One Bowl Brownies

I love chocolate. I also love not having a huge mess left in my sink after baking. Imagine being able to have both things in just 40 minutes (okay, maybe 42 by the time you have washed out the bowl), a delicious chocolatey treat and hardly any mess.

112g dark chocolate (70% is best)
170g butter
400g white sugar
3 eggs
5 ml vanilla extract
125g plain flour
115g chopped walnuts

Let's get making:

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/gas mark 4 and grease a 13 x 9 inch pan.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter in large bowl until butter is melted.
  3. Stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in sugar. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and nuts.
  4. Spread in greased 13 x 9 inch pan and bake for 35 minutes. (Try not to over bake, but like you would want to leave them in there any longer than they absolutely have to be.)
Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, double cream or all three.
