Have had this recipe hanging around for nearly a year now and today I made them for the first time. Boy, are they good. I can not recommend them enough.
The recipe says to use Castor sugar, but I had none, so used dark brown sugar instead. I also just used dark choc pieces instead of white. But hey, you have a fiddle too and see what you can come up with. I shall be making them again this week and trying a different combo.
Here's the original recipe given to me by Heather (Hevz) of Violets Pantry.
100g/4oz butter 50g/2oz cocoa powder (I use Green and Blacks) 2 eggs 225g/8oz caster sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract 50g/2oz self-raising flour 50g/2oz white chocolate chips (I usually use choc chunks, they're bigger)
1-Preheat oven to 180c/350f/gas 4
2-Take a shallow baking tin, approx 23cm/9inch square, and line the bottom with non-stick liner or baking parchment (very important you do this).
3-Melt the butter, then add the cocoa powder, stirring well to remove any lumps (I use my mini whisk)
4-Beat the eggs in a large bowl, add the sugar and mix until smooth.
5-Stir in the cocoa mixture, white choc chunks and the vanilla extract and mix well.
6-Add the flour and mix gently with a spoon, be careful not to over mix.
7-Pour mixture into the lined baking tin and place in the middle of the oven for about 25 mins.
When done the brownies should be crisp on top and soft in the middle. Leave to cool for 10 mins in the tin before turning out onto a board and then cutting into squares.
Now, here's a piccie of mine before dusting of icing sugar and one after.
