So we decided Brownies and ginger bread men would be our baked goods for the day. We also made a Whiskey Marmalade Cake!
What you'll need:
- 300g dark chocolate chopped, plus 150g extra
- 100g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 3 eggs
- 50g light brown sugar
- 150g caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 100g plain flour
Preheat your oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Grease a 20cm square baking tin and line with baking paper, get it around the edges too. Place 300g of chocolate, butter and salt in a heatproof bowl over gently simmering water. Let it melt down slowly. In another bowl, break up the eggs and add the sugars and vanilla till its all incorporated.
Whisk it into the melted choclate mixture. Gently fold in flour and 150g of roughly chopped chocolate till just mixed. Pour into prepared tin. Bake for 25min or till it's set. Leave them to cool entirely in the tin. Cut into squares. Eat!
