Chocolate brownies

Sep 5, 2020Brownies Recipes

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  • Prepare the cake tin. Grease an 18cm/7in square cake tin and line with non-stick baking parchment.

  • In a clean bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.

  • Chop the chocolate and put to one side.

  • Chop the pecans, if using. Gently fold the nuts and chocolate into the butter and egg mixture. Add the vanilla extract.

  • Dissolve the coffee granules in two tablespoons of warm water and add to the mixture. Mix together well.

  • Add the baking powder, then sift in the flour and cocoa powder. Mix well; the mixture will be quite wet.

  • Spoon the brownie batter into the prepared tin and level out the top with a spatula.

  • Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool in the tin for ten minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool.

  • To serve, cut into rectangles and dust with icing sugar.
