Easy Brownie Recipe to follow

This is a super quick recipe for Brownies, and who doesn't love Brownies?! 
(I only did half as I didn't have enough chocolate so it may look less in my pictures!)

These are the ingredients you will need: Butter (225g), Caster Sugar (300g), Plain Flour (225g), 3 Eggs, Plain Chocolate (375g), Cocoa Powder (4 tbsp), and some Vanilla Extract (1 tsp). 





You'll also need a tray bake pan and some baking paper! 


Step 1

Weigh out the butter and make sure it is cut up into small cube-like shapes and then put it into a heatproof bowl. 

Also break up the chocolate bar and add that to the bowl with the butter. You then put some water into a pan and once that has heated up on the hob, place the heatproof bowl on top. 

Stir every so often until the butter and chocolate have melted and combined with each other, till it looks smooth and glossy. Once that is done remove from the heat and allow it to cool down. 





Step 2

Before you do anything else, pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees, 

In another bowl crack the 3 eggs into it, and weigh out the sugar and add that to the bowl of eggs. You then get an electric mixer if you have one, if not you can do it by hand just may take a little longer, and mix it till it looks quite thick. 

Once that is done you then add the cooled chocolate and butter mix to the bowl and fold it in rather than whisking it. Keep folding it in until they are both well combined. 





Step 3 

Then add in the tea spoon of vanilla extract to the bowl. 

Weigh out the plain flour and with that add the 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder. You then sift the flour and cocoa powder mix in the bowl and carry on to fold it in until it is well combined. 







Step 4

Line the baking dish with baking powder and make sure to get the sides covered as well so the brownie mixture doesn't stick to the dish. 

Pour the mixture into the dish and spread it out evenly. 

Bake for about 30 minutes, but keep an eye on it, if the surface of the mixture looks a bit shiny then it is most probably done. 

Allow it to cool down, and then you can take it out of the dish by lifting the brownies with the baking paper and place it onto a plate. You can then cut out several pieces, but this recipe is supposed to make around 16 squares. 





Oops I ate one before remembering to take a picture!


Enjoy!! 

You can decorate them, or put something on top of them to make them a little more interesting. Or you could even add chocolate chips or anything like that to the mixture before putting it in the dish to cook, just giving you that extra something. 

If you make any then let me know, show me some pictures!
