Most amazing yet very simple and easy recipe for delicious brownies. Whenever I make them they are invariably accoladed. This is a Nigella Lawson recipe. It is a lovely end to a meal, a piece of brownie along with a scoop of vanilla ice- cream.
- 170g unsalted butter
- 1 70g best-quality bittersweet chocolate
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cups superfine sugar
- 1 /2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup white chocolate buttons
- 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate buttons
- Approximately 2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar, for garnish
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Melt the butter and dark chocolate together in a large heavy based pan over a low heat.
- In a bowl or large measuring jug, beat the eggs together with the superfine sugar and vanilla extract.
- Allow the chocolate mixture to cool a little, then add the egg and sugar mixture and beat well. Fold in the flour and salt. Then stir in the white chocolate buttons or chips, and the semisweet chocolate buttons or chips. Beat to combine then scrape and pour the brownie mixture into the prepared tin.
- Bake for about 35-40 minutes. You can see when the brownies are ready because the top dries to a slightly paler brown speckle, while the middle remains dark, dense and gooey. You do need to keep checking on it: the difference between gooey brownies and dry ones is only a few minutes. Remember, too, that they will continue to cook as they cool.
- To serve, cut into squares while still warm and pile up on a large plate, sprinkling with confectioners’ sugar pushed with a teaspoon through a small sieve.
