Sinful Sunday Recipe #1 - Sexy Brownies

It's Sunday and for many of us that means either hangovers (I'm luckily not in that category today) or relaxation. Either way Sunday makes for a good day for a little bit of sin... in the kitchen....
I'm talking recipes. There's nothing better than cooking up something really delicious. If you share it with someone special or enjoy it all by yourself is up to you, but Sinful Sunday Recipes will be a regular on the blog as I've got a few up my sleeve!
This weeks recipe is for Sexy Brownies. The good thing about them is that you can put almost anything in them. Once I tried Nutella and Peanut Butter a long side chocolate bits. They were amazing! Snickers, M&M's, various nuts, white chocolate... play with it! For maximum pleasure bake them minimum 6 hours before you want to eat them.
Sexy Brownies
  • 200 g butter (7 oz.)
  • 200 g dark chocolate (at least 55% cocoa) (7 oz.)
  • 125 g flour (4 ½ oz.)
  • 3 eggs
  • 265 g sugar (9 oz.)
  • real cocoa powder (dark)
  • ½ tea spoon salt (a bit more if the butter is unsaltet)
  • 125 g walnuts (4 ½ oz.) (optional)
Melt the butter and half the chocolate seperately. Whip the flour, eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla together until it's a nice, even and airy texture. Poor in the meltet butter slowly and mix it together. Gently stir in the meltet chocolate and as much cocoa powder you want (the more you put in the more it will dominate the taste. Make sure not to over-do it as that will taste bitter). Chop up the walnuts and the other half of the chocolate into chunky pieces and put them in.
Bake it in ½ a roasting pan for 18 min. at 200 degrees Celcius (392 degrees Fahrenheit). Don't bake it for longer as it will continue baking a little while after in the hot pan (the center will be fluid while hot). When it's cooled off you can cut out pieces and put in the fridge to harden them a bit more. Serve with ice cream and/or fresh berries for a greater sinful pleasure.
