Bohemian Brownies

20121222-195559.jpg

I often get asked for a good brownie recipe and I’m always a little stuck as to which one to recommend. Brownies for me need to be super quick to make, extremely chocolatey, have a slighty crispy outside and a chewy, gooey middle. I love putting pecans in mine, but I know this is a no go area for some people, so the alternative is to add some milk chocolate chopped up or dried sour cherries where the nuts should be! This recipe is a combination of two recipes that I usually make …hopefully you will give this one a go and let me know if its to your liking or maybe you have a better one to share?

You will need to make your Bohemian Brownies

110g (4ozs) butter

110g ( 4ozs) plain chocolate

110g (4ozs) caster sugar

110g (4ozs) soft brown sugar

2 beaten eggs

85g (3ozs) plain flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

25g (1oz) cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

110g (4ozs) chopped pecans or milk chocolate or dried sour cherries

How to make your Bohemian Brownies

1. Preheat oven to 180°c/350°f/gas mark 4

2. Grease and line a shallow oblong tin18x28cm (7×11 inches).

3. Break the plain chocolate into pices and put in a heatproof bowl along with the cubed butter. Melt together in the microwave or over a simmering pan of water. If using the microwave, take care not to over heat and stir after a minute to check how its doing.

4. Add all the other ingredients to the melted chocolate/ butter mixture and stir well. Pour into your greased tin and spread out evenly. Place in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes.

5. Let the mixture cool in the tin for10minutes, it will sink a little. Then cut into squares and cool them on a wire rack. Store in a air tight tin.

  2. We had some of your fabulous White Chocolate and Raspberry Brownies at one of Duncan’s Beekeeping weekends. My husband is nagging me to make some, Is the recipe available?
    Many thanks, Sara

    • Hi Sara, yes it is. Just add some raspberries and chunks of white chocolate into the end mix. Don’t over mix them otherwise the raspberries will break . Enjoy!

  3. Hey Fi, this looks fabulous, but what is even more fabulous is that I actually have your daughter Maisie here, the Brownie Queen with these absolutely heavenly looking real brownies made to your recipe but I have to say, your daughter has made a slight tweak of the cooking time, reducing it by 5mins to get the lovely gooey texture!!

    Merci beaucoup,
    ……xxxx
