160g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of sea salt
30g unsalted butter cubed
300g dark chocolate
175g caster sugar
30g flaked almonds
1. Melt the butter and chocolate (bain marie style) over a pan of simmering water. Take off the heat once melted and stir. Allow to cool.
2. Then in a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
3. Beat the eggs and sugar for 3 minutes until pale and slightly thicker. Pour in the chocolate mixture and combine until smooth. Slowly fold in the flour mix.
4. Put the bowl in the fridge for 30 minutes, in the meantime preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line two baking trays with parchment paper.
5. Take the bowl out of the fridge, scoop up dessert sized chunks of dough, place them onto the baking tray and flatten down.
6. Press almond flakes on the top of each biscuit and bake for 15 minutes, until cracked and shiny on top.
Hey everyone hope your week is going great so far, I’ve got a nice new recipe for you to try. Brownies are fast becoming my favourite thing to bake, they can be soft, moist, light, sweet either way they always taste delicious.
150g plain broken chocolate
150g muscovado sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 beaten eggs
125g sifted self raising flour
Pinch of salt
1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 3 and line a baking tin with parchment paper.
2. Melt the butter and chocolate in a heat proof bowl above a pan of simmering water (bain marie style). Add 2 tbsp of water and stir once.
3. Take the bowl off the heat and leave to cool slightly, then stir in the sugar, vanilla and eggs. Gently fold in the flour and salt.
4. Pour the mixture into the baking tin, bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until risen and just firm.
They should still be slightly gooey in the middle, leave to cool down in the tin and dust with icing sugar then cut into squares ready to be eaten.
