It’s getting cold! Summer is very much over, but that’s no reason to be down, oh no……I have something easy and yummy to make you forget about the cold weather and shorter days. Warm and comforting baking is a great way to forget the outside and makes your kitchen smell amazingly scrummy in the process.
This bake is both a comforting Brownie, and decadent easy peasy fudge. Both can be made separately, but hey? Why do that when you can just put both together? This bake does need a little time to set, so be prepared to wait before you can enjoy the full magic.
Fudge Topped Brownie
150gms Dark Chocolate
200gms Caster Sugar
397gm Can Condensed Milk (Use 100gms only for Brownie)
75gms Butter (or baking spread)
130gms Plain Flour
.5 tspn Baking Powder
300gms Dark Chocolate
Rest of Can of Condensed Milk (Left from Brownie)
Preheat Oven to 180c, (160c fan), 350f, Gas 3
Prepare a Brownie tin by greasing and lining with parchment or grease-proof paper.
For the Brownie, break the chocolate in a microwave proof bowl, add the sugar, 100gms Condensed Milk and Butter. Heat in the microwave on full for 30 seconds bursts until fully melted and mix together.
Add the plain flour and baking powder and combine
Add one egg at a time and mix thoroughly
Pour the mix into your tin and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Its always a little tricky to tell if a Brownie is baked or not, as the usual ‘sticking a skewer to see if it comes out clean’ trick doesn’t always work. If you have a baking thermometer I recommend the inside temperature of your Brownie should be about 195-200f. But if it is a little underbaked, don’t panic, it’ll just make your Brownie a little more ooey-gooey (mmmmmmm).
When your Brownie is baked, remove from the oven, but don’t remove it from the tin.
Break the chocolate into a microwave proof bowl and add the Condensed Milk. Heat in the microwave on full power for 30 second bursts until all the chocolate is melted. Mix it all together and pour on top of the cooling Brownie.
Allow to cool to room temperature before placing in the fridge for about 1 hour (or until you can resist no more).
When fully set, remove it from the tin, slice and indulge.
