I’m sure you have all seen the photos floating around of the 3 ingredient Nutella brownies. They are everywhere right now. Buzzfeed, Facebook, Twitter..Instagram.
I of course took it upon myself to try them out and let you know how it went. The recipe I originally followed was from Instructables. It called for 280g Nutella with 62g of plain flour and 2 eggs. Simple. The method is easy too, mix it all together and bake for about 30 minutes. The mixture looked pretty good:
I baked it for just 20 minutes as I could tell it was done. When I cut into it I discovered it was more of a cake than a brownie, a delicious cake but a cake none the less. It would be lovely served with custard or ice cream while warm or left to cool and topped with icing or chocolate. They would be great for children at picnics as they are less squidgy and messy than normal brownies.
I was a bit annoyed though that they weren’t brownies so after a bit of experimenting and a bit of Instagram help – thanks Not Another Mummy Blog I made these 4 ingredient Nutella brownies:
You will need:
400g of Nutella ( or supermarket own brand Choc Hazelnut spread )
65g plain flour
1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180/gas mark 4.
Mix all ingredients together, pour into a greased and lined square baking tray (approximately 9 x 9inches)
and bake for about 25 minutes until the top is set but it’s still a bit jiggly and squidgy inside.
If you eat these while warm you will occasionally get a bite of melted, gooey chocolate which just takes it up a notch. Add some salted caramel sauce and perfecto.
