Chocolate Brownie recipe?

rusty-bones, May 18, 2:46am
Are these always a soft texture? Does anyone have a good recipe? My kid's want me to make one but I don't like the texture. But I don't have to eat it do I.

Nigella Lawson's from How to be a Domestic Goddess. Nothing else comes close.

1.1/3 cups white flour, 1 tsp baking pwdr, 1.5 cups sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 4 eggs and 250gm margarine or butter (makes no difference to taste or consitency) Put all into a beater or wizz, and beat until pale in colour and fluffy, then into a paper lined tin and bake for 35-40 mins @ 180. Cooked when it springs back.

If I am feeling generous I put frozen mixed berrys and white chocolate in the centre of this, or sometimes just jam, so put half mixture in then the berrys/jam and put other half of mix on top.
Happy cooking..

My recipe is slightly more *diet friendly* than your mackenzie ... tastes wicked too, and like yourself I only add berries if I'm in a generous mood!!

150g butt
3/4 C cocoa
3 eggs
1 & 1/4 C caster sugar (I use regular sugar with no difference at all)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 flour
1 t baking powder.

Cook at 170 deg C in a lined cake tin for 30-40 mins (less when there's no berries included).
