375g unsalted butter
375g dark chocolate
6 large eggs
500g caster sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
225g plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
walnuts, chocolate chunks or whatever else you want to put in them!
You can use any kind of ovenproof dish like a pyrex or a cake tin for these – rectangular is best roughly 30cm x 20cm but if yours is a bit bigger that's ok.
Line the base with baking paper – makes it easier to get the brownies out.
Put butter cut into chunks and chocolate broken up into a saucepan and leave on a gentle heat to slowly melt.
In a large bowl or jug mix eggs, sugar and vanilla together.
Stir chocolate mix into egg mix gently then add flour and stir again until combined.
Pour into dish / tin and if you like nuts or chocolate chunks in your brownies sprinkle them over the top then bake at gas 4 / 180ºc
Start checking them after 25 minutes. Brownies don't rise a lot they just set so you are looking for a pale crackly top with a bit of a wobble in the centre. If the whole mix is firm you will have dry brownies. If there is a lot of runny mixture leave for another 5 minutes.
Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the tin.
Cut into small squares they are very rich and serve with Glenisk Organic Cream or Creme Fraiche.
