This chocolate brownie recipe is perfect for when you have a lot of hungry people around the table or perhaps for a bake sale! Our Digital Assistant, Tilly, says "I was given this recipe from a lady called Georgina, who I met on a road trip in Ireland. It's decadent and makes the best chocolate brownies I've ever eaten. You can make them with or without nuts like I have here".

Chocolate Brownies

Ingredients:
  • 375g dark chocolate
  • 375g butter
  • 500g caster sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 125g plain flour or gluten free plain flour
  • 75g hazelnuts (chopped)
Method:
  1. Preheat your oven to 160℃.
  2. Whisk (preferably with an electric hand whisk) the sugar and the eggs very well for about 5 minutes. The mixture should be really airy so it's essential not to whisk them for any less.
  3. In a pan melt the butter and chocolate and then set aside to cool for around 10 minutes.
  4. Add the melted mixture to the sugar and eggs and mix again.
  5. Then add the flour and continue to mix
  6. Line your tin(s) with baking parchment, adding a little water to the tin before you add the parchment.
  7. Pour in your brownie mixture and sprinkle with the hazelnuts.
  8. Bake for 25/30 minutes. The mixture should still be a little wet when a skewer is inserted.
