I love a good sweet treat but, because of my lack of an oven in my flat, I can't bake as much as I once did. However; the OH has a proper kitchen and basically take over on a weekend so I can muck about. I used this recipe because I'd been told they produced great brownies. Don't always trust advice; or at least don't just hope on someone else's baking skills.
So I melted all the butter and chocolate together (well, most of the chocolate; I did "test" a little bit) and let that do it's own thing for a while, so I could then weigh out all the other ingredients into nice, little bowls; like on Blue Peter.
I mixed in the blender the eggs and the sugar together in a mixer until they were liquid, like a thick milkshake, and folded them with melted chocolate & butter mix which should be cooled down by now. I didn't wait until it was completely cooled and my egg mix wasn't thick enough. You need to know this now to understand why my results aren't .... photo-gorgeous.
Then the cocoa powder and flour mix gets added in and it should be all completely mixed together. An even mix is the best thing to aim for. The recipe asks for you to add in more chocolate chucks but it's up to you really. Pour the mix into a prepared tin so it can be put straight into the hot oven.
Then comes the cleaning up:
Once it's cooked for the full time length, have a look in the oven to make sure the brownies looked cooked on top. The middle of the tin shouldn't wiggle at all so bung it back in for a bit if it does. I think I was impatient and so took mine out a little too early. My end result was a bit too gooey and I had to eat it with a spoon until I had the good idea to put it in the fridge to set more. It came out much better afterwards.
Not a 100% success but it still all magically disappeared
