Tooth Rotter

Mon 17 July 2006

If you're on a diet ... look away now. These brownies, made for a mid-week BBQ and fed to one house mate and two lots of work mates, and pure sugar and butter laden goodness. In fact, they're so sugar and butter laden I pretty much only make them once a year - they are truly special treat material. They also take hardly any time to make and pretty much everyone loves them.

The original recipe came from a very early Olive magazine. I'll update with the exact issue at some point this weekend.

To make your brownies - pre heat your oven to 180C and line a baking dish or roasting tin with foil.

Melt 250 g of butter (I'm not kidding). In your food processor (or mixing bowl) combine 200g of golden granulated sugar, 200g muscovado sugar, 80g of cocoa, a pinch of ground cloves, 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of allspice.

Add the melted butter, 3 eggs and 140 g of plain flour. Combine well. Add 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced (the secret ingredient!).

When everything is well combined, add 100g of dark chocolate, roughly chopped. Roughness is determined by how uniformly chocolate-y you want your brownies - rougher for chunks of melty chocolate in the cake mixture ... mmm. You can imagine how amazingly tasty this mix is before it's even cooked!

Pour the mix into the prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes.

Allow to cool in the pan and then cut into little squares ... feed to hungry mouths everywhere!

Oh I wish I could see the photos :( Not working for some reason.... I could do with some food porn... do you think I would gain some pounds just for looking?

Nice site btw!

I don't think you gain weight by looking!!! The pictures are hosted at blogger and tend to come and go - it's something I'm looking at sorting out - hopefully this weekend.

Maybe you'll just have to make a batch yourself to see what the brownies look like! :)

Glad you enjoyed the site!
