First off I'd just like to apologise for the lighting in these pictures. I baked these brownies in the evening and took the photos at night as I was too impatient to wait until the morning before devouring one.
Quick and easy brownie recipe!
400g caster sugar
225g butter, melted
225g plain flour
60g cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
200g chocolate chips (optional)
Mix all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl until smooth. I added in some chocolate chips too but you can add in walnuts or anything else you might fancy.
Grab yourself a large rectangular tin and grease that baby up. I just used butter for this.
Pour in the mixture and smooth over the top with a wooden spoon
Bake at 200 degrees C or Gas Mark 4 for around 20 minutes or so. I checked to see if the mixture was ready after 20 minutes and the middle was still wobbly so I left it in for another 5 minutes.
Allow it to cool before slicing up and serving
I also did a gluten free version a while ago which you can read here.
