How to be a domestic goddess…kind of.

February 18, 2010

With half term upon us my good friend Emily and I decided now was the right time to bake some chocolate brownies. However they tasted so good we’ve decided to share the experience with you in the form of a photo-recipe-journal thing.  Bon appétit!


As an aside, The recipe is based on a creation within Jamie Oliver’s cookbook ‘Cook with Jamie’.

You will need the following…

250g unsalted butter
200g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
80g   cocoa powder, sifted.
65g   plain flour, sifted.
1 tsp baking powder.
350g caster sugar.
4 large eggs.

Before starting preheat the oven to 180°C and line a rectangular baking tin with greaseproof paper.

Step 1.

Melt the chocolate in a large bowl over simmering water.


Step 2

Once melted, add the butter and stir until it is melted.


Step 3

Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder into a bowl and add the sugar.

Step 4

Add the melted chocolate and butter mixture to the dry ingredients.

Step 5

Break and beat the eggs.

Step 6

Add them into the mixture until you have a silky consistency. (Glass of wine optional; Emily)


Step 7

Pour the brownie mix into the baking tray and place in the oven for 25 minutes.


Step 8

Wash up!

Step 9

When cooked the brownies will be slightly springy on the outside but gooey in the middle.

Place them on a tray to cool.

Enjoy! (Om nom nom)
