Not that kind of adult brownies, the type that aren’t for kids. These are dense and gooey, squishy and chocolatey with a delicious flavour that kids just won’t understand. This is probably my favorite brownie recipe ever! It only takes about 5 minutes to make the batter and is all mixed up in 1 saucepan. Even if you think you can’t bake you can manage these!
- 150g butter
- 3 tbs black treacle
- 220g caster sugar (or 200g caster sugar and 20g muscovado sugar)
- 90g plain flour
- 70g cocoa powder
50g dark chocolate (anything over 60% will do)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 50g chocolate chips (I use dark)
- Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a 17cm square tin
- Melt the butter, treacle and sugar and mix until combined. Turn off the heat.
- put the chocolate in and stir it till it melts.
- Whisk the eggs in one by one followed by the vanilla extract.
- sieve the flour and cocoa in and fold in in gently. It might look a bit grainy but don’t worry about that. Stir in the choccy chips.
- Pour into the tin and bake for 15-20 mins. It should look dry on top and just set in the centre.
- allow to cool in the tin then cut into squares as big or small as you like.
