WHAT MAKES THE PERFECT BROWNIE?


Brownies are best when they are dense and fudgy with a rich intense chocolate taste.

The Nutella spread really helps to achieve this texture and flavour. The very top however, should have a nice thin crispness, making cutting easier.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING BROWNIES


Don't over bake the brownies, otherwise they will lose their dense fudgy texture. Keep checking the brownies so this doesn't happen. I suggest checking every few minutes after 35 minutes in the oven.

Add a handful of chopped hazelnuts for added texture and crunch. Some raisins would give the brownies a lovely fruity contrast too. Or if you wanted a double chocolate hit, a handful of white chocolate chips!

Feel free to replace the Nutella with any brand of chocolate hazelnut spread.

Chocolate and Butter

Place the chocolate pieces and butter in a microwaveable bowl and heat in the microwave until melted.

I usually heat in 20 second bursts, stirring in between in order to avoid burning the chocolate.

Melted chocolate and butter

Let the melted chocolate mixture cool slightly before beating in the Nutella spread. Make sure it's all combined thoroughly.

Nutella added to the Nutella Brownie mix

In another bowl whisk the eggs and sugar for 3 minutes until you have a pale light mixture, then stir this into the melted chocolate mix. Add the vanilla extract at this point as well.

Next, weigh the flour and cocoa out in a bowl. There is no need to sift the flour for brownies as they should be dense and fudgy and not light and airy.

Flour and Cocoa Powder

Stir the flour and cocoa into the brownie mix, making sure there are no visible signs of the flour left.

Flour and cocoa mixed into the Nutella Brownie batter

Pour the brownie batter into a prepared 20cm square tin and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes. I suggest checking after 35 minutes.

Once the brownies are out of the oven let them cool completely before cutting into squares.

CAN YOU FREEZE BROWNIES?


Brownies freeze really well, so why not make a double batch and freeze half for another day?

To freeze, cool the cooked brownies in the tin but DO NOT cut into squares. When cool, wrap the brownie in a layer of clingfilm, then in a layer of foil and place in the freezer for up to three months.

Take out of the freezer to defrost 24 hours before you need them. Sometimes it's easier to cut them into squares when they are still a little bit frozen.
