Homemade chocolate brownie recipes
100g plain chocolate, finely chopped
125g unsalted butter, at room temperature
275g caster sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 large eggs, beaten
85g plain flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
a pinch of salt
100g pecan nut halves or walnut pieces
Prepare a cake tin, 20cm square, buttered and base-lined
Preheat the oven to 180C, 350F, gas 4.
Place the chocolate into a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of hot water, or see melting methods.
Put the butter into a large mixing bowl and, using a wooden spoon or electric mixer, beat until soft and creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla essence while continuing to beat well until the mixture is light and fluffy. Then gradually beat in the eggs.
Sift the flour, cocoa, and salt onto the mixture, then spoon the melted chocolate on top and gently stir together until smooth and thoroughly mixed. Stir in the nuts. Spoon the prepared mixture into the prepared tin and level the surface.
Bake in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until a skewer inserted halfway between the centre and the edge comes out clean; it is important that the centre is just set but still slightly soft and not cake-like.
Let it cool while still in the tin, then remove from the tin and cut into 16 squares. Eat warm at room temperature.
Store in an airtight container; best eaten within five days, or can be frozen for up to one month
