This week's recipe is a guest post which comes courtesy of the brilliant, beautiful, blonde, baking twins Rozzie and Lizzie. The twenty-two year old twins bake, a lot, from beautiful cakes, to delicious bread, yummy muffins, gooey cookies, sticky flapjacks, scrummy cupcakes, and that is just the sweet stuff. After posting the above pictures and recipe on Facebook they quickly went viral and became a Facebook phenomenon, reaching 25k shares in three days (so apologies if you have seen and tried these already). Luckily for me the girls are sharing the recipe with me, and you, too. So without further ado here it is, the best damn brownie recipe you'll ever try.....
185g unsalted butter
185g best dark chocolate
85g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
3 large eggs
275g golden caster sugar
6 Cadbury’s Crème eggs cut in half.
Preheat the oven to 160C and grease a 20 cm square baking tin.
Melt the butter and dark chocolate together either in the microwave or in a bowl over boiling water.
Break 3 large eggs into a large bowl and tip in 275g golden caster sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the eggs and sugar until they look thick and creamy, like a milk shake. This can take 3-8 minutes. You will know it's ready when the mixture becomes really pale and about double its original volume.
Pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the eggy mousse, and then gently fold together.
Hold a sieve over the bowl of eggy chocolate mixture and sift the cocoa and flour mixture, shaking the sieve from side to side, to cover the top evenly. Gently fold in to the mixture.
Pour into the baking tin and cook for 15 minutes then take out of the oven and gently press the cadburys crème egg halves into the mix, spacing them apart evenly. Put back in the over for another 5-10 minutes.
Leave to cool before removing from tin and cutting into squares.
For the very few of you who aren't creme egg fans try substituting in oreos or a few mini eggs for the creme egg halves they are just as yummy!
