Why we love them
These chocolate brownies are so easy to make, and are great way to engage the kids over the holidays.
- To blend ingredients easily, make sure the eggs are at room temperature, and are lightly beaten.
- The dry ingredients should be gently folded into the mixture, so there is no need for an electric blender for this recipe.
Add extra flavours to the mix for texture and great taste before pouring it out into the baking pan, such as:
- dried cranberries
- fresh or dry raspberries
- white chocolate chips
Why grease a non-stick pan
Even if your pan is non-stick, grease then dust with a thin layer of flour.
This is so the brownies will be easy to remove from the pan. While baking the sugar melts and caramelises on the bottom of the pan. Then later while cooling, the sugar solidifies, sticking to the surface, so dusting creates an extra non-stick layer between the mixture and the pan.
Cool before slicing to achieve a clean cut.
Keep brownies fresh by wrapping leftovers and keeping in a sealed container in a cool dry place for up to 3-4 days, or the freezer for 1 month.
