There's nothing more irresistible than a chocolate brownie. Somewhere between cake and fudge, the intense gooey texture is lip lickingly good. The secret to a decent brownie though, is to use good quality chocolate and this recipe is from Mortimer Chocolate Company, makers of high quality chocolate powders. The powder isn't like cocoa powder, in fact you could just eat it straight out of the packet (confession: we did) it really is that good.
Mortimer's West African Chocolate is best for brownies and this recipe does actually feature on the back of the pack. The chocolate is very easy to use and produces a fantastic result with a deep, rich and almost fruity flavour.
Ingredients (makes 12)
- 100g Mortimer chocolate powder
- 125g butter
- 200g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 75g plain flour
Add chocolate powder and whisk until melted and glossy.
In a separate bowl, beat together eggs and sugar.
Mix this into the chocolate.
Sieve in the plain flour and beat until smooth.
Pour mixture into a lined, 9 inch (23cm) square tin.
Bake at 180C for 20 minutes.
Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
