Homemade Chocolate Brownies

As most of you know I’m not that fond of baking, but I love to treat myself at the bakery once in a while. However, some baking recipes can be so easy that you really don’t need to be a top chef with restaurant insurance to make them, and they are also crowd pleasing. One of these is homemade chocolate brownies, which can be nicer than bought in the shop as you get the delicious smell around your house, the warmth and satisfaction of baking it yourself. Your kids will also enjoy baking (and eating) them too! If you are interested in making these, then read on.

The ingredients you’ll need to make between 6-8 chocolate brownies are
100g plain flower
100g butter
175g caster sugar
75g muscovado sugar or brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
125g chocolate
½ tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoon cocoa powder

How I prepared it -
1. Preheat the oven to gas 4/180c/fan 160ci and grease and line a 20cm cake tin/baking tray.
2. Place the golden syrup, chocolate, brown sugar, butter and caster sugar in the pan and melt on a low heat until its lump free and smooth.
3. Once smooth, remove the pan off the heat.
4. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk until frothy and light.
5. Next, add the vanilla extract, eggs, baking powder, flour and cocoa powder to the chocolate mixture and mix thoroughly.
6. Put the mixture into the greased cake tin/baking tray and place in the middle of the oven for about 25-30 minutes.
7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 15-20 minutes before cutting into 6/8 portions (be careful of little hands that are eager to eat them!).
8. Your brownies are now ready to serve!i
You could serve the yummy brownies with cream or ice cream and lots of fresh fruit!
