200g unsalted butter (1/3 pounds plus 2 oz) 200g organic dark chocolate (1/3 pounds plus 2 oz) 90g plain flour (1/2 C and 3 tbsp, all-purpose) 45g organic raw cocoa powder (5 tbsp) 50g milk chocolate (2 oz) 50g white chocolate (2 oz) 300g organic brown sugar (1 ¼ C) 3 large organic eggs
- Take 200g of unsalted butter and cut it into tiny cubes, then put it into a bowl.
- Take 200g of the “best you can find” organic dark chocolate and break it into tiny pieces and put in into the same bowl.
- Put the bowl over simmering water. Melt slowly, do not overheat!
- Leave to cool down in normal room temperature.
- Preheat the oven to 160C / 325F (normal), 180C / 355F (gas), fan option. Use shelf in middle section.
- Cut and use non-stick baking sheet and put it onto a shallow square tin (about 15-20 cm). Could use foil as base.
- Take about 90 grams of flour and cocoa powder and gently sieve it over a bowl, try to remove any lumps.
- Take the white and milk chocolate, about 50g each and cut them into cubes. Continue until tiny squares. Tip: Use a very sharp knife.
- Take 3 large eggs and about 300g of organic brown sugar and mix into a bowl.
- Use a mixer, this may take 4-8 minutes, and turn it into a pale cream-like mixture. Look for the trail on the surface.
- Pour the room temperature chocolate mixture over the eggy mousse you just created.
- Use a rubber spatula to fold it together. Use caution and move the bowl from side to side, try not to knock out the air, it’s a slow process. Should be dark brownish when done.
- Hold the sieve over the mixture and resift the flour and cocoa mixture. Try to cover the top evenly, gently fold until the mixture starts looking dry and dusty. Keep on doing this until it ends up fudgy.
- Be patient, this may take some time but do not over do it, this is important.
- Stir in the chocolate mix until they are dotted through out.
- Take the already prepared tin and pour the mixture slowly using the spatula, all of it. Make sure it cover the corners, use gentle hands during this process.
- Then put it into the preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes. Before you take it our try to gently shake/wobble the shelf a bit, if it moves in the middle leave for a few minutes more.
Alright, it’s ready, but make sure to leave in the tin until it has cooled down entirely. Then cut into preferred sizes. Tip: Serve with cream and fresh strawberries!
Have a bite and enjoy what could be the best brownie you’ve ever made!
