Bake With Me #13 – Smarties Brownies

A while ago I came across the recipe on Pinterest for some Smarties brownies which I couldn’t resist making! I love brownies…. when I can make them properly! Brownies are one bake I really struggle not to burn! Anyway I couldn’t resist this recipe, although there was one thing that concerned me… The fact that it was (almost) a flourless recipe. The last time I tried to make something that relied on the eggs solely as a raising agent it came out as flat as a pancake!

So what will you need to make these brownies?


160g unsalted butter

200g milk chocolate

3 eggs

2 egg yolks

160g caster sugar

2tbsp plain flour

1tbsp cocoa powder

3 tubes of Smarties

100g white chocolate

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line the tin (I used a traybake tin).

In a saucepan, melt the butter. Once melted remove the pan from the heat and add the milk chocolate, mixing until the chocolate has melted. Take it away from the heat and leave it to cool.

Whisk the eggs up until thick, slowly adding the sugar a few spoonfuls at a time. (I put the mixer on full speed and let it whisk up for a while – it takes several minutes).

Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, slowly pour it in to the egg mix and mix it well again.

Very gently fold in the flour and cocoa powder as well as 2 tubes of smarties and the white chocolate.

Pour the mix into the tin and bake for 25 mins. After around 10-15 minutes push in the remaining tube of smarties, then put it back in the oven for the remaining time.

These brownies were so nice! They didn’t sink like my last cake that used eggs as the raising agent! They’re not that rich having used milk chocolate but they tasted really nice and creamy.

Do you think you’ll give these a go? πŸ™‚
