Chocolate Brownies

Posted By Kerri


I was quite flattered today to be asked to bake something for a colleague who is leaving on Friday. Flattered but frightened because I’m not much of a baker. Something about the preciseness of the measuring and the weighing and the mixing and the folding. I like to taste as I go along and add whatever I think is missing, you can’t really do that with baking.

Anyway, the colleague in question likes chocolate so I thought brownies would be appropriate, and I’ve heard that they’re quite well behaved. So brownies it was, using this recipe.

Stephen assisted me with the measuring and the weighing and the mixing and the folding and I crossed my fingers as they went in to the oven. We checked them along the way and, when we thought they felt right, we took them out and left them to cool. They smelt good and the texture seemed right. I just had a small taste and I think they actually taste good too. Chocolatey and gooey and nutty, which is how brownies are supposed to be. I think. Guess I’ll find out tomorrow.

    I haven’t made any brownies since the children have flown the nest. I could be tempted again after seeing your wonderful photograph.

    Thanks Margaret 🙂

    These were very good, even if I do say so myself. I used a very shallow tin though and cooked them for just 20 minutes, not the recommended 35. Next time I think I’d take them out a few minutes earlier so that the centre was gooier.
