I took on the brownie challenge one more time and I think I have come pretty close to what I was looking for! I used a combination of alterations to the last recipe and Jamie Oliver’s brownie recipe and the results have come out great!
If you like cakey brownies then check out my last blog post here, but if you like fudgey soft and gooey brownies keep reading and you should be very happy! I might even try and cram a little more chocolate into these the next time.
I cut the brownies in 16 pieces and each is 255 calories.
- 200g dark chocolate (70% or above is suggested)
- 250g unsalted butter
- 80g cocoa powder
- 65g plain flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 360g castor sugar
- 4 medium eggs
- Preheat the oven to 170C.
- Melt the chocolate and butter over a double boiler on the stove top.
- In a stand mixer combine cocoa, flour and sugar.
- Pour in the melted butter and chocolate, mix until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs together.
- Add the egg mixture and beat well. If you beat on high for a few minutes you are more likely to get the nice crispy crust along the top of the brownies.
- Pour batter into a lined baking pan about 25cm square.
- Place in oven for 25-30 minutes depending on how gooey you want them. Even at 30 minutes, a wooden toothpick should NOT come out clean. These are supposed to be fudgey!
- Allow to cool before cutting.
Sit back and enjoy the goodness!!!
