Yes, it’s a real thing and it should definitely be celebrated. Here’s a recipe for delicious chewy chocolate brownies from our friends at BBC GoodFood.
Prep: 15 mins Cook: 25 mins
You will need:
- 185g unsalted butter
- 185g best dark chocolate
- 85g plain flour
- 40g cocoa powder
- 50g white chocolate
- 50g milk chocolate
- 3 large eggs
- 275g golden caster sugar
- Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 20cm square tin.
- Cut 185g unsalted butter into smallish cubes and break 185g best dark chocolate into small pieces and drop into a bowl. Cover and microwave for 2 mins.
- In a medium bowl, break 3 large eggs into a large bowl and tip in 275g golden caster sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the eggs and sugar until they look thick and creamy, like a milkshake.
- Add the cooled melted chocolate and fold gently, careful to keep air in the mixture.
- Now tip 85g plain flour and 40g cocoa powder into a sieve held over the egg mixture, and fold in gently.
- Finally, with a large sharp knife, chop 50g white chocolate and 50g milk chocolate into small chunks and stir in the chocolate chunks until they’re dotted throughout.
- Spread the mix evenly into the prepared tin.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven or until edges are firm.
- Let the brownies cool before cutting into squares.
- Serve and enjoy!
