Easy Peasy Cocoa Powder Brownies ft. Mini Eggs

22 Mar 2014
I usually refuse to make brownies without an actual bar of chocolate, but it's nearing the end of term, and I'm running out of money, so I decided to attempt some brownies with the ingredients that were already in my cupboard. I adapted this recipe from Inspired Taste, and also added a few mini eggs because it's Easter and I can't get enough of them! I was pleasantly surprised, and although they had more of a cakey texture and taste than usual, they were very tasty.

To make these, you will need:

150g butter
150g White sugar
100g Brown sugar
2 Eggs
75g flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 packs mini eggs

1. First, melt your butter, sugar and cocoa powder in a pan on a medium heat. Most do this is a bowl over a simmering pan of water to avoid burning, but I shamefully do it all straight in the pan. It always seems to be fine, but the recommended and safer way is in a bowl.

2. Remove the pan from the heat, and crack the eggs in individually, stirring after each.

3. Add a teaspoon of vanilla essence.

4. Fold in the flour. Excuse the cocoa powder in this picture, I found that it dissolves better if added at the beginning.

5. Once everything is completely mixed in, add the mini eggs, and taste the mixture to check whether there's enough chocolate!

6. Spoon the mixture into a greased baking tray, and place into the oven at 170 degrees for 25-35 minutes. Keep checking them!

Cut and enjoy. YUM YUM YUM.

  3. Oh wow, these look like gooey. chocolatey heaven! The mini eggs idea is absolutely brilliant too. If these brownies were sold in a shop somewhere I would buy them immediately but I might have to attempt this recipe myself a little nearer to Easter. xx
