Did someone say oreo? and then brownies? A winning combination, am I right?
I used the 'best ever chocolate brownies recipe' from BBC GoodFood. I often use this recipe when brownie baking, and I have to say, it never disappoints. Also, the original recipe doesn't call for Oreos, but its Friday and we wanna live a little. I also switched some of the caster sugar out for brown sugar, it just gives it that little bit of extra fudgy goodness.
Makes 9 BIG BROWNIES
Ready in 40 minutes
I N G R E D I E N T S
150g butter (I used goats to make it dairy free)
150g dark chocolate
80g plain flour
45g cocoa powder
100g dark chocolate (cut into chunks)
200g caster sugar
75g light brown sugar
- preheat the oven to 180c fan or 160c with no fan.
- first, you want to melt the chocolate and butter together in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Once melted, leave to cool in the bowl.
- then whisk together the sugars and eggs until pale and creamy.
- once the chocolate mixture has cooled, pour it into the foamy mixture and fold together gently.
- then sieve in the flour and cocoa powder and mix again
- fold through the chunks of chocolate and the mix is ready
- line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper
- pour the mixture into the baking tin and spread out to create an even layer.
- press the full oreos into the top of the mixture, then bake for 28 minutes.
- I like to check the brownies after 25 by giving them a little wobble. If the centre still seems jiggly, they're not quite ready.
- once baked, leave to cool in the tin (I even place them into the fridge when almost cooled, to help with the slicing.
- slice into 9 extra large gooey brownies and enjoy!
