Bakers Corner sent me a big box of chocolate recently and we had a lot of fun baking with it. OK some of it didn’t make it into baked goods because it was just too good to eat. And I’m a big chocoholic.
But I did use some in my favourite brownie recipe. Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies. These are super fudgy and delicious. I know that you can find all sorts of brownie recipes these days but this is still my failproof never let me down brownie recipe that I’ve been making before I got married and had my family.
You’ll need 200g dark chocolate. We used a bag Nestle Bakers Choice Melts and it meant no breaking up of chocolate. For quality control purposes we did eat 3 buttons from the bag before adding to the saucepan
Add in 100g cubed unsalted butter and melt together. I did this in a small saucepan over a saucepan of boiling water. You can also melt it in a microwave safe bowl for 2 1/2 minutes on medium and stir it a few times in between.
Add in 1 cup of caster sugar and mix well. Add in 2 -3 generous scoops of peanut butter (crunchy or smooth) and mix well. Add in 2 eggs and stir gently. Then add in 2/3 cup sifted self raising flour. Gently fold the flour through making sure it’s all mixed in. Pour into a lined square/lamington tin. Baking a preheated 180C degree oven for about 20-25 minutes.
Leave to cool completely in the tin. Lift out of the tray by the paper and then slice with a clean knife.
Enjoy. You can find lots of chocolate creations or create and share your own with #bakerscorner #bakeityours
