I have been sick (again) so I haven’t really been in the state to update the podcast, but I thought it would be a shame to leave all my readers empty handed during Christmas. So today I wanted to share this brownie recipe with you. After many attempts to make a perfect fudgy brownie recipe, this is the one that finally made my husband ask me to make brownies again, and he just made them for me last night for my birthday.
This one bowl batch of brownies is easy to prepare, transport, and delicious to eat. It makes 9 medium sized brownies, and can be easily doubled if you need more than that. If you double the recipe, make sure to use a larger pan.
60 grams milk chocolate
60 grams dark chocolate
(or you can use 120 grams of kouverta/semi-sweet chocolate)
115 (1/2 cup) grams butter
90 grams (3/4 cup) flour
200 grams (1 cup) granulated white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 medium eggs
Preheat your oven to 325 F (165 C) on the convection bake setting.
Cut the butter into small pieces and melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave on low, or on the stovetop on a low heat.
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl including the melted chocolate and butter mixture. Stir the flour in last.
To prepare your 8×8 inch pan, rub butter or oil on every inch of the pan with a paper towel, put a few teaspoons of flour into the pan and shake the pan around to distribute the flour as a thin layer all over the pan. Or you could use parchment paper to line the pan, or a teflon non stick oven liner (they are black and can be found at any Lidl during the month of November or you can purchase one on Amazon here).
You will bake them for 15 minutes on convection to get the top crispy and then switch it to normal bake for 15 minutes so the brownies don’t get over baked. Bake for 20 minutes on convection and 17 on normal if you double the recipe.
This recipe is perfect for having a few ladies or gents over for fellowship. Make sure you allow it to cool completely before you eat it, the longer you wait the better it will taste.
