I may or may not have gone to the shops to get butter to bake brownies especially for this week’s prompt which is ‘baked’. Never mind that I ate a baked muffin for breakfast and I have some baked peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen. Oh no, this called for fresh baked! Fresh baked brownies.
In my defense my teen requested brownies and this recipe specifically, the Jamie Oliver ‘S’mores Brownie’ recipe minus the ‘S’mores’ bit!
Bad news is I can’t find the darn recipe online, good news is, I am willing to type it out for you!
Jamie Oliver’s S’mores Brownies without the S’mores…
Line a 20cm square cake tin.
200g chocolate (I used semi sweet chocolate chips)
1tsp baking powder
30g cocoa powder
Melt the butter and chocolate.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until pale.
Fold the eggs and sugar into the chocolate which has cooled (we don’t want scrambled eggs!).
Fold in the flour, cocoa and baking powder.
Pour into the prepared cake tin.
Bake for 25 minutes until the top is crisp to the touch.
Cut into nice big squares, put the kettle on, make a cup of tea and enjoy with friends and family!
