Actually my little sous baker had been requesting these for quite some time, except I never had the courage to attempt something like this. I prefer cakes, cookies, jellies, and puffy things. A brownie is like a block of chocolate, well, almost.
75 grams butter softened
1/2 cup baking cocoa (unsweetened)
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/3 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup white choc bits
- Preheat oven to 160 degree Celsius. Line a 9cm x 14cm x 3 cm (approx.) tin with baking paper.
- Melt butter and stir in baking cocoa, allow to cool slightly. Beat in eggs. Stir in sugar and vanilla.
- Sift flour and baking powder together. Add to mixture and stir thoroughly. Stir in white choc bits. Pour mixture into tin.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes or until firm when pressed in centre. Leave in tin to cool for 20 minutes before removing. Allow to completely cool then cut into bars.
