Not that I’m counting. My nerves are though. Three days to go until my work at my current job ends. In light of this I decided to bake…. Not that I need any excuse to bake.
Today’s spoils included chewy flapjack, chocolate orange muffins, lemon drizzle cake and gooey chocolate brownies. All tried and tested by Rob, who has wisely given them the seal of approval. Evidently trying the produce is a must according to him before I fall through works doors with a shed load of baked goods tomorrow and force feed my team mates. I actually cant wait to start my detox tomorrow.
185g Dark Chocolate
275g Golden Caster Sugar
85g Plain Flour
50g Milk Chocolate
50g White Chocolate
Quick and easy this one, but really not for the fainthearted. Melt the butter, chocolate and sugar together in a large saucepan continually stirring so the chocolate doesn’t catch. In a bowl, mix the sugar, flour and the 3 eggs. Make sure it’s mixed in completely.
I used ordinary chocolate, so popped it in a plastic sandwich bag and smashed the hell out of it. Choc chips work just as well, but I think there is something charming about finding a massive chunk of chocolate in a bite size bit of brownie. Melt. On. The. Tongue. Good.
Add the chocolate chunks to the flour mix and pour over the chocolate and butter mixture and incorporate well. Mix until smooth and glossy. Pour this in to a lined baking tray and bake for around 30 mins in a 170ish oven. Keep an eye on it. If you want to serve it as a dessert its great a little more on the gooey side, add a little vanilla ice cream and enjoy. I’m serving mine as a treat to nibble for my work friends tomorrow. I left them in 5 minutes longer for a little extra set. They’ve turned out extra fudgy and devilishly delicious.
Happy baking lovers,
