Chocolate Walnut Brownies

I’ve made these once before and they were so incredibly delicious that I had to make them again! But this time I’m going to share the recipe with you lucky people, and encourage you to sweeten up your Friday night with these irrisitable chocolate treats!

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that when it comes to making food, one of the most important factors is that it is as fuss free as possible. If I don’t have to trek out for ingredients and it leaves me with little cleaning up, then I’m in! The great thing about these brownies is that they are neither time-consuming or difficult to make.

What you’ll need:

400g caster sugar, 225g melted butter, 60g cocoa powder, 3 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 225g plain flour, handful of walnut halves. You’ll probably already have most of this in your cupboard.

Start off by pre-heating your oven to 180 degrees celsius. In a mixing bowl, throw in all the ingredients and give the mixture a good, thorough stir until it looks like one big bowl of chocolatey heaven.

Pour this mix into a 23x33cm greased baking tin and bake for 20 minutes. I just use whatever baking tin is available but the deeper the tin, the longer you have to bake them. After you’ve taken them out, leave them for a while to set. Whilst you’re waiting for them bake, you could spoon out the remainder of the mixture from the bowl and enjoy. (Everyone knows that the best part of baking is eating the mixture right?)

Because brownies are so simple, it’s fun to get creative and add your own ingredients into the mix. I love walnuts because they add an earthy flavour, which is perfect for this time of year. Perhaps when Christmas approaches you could add cranberries, or dust them over with some icing sugar.
