bloomin' brilliant brownies. Quite possibly the best Brownie recipe yet!! Follow the instructions! I didn't use any optional extras and only had self raising flour and it all turned out fab. When you've cooked them for the 25 mins leave them to sit for a bit. If you test them with a skewer it will look like they aren't cooked. Its OK!! They will just be nice and gooey when they are cold.
This cake is best made using a food processor, as you can simply add everything and blitz it up together, but you can easily make it by hand if you buy ground almonds and grate the chocolate into the mix. Like most desserts, this isn't exactly the healthiest thing in the world, but it's absolutely gorgeous. Just make sure you enjoy it as it's meant to be enjoyed –a special treat every now and then.
Brownies are absolutely gorgeous. I've used cherries and chestnuts in mine – although it may not seem like the most obvious pairing, the chocolate makes them friends and I think they complement each other well. Arrange on boards or plates around the room for people to pick at
