Sometime, simple is best. For me, nothing beats a nice, rich, gooey chocolate brownie, and there are so many variations! Keep it simple, or add some chopped nuts, white chocolate chips or even dried fruit. This is a great base recipe to experiment with.
185g unsalted butter
185g dark chocolate, chopped
270g brown sugar
40g cocoa powder
85g plain flour
Preheat oven to 180C, grease and line a 20cm slice tin.
Melt butter and sugar together in a saucepan over low heat, let cool slightly.
Whisk sugar and eggs together at high speed until doubled in size and light in colour.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and fold through, then sift in cocoa and flour and mix with a spatula until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Pour into lined dish and bake for 25-35 minutes depending on how gooey you like them!
