Chocolate Brownie

This recipe is the 'Famous Dio Brownie' from the Dio school cafeteria.  Chris made it at the weekend.
It is very good and especially chewy.

You will need

  • 300g butter
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 150c (fanbake).  Grease and line a 21cm x 30cm tin.  Melt the butter and cocoa and add the vanilla and brown sugar.

Beat in the eggs one at a time.

Mix in the flour

and add the chocolate chips.

Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for (it says 25mins) but it takes at least an hour in my oven.  Keep an eye on it, it should be firm to the touch on the edges and still soft in the middle.

When cool, cut into whatever size you like.  Dust with  icing sugar or  cocoa  powder.
