Bobbin Brownie Bake

Monday, 15 September 2014






With the Great British Bake Off gracing our screens I have caught the baking bug . This is a recipe I usually use when we have no treats for pack lunches left in the house. It's quick and easy and pretty much fool proof.
This recipe is definetly not for the faint hearted , it may be loaded with calories but it is worth every bite. A good treat for a cheat.

Bobbin Brownie Bake 

Serves 4 - 8 depending on how greedy your feeling.

Ingredients 
185g of the best dark chocolate you can get your hands on
85g plain flour
40g coco powder
185g unsalted butter
120g of milk chocolate chunks ( you can break a bar up if you can't find a pot of chunks)
3 eggs
200g golden caster sugar

Method
I like simple and I am a little slap dash but I think quick cooking has the best results and in this day and age nobody has time to spend hours baking brownies. So heres my quick fire to the point method.

Heat your oven to 165C ( fan oven ) whilst separately greasing a 25cm x 30cm ( rough measurements ... anything close will do ) baking tin.

1. Melt the dark chocolate and butter over a bowl of hot water until there are no lumps. Stirring intermitterly.

2. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and sugar.

3. Sift the flour and coco powder into the eggs and sugar and fold into the mixture until combined.

4.Add the melted chocolate and butter combo into the mix and fold all together.

5. Lastly throw in the chunks and mix so they are evenly placed throughout the mixture.

6.Pour into your pre greased baking tin roughly 25cm x 30cm . However , you can judge this as the mixture should reach half way up the sides of your baking tray.

7. Bake in the oven for 20-30 mins checking regularly so they are not burnt. Check through the oven window apposed to opening the door as this can affect the bake.

8. Once baked you should be able to put a knife through the middle and it come out clean. The top should be crackerly whilst the middle moist and spongey.

9. Leave to cool before removing and cutting into squares of your choice of size.

* Make sure you have a friend or relative on hand to help with licking the bowl and washing up at the end.

Bake Responsibly
Please be careful when using sharp knives and hot ovens as these can cause accidents.
I take no responsibility for food poisoning caused if this recipe is not followed properly.
