After looking through numerous recipes for brownies, I came across one that impressed me by the gooey topping that you coat over the top to the brownie. I found this on the BBC’s GoodFood website, titled ‘Alex’s Mega Brownies’. The recipe claims to make between 16 and 20 servings, depending on the size of the cut brownie squares. They can be small, appetising snacks or larger desserts. The method is very easy to follow; I chose it so it would be easy for me to bake with my younger brother and sister. Complicated recipes are no fun for them.
100g unsalted butter
175g caster sugar
2 large eggs
50g cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of baking powder
3 tablespoons of milk
4 tablespoons mixed white and milk chocolate chips
100g milk chocolate
75g full-fat soft cheese
Heat your oven to 180°c so it’s hot enough for when you want to bake the brownie.
Line a 20cm square tin, or a tin of a similar size, with butter or grease-proof paper.
Beat the butter and sugar together with a whisk.
Add the eggs one by one and whisk the mixture together.
Sift in the flour, cocoa powder and milk and whisk all of the mixture together. You can use an ordinary or electric whisk – it doesn’t really matter.
Spoon the mixture into the tin evenly.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes but keep checking them before hand so they don’t burn. To check if the brownie is done, poke a knife into different points in the brownie and if there’s no mixture on the knife when you pull it out, it’s done.
Melt the chocolate and mix with soft cheese
Spread over cooled brownies
