Tasty tuesday

This brownie recipe is, if I do say so myself, absolutely to die for. Probably literally, given the amount of butter, chocolate and sugar but hey, if you wanted a low-fat, healthy recipe then I doubt you would have even got this far. So indulge and enjoy.

PS. Excuse the photography, my usually shoddy skills are worse seeing as my camera is with the manufacturer for repair and this is the best I could muster on my blackberry.

Chocolate Chip Chocolate Brownies
Makes 12-16 slices.

150g dark/cooking chocolate (ideally 70% cocoa solids)
150g butter
80g milk chocolate (cut into 1cm square chunks)
80g white chocolate (cut into 1cm square chunks)
100g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
3 large eggs, beaten
175g caster sugar

1) Prepare by setting to oven to preheat at 175 degrees celcius and line a 30x30cm tin (I used a roasting tin) with lightly buttered greaseproof paper. (If like me you don't usually see the point in greasing greaseproof paper, then you will struggle to get the brownies out).
2) Put the dark chocolate into a large mixing bowl with the butter and put over a saucepan of boiling water and stir until melted.
3) Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar and baking powder.
4) Gradually fold in the flour and chocolate chunks, sieving the flour into the mixture as you do so.
5) Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared baking tray and spread evenly using a spatula.
6) Place in the oven and bake for around 20-25 minutes.
7) Let the brownie cool in the tin before removing and serving.
