The Best Chocolate Brownies

The Best Chocolate Brownies

This wasn’t the best batch I’ve ever made, but I decided to treat my boyfriend so he can’t complain! This is a recipe that I have been developing for a few years and when done well is (if I am modest) the best brownie I have ever tried! Brownies require a different mentalitly to cakes, they should be still gooey and have some mixture on the knife when cooked and still hot!
So here goes:
100gm bar of Sains basic milk choc
100gm bar of Sains basic white choc
100gm bar of Sains basic dark choc
175gm unsalted butter
3 eggs
1.5 cups caster sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
4 tbsp cocoa powder

-Melt all the dark chocolate and 3/4 of the milk chocolate in a pan on a low heat with the butter cut into chunks, (or in a bain-marie if being really careful!) take care to not burn the chocolate and let it cool slightly before adding the eggs.
-Whisk the eggs and the sugar until thick and creamy. Pour the egg mixture with the cooled melted chocolate and fold in.
-Break the rest of the milk chocolate and all of the white chocolate into chunks and fold into the chocolate mixture.
-Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the chocolatey eggy mix and fold in (trying to keep some air in the mixture)
-Cook at 180 for about 30 mins depending on how deep the mixture is might need longer, stick a knife in the middle to check. You want the knife to have some mixture when pulled out but the mix to be slightly cooked.
Enjoy! 🙂
