Best brownies ever - a recipe

Yesterday Eva told me that she volunteered to bring brownies to her class party today.
I told her that I am volunteering her to make them.

Isn't it lovely when kids get bigger?

Although they maybe shouldn't do it quite so quickly....

Anyway, this brownie recipe (from a Marie Claire book) is absolutely delicious!
Crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside and full of chocolate!

I had to give myself a serious pep talk before being able to surrender them to her this morning.

Here is what you need:

250 g (9 oz) of butter
325 g (1.5 cups) of sugar
90 g (3/4 cups) of cocoa powder
4 tablespoons flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt
4 eggs
125 g (1 cup) of chopped nuts (opitional)
200 g (1 1/3 cups) of chopped chocolate

Sugar addict...

Preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F). Grease and line a 23 cm (9 in) square cake tin.
Then melt the butter with the sugar, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
Sift the flour, baking powder, cacao and salt into a bowl.
Make a well in the center and add th e butter sugar mix. Stir it in, then stir in the 4 eggs.
Add the nuts and the chocolate bits and bake for about 25 minutes.


 I can't even reprimand her for that, seeing that I am often doing the same...



Will it be good?

Oh yes!


Enjoy (or hand over to your child :-) ).

A lovely day to you!

  1. WOW! Cool pics! Looks like letting go is getting easier on you ;-) Eva did a great job!
    xxxxxxx and a biiiiiiig hug

  2. What a great post. I adored the pictures of Eva. She is a stunner. It looks like you both had a lot of fun baking together.

  3. Lieben Dank für die "gramm"-Angaben im Rezept.
    Bei dem Outfit werde ich doch ein wenig neidisch. Hier hat es heute geschneit-so schön, pünktliche zum Nikolaus. Aber ohne Schal, Handschuhe und Mütze geht es eigentlich nicht..
    Sei lieg gegrüßt!

  4. Looks delish! Of all the fancy desserts in the world, brownies are still my very favorite.
