You will need…
375g unsalted butter

6 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla essence
500g caster sugar
225g plain flour
1 tsp salt
90g white chocolate
2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
Makes about 20 to 25 depending on size
Here’s what to do…
- Line the base of a 33x23x5cm baking tin with parchment paper.
- Melt butter and dark chocolate together in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Leave to cool
- Whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla together in a bowl until pale., and add to the chocolate mixture.
- Stir in the flour and salt beat to combine and pour into lined tray.
- Bake for 25 minutes at 180C. The top will crack slightly, but the middle should still be wobbly as they will continue to cook as they cool.
- Leave to cool before cutting into squares.
- When ready to serve, drizzle with melted white chocolate and dust with sieved cocoa powder.
There’s nothing worse than a dry brownie so ensure you keep a watch on the cooking time and remove from oven at the right moment.
You can cool the brownies in the fridge to make cutting easier. The aim is to create a dense, and gooey middle to each brownie.
