This recipe, from Trish Deseine’s Chocolate, is somewhat ambitiously titled “The Best Brownies”.

They’re very, very good, but I’m not sure they’re the best I’ve ever tasted. They are, however, one of the quickest to make, giving even the speedy Supernatural Brownies a run for their money.  Better still, you could get away with using just one bowl if you were really feeling lazy…

  • 90g (3oz) unsalted butter
  • 120g (4oz) dark chocolate (I used Callebaut 811 54% this time, but they also work well with the Callebaut 70% dark)
  • 2 large (59g) free range eggs, beaten
  • 225g (8oz) white sugar
  • 90g (3oz) plain (AP) flour
  • 50g (2oz) hazelnut or almond meal (I used hazelnut this time)

1. Preheat oven to 180C (360F) or 160C (320F) with fan. Line a square 20cm (8″) baking pan with parchment paper, bringing the paper up the sides. Alternatively, simply grease the pan.

2. In a large pyrex bowl, melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave using short bursts and stirring frequently.  Allow to cool a little, then stir in the beaten eggs, working quickly to ensure they don’t curdle.  Stir in the sugar, flour and hazelnut meal. (Told you it was easy!)

3. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake for approximately 30 minutes.  Allow to cool in the pan before cutting and serving.
