Sunday Baking Project: Quick Chocolate Brownies

I have a confession.  I like brownies on their own.  I do.  But I don't see the point in making them unless you're going to have them with icecream.  And these my friends - are PERFECT mashed into blue ribbon vanilla.  If you're daring, swirl through some peanut butter too.   Just don't blame me for ruining your diet because it is THAT good.  It is.

No mixer required, in fact it turns out better if you don't use a mixer at all.

1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
125 grams butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 large eggs
1 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 180 degrees c

Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder into a medium sized mixing bowl

Melt butter in a saucepan and mix the sugar in until fully melted/combined

Pour the butter/sugar mix into the dry ingredients and mix with wooden spoon until all combined.  Add eggs, walnuts, vanilla and stir until totally combined.

Pour into tin/pan greased and lined with baking paper, bake for 30-40 minutes until top is crunchy.

Leave to cool for 20-30 minutes and then cut into desired squares.
Dust with icing sugar and store in airtight container for up to 5 days (I put mine in the fridge or freezer, they last longer)

I agree - brownies MUST be served with ice cream, and all the better when mixed in. Mmmmmmm.
