Brownie Recipe

Apologies for tardiness and all that.

OK, here we go, a recipe for some truly delicious brownies. The recipe is originally from that arbiter of hip, Prima:

2zo/50g plain choccie
4oz/125g butter
3 eggs, separated
7oz/200g caster sugar
2oz/50g plain flour
1tsp/5ml baking powder
Pinch of salt
2oz/5og pecan pieces
7in/18cm square cake tine, greased and lined

Preheat the oven to Mark 4/350f/180c.

Melt choccie and butter in pan, then leave to cool slightly

Place the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and mix well.

Stir in the melted choccie mixture.

Fold in the flour, baking powder, salt and pecans.

Whisk the egg whites until stiff, and then fold them into the mixture.

Pour into cake tin and bake for 30-40 minutes.

Leave to cool, and then turn out of tin.

Cut up. (It says you get 16 brownies out the mixture. Ha! I get ten reasonably sized ones.)


In the photo that accompanies the recipe, there are only ten brownies. So either they were talking out their hat about how many the mixture makes, or the cameraman had been scoffing them. I vote the former. Why do recipe writers do that?

Oh, and originally, the recipe called for walnuts, but I prefer pecans. Each to their own.
