Categories     Afternoon tea, Treat

Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes

Prep Time 40 minutes

Cook Time 1 hours 30 minutes

Yield Cuts into 14 slices

Number Of Ingredients 15

200g dark chocolate (about 60% cocoa solids), chopped
200g butter, cubed
1 tbsp instant coffee granules
85g self-raising flour
85g plain flour
¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
200g light muscovado sugar
200g golden caster sugar
25g cocoa powder
3 medium eggs
75ml buttermilk
50g grated chocolate or 100g curls, to decorate
200g dark chocolate (about 60% cocoa solids), chopped
300ml double cream
2 tbsp golden caster sugar

Steps:

  • Heat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Butter and line a 20cm round cake tin (7.5cm deep).
  • Put 200g chopped dark chocolate in a medium pan with 200g butter.
  • Mix 1 tbsp instant coffee granules into 125ml cold water and pour into the pan.
  • Warm through over a low heat just until everything is melted – don’t overheat. Or melt in the microwave for about 5 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  • Mix 85g self-raising flour, 85g plain flour, ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda, 200g light muscovado sugar, 200g golden caster sugar and 25g cocoa powder, and squash out any lumps.
  • Beat 3 medium eggs with 75ml buttermilk.
  • Pour the melted chocolate mixture and the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir everything to a smooth, quite runny consistency.
  • Pour this into the tin and bake for 1hr 25 – 1hr 30 mins. If you push a skewer into the centre it should come out clean and the top should feel firm (don’t worry if it cracks a bit).
  • Leave to cool in the tin (don’t worry if it dips slightly), then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cut the cold cake horizontally into three.
  • To make the ganache, put 200g chopped dark chocolate in a bowl.  Pour 300ml double cream into a pan, add 2 tbsp golden caster sugar and heat until it is about to boil.
  • Take off the heat and pour it over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Cool until it is a little thicker but still pourable.
  • Sandwich the layers together with just a little of the ganache. Pour the rest over the cake letting it fall down the sides and smooth over any gaps with a palette knife.
  • Decorate with 50g grated chocolate or 100g chocolate curls. The cake keeps moist and gooey for 3-4 days.

EASTER EGG BROWNIES RECIPE - BBC GOOD FOOD



Easter egg brownies recipe - BBC Good Food image

Loaded with chocolate eggs and chicks, this is the ultimate Easter centrepiece - an 'eggstra' special treat for afternoon tea or dessert

Provided by Good Food team

Categories     Dessert, Treat

Total Time 1 hours

Prep Time 30 minutes

Cook Time 30 minutes

Yield 10

Number Of Ingredients 9

185g unsalted butter , cut into small chunks, plus extra for greasing
185g best dark chocolate , broken into pieces
3 large eggs
275g golden caster sugar
85g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
5 fondant filled eggs (we used Cadbury's creme eggs)
150g mini eggs (we used a mixture of Cadbury's and Smarties mini eggs)
You will also need a few fluffy chenille Easter chick to decorate (optional)

Steps:

  • Put the butter and the chocolate in a medium-sized heatproof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until melted. Alternatively, cover the bowl loosely with cling film and microwave at 30 sec intervals until melted. Leave the melted chocolate mixture to cool to room temperature.
  • Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grease a 20cm square tin with butter and line with 2 long strips of folded baking paper or foil – one running top to bottom, the other left to right then line the base with a piece of baking paper. The strips will help you lift it out later.
  • Break the eggs into a large bowl and tip in the caster sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the eggs and sugar for around 5-8 mins or until they look thick and creamy and have doubled in size.
  • Pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the egg mixture, then gently fold together.
  • Sieve the flour and cocoa into the wet ingredients then continue to fold the mixture gently with a spatula just until everything is fully combined, try not to over-mix.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and carefully level the mixture with the spatula. Put in the middle of the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cut the fondant filled eggs in half and set aside then place the mini eggs into a pestle and mortar. Crush a few of the mini eggs but leave some whole. After 20 mins take the brownie out of the oven and press in the fondant eggs, cut side up. Scatter over half of the mini eggs too then put it back in the oven for a further 5 mins.
  • Once baked, top with the remaining mini eggs, leave to cool completely then place in the fridge for about 1hr to firm up. Lift it out of the tin using the strips of baking paper and cut into squares to serve. Decorate with little Easter chicks if you like.
