I’ve been meaning to post this recipe for a while.. It really does make the very best gooey brownies every single time.
This is the second entry into the GBBO ..my first is HERE.
I am disappointed that for one reason or another I have missed out on several weeks but never mind. Once again I hope to be able to join in the remaining weeks.
My recipe is based on one that I fiddled with from Mary Berry – queen of cakes herself.
You will need:
275g softened salted butter
375g golden vanilla caster sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp Nielsen Massey vanilla paste/or extract
75g cocoa powder
100g self raising flour
35g white chocolate chunks/chips
35g dark chocolate chunks/chips
35g milk chocolate chips
50g icing sugar (for decoration)
Preheat your oven to gas mark 4 and grease/line a 12×9 traybake tin.
It’s the simplest method. Put all ingredients apart from your icing sugar in a large mixing bowl and mix either by hand or with an electric whisk/beater for a few minutes until combined.
Tip into your prepared tin and level out. Bake for approximately 40 mins until your top is set and it still has a slight wobble but is cooked. Remove from oven and leave to cool in tin for a few minutes before placing on a wire rack, when more or less lukewarm dredge with sieved icing sugar. Cut into squares and serve.
These are delicious served with vanilla ice cream when slightly warm.
They keep really well for days in a sealed container although good luck with trying not to eat them. They are seriously good -this is the 4th time I’ve made these in 6 weeks! Oops. I have shared though. Honestly.
