Probably the best brownies in the world
Don't worry! Even though Easter is over, the fantastically guilty pleasure Cadbury's Crème Eggs are still around. But not for long.
I've adapted this recipe from one that has been circulating various social media sites for some time, but they are deviously moreish and so simple to make… great for little kids too. I don't bake a lot but I do have a real chocolate tooth (if there is such a thing) and these may be the best damn brownies you'll ever make.
185g unsalted butter (small cubes) 200g good quality dark chocolate 85g plain flour 275g caster sugar 100ml strong coffee tbsp. of vanilla paste (optional) 40g cocoa powder
3 medium sized eggs
6 Cadbury's Crème eggs (cut in half).
What you need to do:
1. Preheat the oven to 160c and grease a 25cm baking tin.
2. Melt butter and chocolate together.
3. Break the eggs and add the sugar, coffee and vanilla paste, and whisk until double its original volume (no longer than 10 mins).
4. Add the cooled chocolate and gently fold together.
5. Gently sieve the cocoa and flour and gently fold again.
6. Pour into the tray and bake for 15 minutes.
7. Gently press the halved Crème Eggs into the mix, spacing evenly.
8. Bake for a further 5-10 minutes. Make sure they are still really gooey.
Leave to cool and cut into 12 squares and Enjoy!
If you don't fancy Cadbury's Crème Eggs or find them too sickly then try swapping them for mini Mars Bars or mini Oreos. Just as yummy and sickly.
