Welcome to the first installment of our Famished Fridays recipe series! On the first Friday of every month we’ll be bringing you a delicious recipe to tickle those taste buds and inspire your inner chef. And what better way to start than with these simple yet decadent chocolate fudge brownies, because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a chocolate treat?
Prep time: Less than 30 minutes
Cooking time: 30 - 40 minutes
Yield: 20 brownies
Dietary: Suitable for vegetarians
- 8oz unsalted butter
- 1lb superfine sugar
- 5oz dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- 5 free-range medium eggs
- 4oz all-purpose flour
- 2oz cocoa powder
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or more if you prefer!)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 20 x 30cm (8 x 12in) baking pan with parchment paper and grease with a little butter.
Add the butter, sugar and chocolate to a large saucepan and on a medium heat, stir until melted.
Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes. Then whisk in the eggs.
Sift in the flour, cocoa powder and salt and then stir until combined. Be careful not to overmix as this will give the brownies a more cake-like consistency.
Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 30 - 40 minutes, depending on how moist or firm you like your brownies.
Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the tin. Once cooled, remove the brownies from the tin and cut them into squares.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!
Store the leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container or wrap with plastic wrap for up to 3 days.
