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
125 g (1 cup) of chopped nuts (opitional)
200 g (1 1/3 cups) of chopped chocolate
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?
Enjoy (or hand over to your child :-) ).
A lovely day to you!
