLE CHOC BROWNIES
Anything with Chocolate is always a crowd pleaser. I love these Triple Choc Brownies, they are quite easy to make and bake. Lovely heated with some cream or straight out of the oven with ice-cream. Enjoy!
200 g dark chocolate, chopped
250 g butter, chopped
1 ¾ cups brown sugar
¹⁄³ cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 ¼ cup plain flour, sifted
1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 160°C. Place chocolate and butter in a saucepan and stir over low heat until smooth. Allow to cool slightly. Mix sugar, eggs, cocoa, flour and baking powder in a bowl, mix in chocolate mixture until combined.
Line 20 cm baking tin with baking paper and pour in mixture. Bake for 50 minutes or until set. (You can check by inserting and removing a skewer – it should come out clean). Cool slightly in the tin, then cut slices and serve with cream.
These make great gifts, wrapped in some tissue paper and tied with a ribbon.
Use an electric knife to ensure a neat edge when cutting.
Store in an air tight container in the cupboard for approx. 3 days.
Suitable for freezing.
Serve heated with ice cream or cream.
