chocolate brownie

Chocolate overload and chewy to boot.




1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt

170g butter, cut in pieces
340g dark chocolate, chopped (must be at least 70% cocoa)
6 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Icing sugar (to decorate)


1   Preheat oven to 175°C. Line a 33 x 22cm pan with foil and grease.

2   Combine flour, cocoa and salt in a bowl and set aside.

3   In a saucepan on low heat, melt butter and chocolates then remove from heat and set aside.

4   In a mixer blend eggs then gradually add sugars. Beat for 10 minutes or until volume has tripled.

5   Fold in chocolate sauce and vanilla then gently fold in the flour mixture. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out almost clean. Cool before cutting into squares. Dust with icing sugar if using.
