Brownies are a special American treat. They are not biscuits, cookies or cakes, they are brownies. they have a unique texture, a bit squidgy in the middle, not too crisp or dry, just right. Everyone has their own special Brownie recipe and the best ones are often safely guarded family secret recipes. After a lot of trial and error to get the perfect squidginess this is mine, I hope you like it.
3 eggs, lightly beaten
100g plain flour
Heat the oven to 180.
Line a 20cm square cake tin with greaseproof paper.
Melt the chocolate and the butter in a saucepan over very low heat.
Remove from the heat and quickly mix in the beaten eggs then the sugar and lastly the flour and the vanilla essence.
Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 30 minutes.
Let cool completely in the tin and then cut into 16 squares.
Leave over night if possible and then serve dusted with icing sugar.
Friday evening is the best time to make these Brownies. They will only improve over the weekend and you will be able to share them with friends and family because otherwise you may regret having made them by Monday morning.
Beat well until thick and glossy.
