Recipe Monday, appears to be on Wednesday this week!


I need to share with the world the best ever brownie recipe. It's really quite divine, and simple as... I was far too lazy to cook the mocha chiffon cake I had in mind on the weekend, so instead whipped up a batch of these on Saturday (and another on Sunday, because they make it through the night...)

115g unsalted butter
240g castor sugar (confectioner's)
3 medium sized eggs
80g plain flour
70g cocoa powder (I prefer Nestle... it really seems to make a difference in this recipe)
1 tsp baking powder

+ a hand full of nuts or choc chips or whatever you have, chopped roughly... I think macadamia nuts make this dish just that little bit more divine!


Preheat oven to 165 degrees Celsius; Line a 600g loaf tin with baking paper.

Cream the sugar and butter until smooth and pale, gradually add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until well combined.

Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder, and fold through the butter mixture along with nuts or chocolate bits.

Pour the mix into the loaf tin and bake for 30-50 minutes... broad spectrum I know, but I bake for about 35 minutes, which leaves you with a fudgy, yummy, moist centre, but cooked enough to stay together.

Leave the brownies to cool for a little before serving... Yum yum!

This looks quite delicious, and not too difficult, eh? As my baby says when he sees something yummy, "smack smack smack"!

That looks *amazing*. And I am wanting chocolate like crazy today.
