Choc Chip Fudge Brownies

I haven’t made brownies for quite a while, and I think the last time that I did make them they came out of a box. Over the weekend I found a recipe card that I had picked up from somewhere and decided to give it a go – with some adaptations of course!

I was actually surprised just how well these turned out – especially the middle ones as I love the gooey bits! But then again, the slightly crunchy edges are great when still warm with ice cream slathered over them……

Ingredients:

  • 175g/6oz dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 140g/4oz unsalted butter, diced
  • 3 eggs
  • 225g/8oz sugar
  • 100g/3.5oz plain/all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 50g chocolate chips (I used dark choc chips, but use your favourite type)

Method:

  • Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced/350F.
  • Line and grease a rectangular tin (approx 27cm x 17.5cm x 3.5cm / 11in x 7in x 1.5in).
  • Place the butter and chocolate pieces in a microwave proof bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts until both the chocolate and butter melt. Stir together then leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Once the chocolate has cooled, whisk the eggs and the sugar together in a large bowl until the mixture is fluffy and doubled in volume.
  • Gently fold in the cooled chocolate.

  • Sift in the flour, baking powder and cocoa.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips, being careful not to lose too much air from the mix.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared tin and spread to the edges.

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the middle is set and the top of the brownies is slightly crusty. (If the middle is still wobbly then leave in the oven for a few more minutes.)
  • Leave to cool in the pan before slicing.
  • Enjoy!
