Who doesn’t love a chocolate Brownie!
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 a 20 cm baking tin with baking paper and pour in the 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 airtight container in the cupboard for approx. 3 days.
Suitable for freezing.
Serve heated with ice cream or cream.
