One of the most delicious brownies you will ever taste. Deliciously chewy and chocolate with that lovely crisp edge which is so characteristic of a chocolate brownie. Packed full of good old fashioned nourishing ingredients, these brownies are sure to nourish your body and soul. My lovely friend Emma found this gem of a recipe mentioned by Cliff. I hope this digestible snack will become a family staple in your home, just as much as it is in ours.
from the pantry
2 eggs (from pastured chooks)
1 cup of organic cane sugar
1/2 cup cocoa – dutch process (see kitchen notes)
2 tablespoons of melted butter
a pinch of sea salt
PREHEAT oven to 180′C
LINE baking tray with some baking paper
PLACE all ingredients together in a bowl and whisk until combined
POUR into prepared baking tray
BAKE for about 12 minutes until the edges are firm when pocked with a knife
REMOVE from oven and allow to rest for about 15 minutes (if you can resist!)
ENJOY with spoonfuls of cream or homemade ice cream
:: Increasing the amount of butter in the recipe will increase its gooeyness (is there such a word?!) I have made with up to 4 tablespoons of butter to achieve a rather yummy gooey brownie. Experiment to find what you like best!
:: I have switched from using raw cacao to simply dutch process cocoa – since reading quite a bit on why raw cacao isn’t the superfood it is talked up to be, great article from Georgia (Stirring Change) here and The Nutrition Coach here. When buying dutch process cocoa, check the ingredients to ensure you are buying only cocoa; as some of the brands contain artificial flavours.
:: when buying cream, especially thickened cream, again check the ingredients to (hopefully) find only “cream” – ironically I find the more expensive brands in the supermarket actually contain vegetable gums and other things I’d rather not be consuming.
