struth, how does one find a thread from a year ago. And why?

Chef_ruby2shoes, Jul 19, 6:31 pm

Beats me. how or why would you even search for it?

Chef_lodgelocum, Jul 19, 6:33 pm

So many brownie recipies. made Chelsea Winter's one; great. Gwenyth Paltrow's one, also good but very different to other recipies i.e. no eggs, no butter. Very fudgy. Nom nom nom

chi-chi, I wondered when I posted earlier if you needed/wanted the recipe but assumed that you must have written it down as you watched. Anyway here's the recipe for you now.


Makes about 30 pieces.

2 cups chopped dates
1 tsp baking soda
¾ cup boiling water
200g finely diced butter, at room temperature
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups caster sugar
1 cup dark cocoa, sifted
1 cup flour
½ tsp baking powder
250g chocolate chips or dark chocolate, cut into small chunks

Preheat oven to 160°C and line a 30cm x 24cm slice tin with baking paper.
Put dates in a large bowl, add baking soda and boiling water and stir to combine. Add finely diced butter and stir until melted. Leave to stand for 20 minutes.
Mash softened dates with a fork to break them up to a creamy consistency. Stir in the eggs and vanilla until well combined. Stir in the sugar, then add the cocoa, flour and baking powder and stir until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips or chunks.
Smooth into prepared tin and bake until it is set in the middle and begins to come away from the sides of the tin (about 50 minutes).
Cool before cutting into squares.
Stored in a sealed container it will keep for a couple of weeks. :-))

Here it is if anyone else wants it :)

Chef_spunkeymonkey, Aug 18, 6:42 pm

made me come and look and now have another recipe to try thanks

This one is from my Dutch cocoa shippers - it is really really nice. (calorie-free too! - yeah right!). It is very simple to make.


250g butter, melted but not too hot

440g sugar

4 free range eggs, at room temperature

1/2 cup of sifted 21% fat Dutch cocoa

2tsp vanilla extract

250g dark (70% cocoa solids) chocolate, chips or cut into small chunks
(Whittakers have some excellent high cocoa solids chocolate bars)

2/3 cup sifted flour

Preheat oven to 150°C set to fan bake. Combine butter, sugar, eggs, cocoa and vanilla together. Only just fold through chocolate and flour. Lightly grease a baking tin (20cm x 30cm) lined with baking paper. Spread in mixture and bake until an even crust has formed on the top (it’s going to take 50-60 minutes). Let it cool completely in it the tin. Turn out and wrap in foil only cutting as required.
