How do you transform Good Friday into Awesome Friday? With a picnic in the park, sustained by lots of homemade brownies, of course. These brownies combine those two Easter essentials, eggs and chocolate, and can be customised with other goodies such as nuts or cherries, or simply left plain.
Good Friday (or any other day) Brownies
200gm dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
200gm caster sugar
100gm cocoa powder
75gm plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
about 150gm nuts/cherries (optional)
- Preheat oven to 180C.
- Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of boiling water, add butter and chocolate to the bowl and stir gently until melted. Take bowl off heat, add cherries/nuts, if using.
- In a separate bowl, combine cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar. Add the dry mixture into the bowl of chocolate and butter.
- Lightly whisk the eggs, then combine with the rest of the batter. Gently stir everything together until you get a smooth, silky consistency.
- Pour batter into a square baking tray and bake for about 25-30 mins.
