Brownies

Thanks to Hollie for this yummy snack!

Ingredients

  • 175g unsalted butter, chopped

  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped

  • 200g soft brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup (125g) lupin flour

  • Optional: 3/4 cup fresh or frozen raspberries or blueberries or nuts such as walnuts/halzelnuts/cashews. Note that the berries will make it more moist so it might need a touch more flour. I always make it without the berries.

  1. Place butter and chocolate pieces in a small saucepan (or in microwave safe bowl) melt over low heat until smooth.

  2. Place in a bowl and mix in sugar, vanilla, eggs and sifted flour, then gently fold through berries or nuts (if you are adding them).

  3. Pour mixture into either (a) a greased 18cm square cake tin and bake at 180ºC for 20-30 minutes or until just cooked (test by inserting a skewer into centre), or (b) spoon mixture into cupcake tray and bake at 180ºC  for 15 to 20 minutes or until just cooked. I always take the brownies out just before they're completely cooked and let them sit in the pan for a bit so that they finish cooking while they're out of the oven. This ensures that they are moist and delicious!
