Sticky Chocolate BrowniesPosted 27 November 2010 by Debbie
Mmmmm…. brownies. Is there better way to satisfy a chocolate craving? If so, I’d like to hear it! This recipe comes from a book of chocolate recipes called Chocolate (imaginative, no?) published by Parragon. The book has two brownie recipes: one for “Sticky Chocolate Brownies” and one for “Chocolate Fudge Brownies”. The fudge brownies had icing on top, which I don’t really approve of, so I went for the “sticky” ones.
Here are my ingredients:
- 100 g unsalted butter
- 175 g caster sugar
- 75 g dark brown sugar
- 125 g dark chocolate
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 100 g plain flour
- 2 tbsp cocoa
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
Mix together the white & brown sugar, butter, chocolate and golden syrup over a low heat, and leave it to cool.
I was in a bit of a rush, so this pan ended up going outside for 10 minutes to cool — outside being colder than the fridge right now.
Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the vanilla extract. Sieve the flour, cocoa and baking powder.
Whisk the eggs into the now-cool chocolate mixture and then fold in the dry ingredients. Pour it into a baking tin and bake it at 180°C for about 25 minutes.
The brownies were, of course, delicious. They tasted very chocolatey and were quite fudgy, although not quite as dense as I like brownies to be. I also think they’d benefit from the addition of chocolate chips. They’ll do though.
