    Default Anyone got a good Chocolate Brownie recipe?

    Have the sudden urgent desire to make brownies and would you belive it, out of all my vast array of cookbooks - not one decent recipe!
    So come on all you chocoholics out there, help me out. - Preferably in pounds and ounces as I am a bit of an Imperial Girl
    Thanks in dribbly anticiapation!

    Here ya go can't get much better than this
    Very Chocolaty Brownies

    250g unsalted butter
    200g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
    80g cocoa powder
    65g plain flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    360g castor sugar
    4 lge eggs

    Lined 25cm square tin
    Oven 180C/350F/gas mark 4

    Melt chocolate and butter together and mix until smooth.
    In a separate bowl sieve together cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar.
    Add this to the chocolate mix and stir together well.
    Beat the eggs and mix in till smooth.
    Pour into tin and cook for 25mins till springy on top and still gooey inside.
    Do not overcook; you do not want the skewer to come out clean.

    Sorry it's not in Lbs and ozs . I'm sure there's a converter in one of your cook books.

    I use Delia's recipe from her Xmas book.

    If you don't like nuts this one is Chocolate and Prune, though I've done that one with frozen black cherries instead and left out the almonds.

    Have you tried Nigella's Rocky Road? Seriously chocolatety!!

    BBC - Food - Recipes: Christmas rocky road

    It's like a chocolate biscuit cake - anyone remember the Blue Peter one they did years ago in the 60s? My Dad always made it for birthdays when I was much much younger, sigh!

    Sticky Chocolate Brownies.

    100g butter
    175g caster sugar
    75g muscavado sugar
    125g dark chocolate(I usually use a whole 150g bar)
    1tbs golden syrup.
    2 eggs
    1tsp vanilla extract
    100g plain flour
    2tbs cocoa powder and 1/2 tsp baking powder.

    Melt the butter,sugars,chocolate and syrup over a medium heat.
    Allow to cool a little and beat in the eggs and vanilla.
    Fold in the flour and pour into greased tin.(I use a stone and you don't have to grease...comes out easy)

    Cook for about 25 mins at 180. until the top is slightly crispy and the sides come away from the pan....it's meant to be sticky inside so the knife test doesn't really work.
    the fates lead him who will;him who won't they drag.

    Thanks everyone! They all look really good. Am thinking of "tweaking" a recipe by swirling peanut butter through the mix! I really shouldn't be contemplating doing this as I know I'll end up eating most of 'em. I'll let you know how they go once I've come out of the chocolate-induced coma!

    Just to warn you that the recipe I sent you can add extras but it seems to detract from the chocolateyness of it. I think it's a Jamie receep.
