One-Bowl Easy Chocolate Brownies

24 Jun

Time to fill the biscuit tin again. I tweaked this from the Chelsea Sugar website. It’s pretty delicious. It’s also really unhealthy, so eat it with a side salad to cancel out the calories.

In a bowl, melt 200 grams of butter in the microwave. Then add:

  • just under a cup of cocoa (this feels like LOADS, but it’s not a typo)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • couple of handfuls of choc chips
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar

Stir the wet mixture together, then add 1 cup of flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder and mix again. No need to bring out a machine – stirring with a spoon works. Bake in a cake or slice tin at 170 deg Celsius for between 20-30 minutes (depends on the height of it in your tin).

Due to pantry constraints, tonight I made it with only 3 eggs and no choc chips. It tastes fine. I have no battery life left in my camera to take a pic, but if you imagine a dark chocolatey slab of cake . . . that’s pretty much it.
