Just before the weekend Baking Mad sent me a lovely box of baking goodies… I had no choice but to bake something 🙂
They have an amazing selection of recipes on the website but I wanted to bake some brownies. Months ago I bought myself a “perfect brownie” pan set; it supposes to do it all – bake, slice and serve. I’ve never used it and I really wanted to try it out… so the choice was made – we are going to have some brownies!
I picked something quick and easy as you can’t go wrong with some Chocolate Brownies.
- 150g Butter (unsalted)
- 250g Dark chocolate
- 175g Unrefined light muscovado sugar (we use Billington’s)
- 75g Plain white flour
- 75g Almonds (ground)
- 3 Eggs large
Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan, gas mark 3).
Grease and line a cake tin. I actually just greased my one slightly as the box said it should be non-stick, so in the spirit of saving the planet I decided to save some grease proof paper 😉
Place all of the chocolate into a bowl and add the butter. Set the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water; remember to make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir gently until melted. Remove the bowl from the pan and cool slightly (we left it off the heat for about 5 minutes).
Beat the sugar into the chocolate mixture using an electric mixer.
Add the eggs one at a time until all combined.
Sift in the flour and beat until the mixture is smooth.
Finally add the almonds and mix well.
Pour the mix into the tin and bake for 30 minutes or until the skewer inserted into the brownie comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.
Now was the time I was waiting for… time to test my perfect brownie tray… cutting the brownies…
So what do you think? Not perfect but much easier and quicker than doing it with a knife.
… at this point your brownies are ready; make a cuppa and enjoy!

The cutter’s an interesting idea. I wonder will it end up shoved at the back of the drawer or become your favourite gadget?!
These sound amazing!!
Those look delicious! I have never made my brownies from scratch like you did, I’ve always just bought a box of brownie mix & went to town that way! I want one of those Perfect Brownie pans! My brownies NEVER come out that even!

You cant beat brownies warm from the oven, and I NEED that tray, genius!
Oh I never get my brownies quite right. These looks ace
Say goodbye to the box and hello to from scratch!
I could have done with this recipe last week when I tried a new one and was very disappointed. I’m going to pin it to my Chocolate board.
Your recipe looks delicious and easy to do. My kids love brownies and I’ll try making them when they come home for the holidays.
WHAAAAAAT?! I don’t even like brownies but I’m tempted to buy one of those cutters anyway, it’s genius! (plus, you know, the brownies look pretty yummy too, and what kind of woman would I be if I said no to chocolate? ;D)

Whats that flying past? That would be my diet flying out the window!!
This is SO unfair! You post these tempting photos and a quick and easy recipe for chocolate brownies (I mean what’s better than brownies? Moist, oozing chocolate, the crunch of that delicate crust giving way to soft chocolate heaven…) and I’m too ill to go and make them.
This is agony!
Oh no 😦
I hope you will feel better soon.
I love brownies. I can substitute some of your ingredients and make them vegan. Thank you for this recipe!
Wow they look amazing, I do love brownies!!
