The best brownies ever

Here’s another recipe from Toll House that I grew up on. This means that for me, a brownie must contain chocolate chips or chunks. Without them, it’s a sorry squidgy half-cake. These brownies are a little fudgy, moist in the middle, slightly crisp on the outside, and just rich enough. The chocolate chips add bite and sass.

100g plain flour
¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
¼ tsp salt
75g butter
150g sugar
2 tbsp water
350g chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 170°C. Combine flour, bicarbonate of soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Combine butter, sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring just to a boil. Remove from heat, adding half the chocolate chips and the vanilla extract. Stir until melted and smooth, and transfer to a large bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually blend in the flour mixture, then stir in the remaining chocolate chips. Pour into a baking pan (approx 20cm square) and bake for around half an hour.

Once cooled (if you can wait that long!), cut into generous squares and eat all by yourself. Erm, I mean invite some friends over to help you eat them…

    • Oh Tali, you’ve seen straight through me! However my very good excuse is that what with the hot chocolate and your gorgeous chocolate cake, this as well might have proved too much… most of it is left though (I had a naughty brownie breakfast) so if you fancy some this week let me know 🙂
