Gooey brownies are the perfect treat on a cold Winters day! And there is nothing worse than a dry brownie! This recipe will hopefully guarantee you some perfectly gooey and indulgent brownies! Enjoy them on their own, with a splash of cream and strawberries, or with the perfect cup of tea!
For this I used Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s recipe!
250g milk (or dark if you prefer) cooking chocolate
200g unsalted butter
200g caster sugar
125g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
1) Begin by preheating your oven to 180 degrees
2) Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water
3) Whisk together the sugar and eggs until soft and fluffy
4) Add the chocolate and butter mix to the egg mixture
5) Add the flour and cocoa powder to this mixture and mix all ingredients thoroughly together
6) Line a brownie baking tray with tin foil and add the brownie mixture
7) bake for around 20-25 mins (but keep a close eye on them during the cooking time!)
Tip: To know if cooked place a knife into the centre of the brownies, the knife should come out with a small amount of gooey mix on it – otherwise the brownies may be too dry!
You will find that the ones in the middle are more gooey than the ones on the outside so don’t panic!! Practise makes perfect!
Why not add some frozen fruit to the brownie mixture for a burst of freshness!
Or alternatively try cutting creme eggs in half and adding them to the mixture for the perfect Easter treat!
