So I really wanted to share with you my very own recipe for making the most mouth watering chocolate brownies. I was at home yesterday and was somewhat inspired test out my cooking skills for the afternoon.
I ventured onto the ‘Tastey’ YouTube page. A new, easy to follow, vlogger who has hit the nations screens and become a cooking sensation.
I found their own brownie recipe and started to follow the steps except I slightly tweaked the ingredients to suit my sugar cravings that afternoon. So here it is! I promise you won’t regret giving this recipe a go. I’m not a cook at all and this was my first attempt ever but my goodness these brownies are an emotional piece of heaven.
- 8oz chocolate- make sure you use dairy milk chocolate chunks.
- Butter: 3/4 cup (I used 6 large table spoons)
- Sugar: 1 1/4 cup
- 2 medium eggs
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup Bourneville cocoa powder
- 180C for 25 mins
Note: A pint glass is the equivalent to 2 cups. So half a pint glass is 1 Cup. Metric measurements in link below:
- Pre heat the oven to 180C conventional and cover a baking tray in grease proof paper.
- Melt half your Diary milk over a sauce pan filled with boiling water, in a China heat proof bowl, on the stove until completely melted. (Please use an oven glove to remove the bowl)
- Meanwhile mix up your butter (pref melted) and sugar until you have formed a creamy mixture.
- Add the two eggs and continue to stir until a frothy formulae has formed.
- Now siv in the flour and Bourneville cocoa powder into the mix. Slowly stir the mix whilst pouring in. The mixture should now look quite thick. (Note it is supposed to look thick, this will give the gooey texture at the end so don’t try adding water!)
- Finally, add the remaining, individually chopped, chocolate chunks into the mix and stir in.
- Pour the goodness onto the baking tray and smooth down the surface. Feel free to add Malteser toppings for a crunch, or your own fancy, for an extra dose of heaven.
- Let the baking commence- Place it on the middle shelf of the oven. Wait 25 minutes. Dip your prodding stick (knife) into the mix once the 25 minutes are up. It will look uncooked and some will stick onto the knife however, it is finished so no more cooking!
- Let it cool for a while…
- EAT – served well with milk and strawberries. You may cry a little.
I really do hope this has been easy to follow. If you have any questions please do write in the comments as would love for you do try this recipe out!
Lots of love and happy eating!
