Chocolate Brownies

There are chewy chocolate squares and absolutely irresistible. Can eat cold or warmed and topped with ice cream.

This recipe is adapted from a Cookbook from Christine Frame.

Ingredients: Make 12
100g butter
40g cocoa powder
2 eggs
225g sugar
50g self raising flour
( or 50g plain flour and 1/4tsp baking powder)
50g cashew nut pieces
5ml vanilla essence

Set the oven at 180C.
Grease and base line an 8inch shallow square cake tin.
Melt butter over a low heat and stir in the cocoa.
Using an electric mixture, beat the eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy.
Sieve the flour and roughly chop the nuts.
Mix the cocoa mixture with vanilla essence and mix into the egg mixture. Fold in the flour and nuts.
Spoon in to the tin and bake for 30-35minutes or until risen and slightly cracked on top and a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
Cool in the tin for few minutes and then cut into equal sized squares. Cool on wire rack.
Store in an air tight container.
