Who doesn’t like brownies? These have a crisp crust and a delicious gooey centre, best served warm with vanilla ice cream. If you’ve frozen them previously then just defrost and warm them briefly in a hot oven.
Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 35-40 minutes
Makes about 18
200g butter, cubed
100g good quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
4 eggs, beaten
425g granulated sugar
100g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder, sifted
½ tsp sea salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
100g dried cherries
- Preheat the oven to 180c, gas mark 4. Line a small roasting tin with baking parchment.
- Place the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl and allow the ingredients to melt either over a pan of barely simmering water or in a microwave on a low heat. Allow to cool slightly.
- Place the remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl and pour in the melted chocolate and butter mixture. Fold together lightly until thoroughly combined. Pour into the prepared tin and place in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until a crust forms. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for 15-20 minutes. Cut into squares when cooled.
Add alternative ingredients to the cherries according to what you have in your cupboard. Pecans and brazil nuts work well instead of cherries, or leave out as you prefer.
