Recipe: Oreo Brownies

At the request of many, I am sharing with you my never-fail brownie recipe. It’s pretty good, if I may say so myself.

You will need:

275g caster sugar
185g unsalted butter
200g dark chocolate
90g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
10 Oreos
3 medium eggs

Serving: 15-20 (it depends on how generously you slice it up really!)

Preheat your oven to 150°C.

1. Grease and line your baking tray. I grease the tin, place on my baking paper, and then grease the paper. The first coat of grease holds the paper snug to the tin and the second coat stops the brownies sticking to the paper.

2. Break up the chocolate and cut up the butter. Melt it into beautiful chocolatey goo using a bowl over a pot of water or the microwave. Sit it aside to cool.

3. Sieve the flour and cocoa powder onto a plate/spare bowl.

4. Place the eggs and sugar into a bowl. Using an electric whisk, beat them until they go foamy and triple in volume.

5. Add the melted chocolate and butter mixture. Fold in carefully – don’t break the bubbles by stirring like a maniac!

6. Sieve the flour and cocoa powder into your mixture. Sieving it again despite doing it at the start ensures a lovely fluffy brownie.

7. Fold the flour in – again, make sure you don’t burst all the bubbles. Work quickly but gently!

8. Pour the mixture into the tray – try to avoid loads of spooning and scraping (again: watch the bubbles!) and don’t drop the mixture from a height. Tilt the tray to get the mixture into the corners; don’t spread it.

9. Chop up your Oreos – I went for quarters.

10. Scatter the Oreos across the mixture and bake for 15-20mins.

Slice it up and enjoy!

Instead of Oreos, why not try Creme Egg? It is amazing!
