Tigerlilly Quinn: chocolate brownie recipe

chocolate brownie recipe


Here's the the thing, when I dreamt up and romanticised being a mum I was always the one baking the cakes, cooking three delicious homemade meals from scratch and sewing the costumes for the school play. My SIL bought me a couple of baking books for my 25th birthday (two weeks before Wilf's arrival) and I flicked though them thinking about the delicious treats I would whip up daily in my 1950's kitchen whilst I gleefully played with the baby and made sure there was a chilled beer waiting for my boyfriend on his arrival from work...ha! ;) only part of that is true.. 

In real life the books were used for the first time to make Wilf's first birthday cake and I felt I had accomplished something at least having made at least one cake that year...


Anyway, I digress! 


I've never made brownies before so when I was sent some baking extracts and flavours from Nielsen Massey I thought it would be a good opportunity to give making brownies a go.




Chocolate Brownies

You will need:


150g plain flour

50g  cocoa powder (I use the Green and Blacks one as it is in my opinion the nicest!)
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
one crushed vanilla pod
1/4 teaspoon of salt
250g dark brown sugar
3 free range eggs
2 teaspoons of Nielsen Massey chocolate extract
150g butter

preheat the oven to 180c


Sift flour, cocoa, baking power and salt and set aside


mix butter, sugar and vanilla pod in a mixing bowl and whisk. 


Add eggs one at a time, stir in chocolate extract. 


Sift in dry ingredients and beat well.


line a 9inch (or so) baking tray with non stick paper and spoon over with spatula. 


Bake for 30mins! 



(I actually made these again later in the week and added a little rum to the mix, it was a great addition!) We served it with greek yogurt but ice cream would be a another good accompaniment. 

enjoy!


(we were sent some extracts to try, all words and thoughts are my own)
