I’m home and reunited with my beloved baking tins/trays and ingredients! Plus, to add to the excitement I now own a Kenwood kMix!
I got my first stand mixer for Christmas 2014 (a cheap one from Groupon) and mum promised me that if I used it enough she would buy me a better one one day. Last month I saw Amazon had a Kenwood kMix in their daily deals down from £200 to £120, so it was too good to miss! I was so excited to get home to use it!
I managed to find the ingredients in the fridge/cupboard for chocolate brownies so that’s what I made 🙂 The recipe comes from this Cadbury recipe book.
- 200g milk chocolate, although I substituted this for 100g white and 100g milk chocolate chips.
- 300g dark chocolate
- 225g softened unsalted butter
- 3 eggs
- 225g light muscovado sugar
- 75g self raising flour
- Grease and line an 11×9 inch baking tin and pre-heat the oven to gas mark 5 (for tins like these my trick is to put a little oil under the baking paper, this holds it in place).
- Chop the milk chocolate (although if you’re using chocolate chips you don’t need to).
- Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan with boiling water and once melted add the butter and mix until the butter is melted in to the mix. Take off the heat.
- Beat together the eggs and sugar before adding in the chocolate/butter mix and beating for a bit longer.
- Fold in the flour and chocolate chips and pour the mixture into the tin.
- Cook in the oven for 35-40 mins. You have to be careful though as there is quite a fine line between burning it and it not being cooked!
- Leave to cool before cutting into squares.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and I’ll see you again soon 🙂
