Well, when my mother came to visit me, she brought with her some of her home cooking, some old family favourites which reminded me of all the food I used to have access to, and as mentioned, take for granted. I had to steal this recipe...its going to be a staple in our house from now on! (and then after a few weeks I might have to rename my blog to Chubby Hubby--although, I'm pretty sure that one's taken)
BEST EVER CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIES
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat your oven to 190C.
Melt butter and remove from heat. Stir through the cocoa and brown sugar until combined.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Next, blend in the flour, walnuts and salt. Spread in an 8 inch greased pan.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool and then ice, later cutting into squares.
Combine approximately 2 cups of icing sugar with 1/4 cup cocoa powder. Stir through enough cream (maybe 1/4 cup) to get a thick, glossy icing to spread.
If you want the brownies to be even more moist, subtract a tablespoon or so of flour. YUM!
