Perfect brownies

I love to bake and can turn my hand to most cakes, biscuits and sweet treats, but, I have never had the greatest success with brownies. I’m not sure why; despite following recipes to the letter, my previous attempts have been too dry, too gooey or just simply not good so I stopped trying. Until now!

I found a recipe that not only claimed to be super-easy but also made the “perfect brownie”, so I gave it a go. And oh my, they were good! I so highly recommend this recipe.

The recipe is indeed very simple: melt some dark and white chocolate with some butter; whisk up the eggs and some muscovado sugar; stir the chocolate mixture in; fold in the flour and baking powder; pour into a tin and bake. Et voilĂ !

I followed the recipe owner’s advice on her blog for cutting the perfect brownie… I left the bake to cool completely in the tin, then popped it in the fridge for a few hours before slicing it up. The brownies are so sticky that being completely chilled stops the sharp knife from getting stuck.

Now, be warned! These brownies are utterly delicious and seriously moreish, but incredibly rich too, so restrain yourself from eating too many in one go!
