Homemade triple chocolate brownies AKA never too much choc

27 Feb

I bake so often that I am rarely tempted by my own sweet baked goods. Whenever I make a new recipe I try a piece but other than that I can take or leave cakes & things. A notable exception = brownies. I adore brownies – they are rick, gooey and not OTT in terms of sugary sweetness.

Much like a dud coffee a bad brownie is just depressing. I have finally settled on my brownie recipe of choice & it is the triple chocolate brownie, courtesy of the legendary bakers at the Australian Women’s Weekly. I have reduced the sugar in this recipe as it really doesn’t need the half cup they suggest.

This is so simple and speedy that I recently made it on a whim just before the school run. Coming home to the smell of warm brownies is just fab, BTW.  

GATHER:

125 g butter, cubed

200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

100g white chocolate, chopped coarsely

100g milk chocolate, chopped coarsely

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups plain flour

just under 1/4 cup caster sugar

LET’S DO IT:

Preheat oven to 180 C, grease & line a 20cm square cake pan with baking paper, allowing 2 edges to overhang.

Melt butter and dark chocolate in a large pan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat, allow to cool 10 minutes.

Stir sugar, eggs, flour and remaining choclate into melted chocolate and spread mixture into pan.

Bake for around 20 minutes – you want them to be gooey yet cooked through.

      Every so often I think, should I cook with something other than chocolate? The answer is always ‘no’.

    This recipe didn’t work for me- is the a mistake in the type of flour used?

      What a shame. Can you explain what the problem was? This definitely uses plain flour – I just rechecked the Women’s Weekly recipe. Sorry to hear it didn’t work for you.
