There is no getting away from it… I do love Chocolate.
I have probably been secretly on a mission to find the best brownie recipe for years and I think I may
have just uncovered it…. I have adapted this recipe from a leaflet from Leiths in London and transformed it into a Thermomix Brownie recipe.
I made a batch this morning when I knew we had a load of kids coming over and I managed to save a few pieces to enjoy after the mad rush! Quite delicious.
As I made them in the Thermomix, it was so easy. The chocolate and butter are melted at exactly 70 degrees and the other ingredients simply weighed directly, in using the inbuilt scales. One bowl, no mess!
Definitely my go to Brownie recipe now. Please let me know what you think.
I am already thinking about a salted caramel version possibly for next time….
- 200g good quality dark chocolate ( or you can use 150g dark and 50g milk choc as I do for kids)
- 140g unsalted butter
- 225g caster sugar
- 2 large eggs ( or 3 smaller)
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- 80g plain flour
- Preheat oven to 170 deg c.
- Line a square tin 20cm x 20cm with non stick bake paper, slightly up the sides too.
- Weight the chocolate into the Thermomix mixing bowl.
- Chop 1 min / speed 5
- Weigh in the butter and melt together for 4 min / 70 deg / speed 2
- Add sugar, eggs and vanilla, mix 1 min / speed 2
- Add flour, mix 30 sec / speed 1, scrape down bowl and mix further 30 sec / speed 1
- Using a soft spatula, scrape the mix into the prepared tin.
- Bake for 20 min, leave to cool in the tin. Then cut into 16-20 slices.
- It should be lovely and fudgy when you cut it. .
