Fudge Brownies

If you’re looking for a little warmth to insulate your body, or a reason for your fat cells to rejoice with joy, try these brilliant brownies. There’s only one condition: guiltless enjoyment when you devour them!

You will need:

  • 185g of semi-sweet chocolate chips, or milk chocolate chips for those with a sweet tooth,
  • 185g of unsalted butter (cut in pieces)
  • 3 eggs, at room temperature,
  • 1tsp of vanilla extract,
  • 1 cup of caster sugar,
  • ¾ cup of all-purpose flour,
  • Pecan Nuts (optional)
  • Sea salt (to top)

Steps:

  1. In a medium saucepan, add water to fill 1/3 of the pan and bring to a simmer.
  2. In a heat-safe bowl, add the butter and chocolate chips, and set over the saucepan with the simmering water.
  3. Wait for the chocolate chips and butter to melt, forming a silky chocolate sauce.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract.
  5. Add the cooled chocolate mixture to the mixed egg and sugar mixture.
  6. Sift in the flour, and fold to combine. At this stage, you may also fold in the nuts.
  7. Transfer the brownie mixture to a square or rectangular baking pan lined with parchment paper. Instead of parchment paper, you can case the pan with butter and coat the butter layer lightly with flour.
  8. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20-30 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius, just until the layer of the batter forms a light cracked crust.
  9. After removing from the oven, leave to cool and cut in square pieces.
  10. Serve with a little sprinkle of sea salt and enjoy!
