Here’s a little twist on a classic brownie. As is usual for me it was an ‘experiment’ but this time is went wonderfully well.

Brownies for the grown-ups

Here’s the basic recipe. I added some chopped white chocolate and before cooking I sprinkled with a liberal amount of sea salt. It was a last minute creative flurry and it worked a treat! The salt gives them a lovely edge and of course you can’t possible give them to the children either. Result!

2x100g bars at least 70% dark chocolate

100g white chocolate – chopped into small chunks

150g soft butter

3 eggs

225g caster sugar

100g plain flour

1tps baking powder

1-2 tblsp cocoa powder – depending how chocolately you like them

Pre heat oven to 180, gas mark 4. Melt the chocolate then leave to cool slightly.

Put the eggs in a bowl with the sugar and whisk till thick and creamy. Pour in melted chocolate. Then fold in flour, baking powder and cocoa powder.

Add chopped white chocolate, bung into a greased tin and sprinkle liberally with good quality sea salt.

Bake for 30-40 minutes. Cool for a while then slice into lovely chunks.
