Who doesn’t love a good Brownie? I always follow the same recipe, which was once given to me by a former teacher – probably around 20 years ago.
I haven’t made Brownies for quite a while and came across the recipe in my notes the other week…so it was finally time for a round of Brownies :).
The recipe is so easy, even children could make it, and it doesn’t need any fancy ingredients. Why don’t you give it a try on the weekend? I’ve written it down for you below :).
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius
- Mix the four ingredients below well together
145g butter, melted
1 egg yolk
- add the following ingredients to the mix
70g creme fraiche
1tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
170g good quality melted chocolate
80g chopped nuts
- grease a brownie form and put the mixture in
- bake for around 20 minutes or a bit longer until the brownies are baked but not dry!
I just had the idea that I might make them again in the next couple of weeks and add some wintery spices – that could be the perfect pre-christmas-treat :).
I’m glad I decided to make these again because they really are delicious and I also love to use old, hand-written recipes that are already full of stains and greasy finger prints. Do you have any of these hand-written notes that you use over and over again?
