Brownie Sweetness

Yesterday Moo posted her "Death by Chocolate Cake" and it's a real killer recipe, with 200g of chocolate it's guaranteed to sort out any hormonal chocolate cravings in a single bite.

I didn't have enough time on my hands to make the Death by Chocolate Cake, but still needed something chocolaty to finish off my day. I settled on "Death by Chocolate Brownie", which I am dedicating to Moo - the grand-mother of all good things in the kitchen!

There is a special note for this recipe - use a good quality minimum 70% dark chocolate, you really will taste the difference in the final product.

Mighty Moo Brownies

100g Dark Chocolate (I used 75% Lindt Ecuador)
½ Cup Butter
½ Cup Coconut Oil (optional - you can make this using only butter)
4 Eggs
1 Cup White Sugar
¼ Cup Dark Brown Sugar (you can use more sugar if you like it sweeter)
1 Cup Flour
½ Cup heaped Raw Macadamia Nuts chopped

Melt together the butter, coconut oil and chocolate in a double boiler.
Beat together the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy
Add the melted chocolate mixture to the eggs and mix well.
Add the flour, nuts and salt to the mix and blend to combine.
Pour into a 20cm (about 8") square greased baking tin.
Bake at 180°C for 25 -30mins.
It is baked when your insert a tester and it comes out with a little chocolate on.
Be careful not to over bake, otherwise it won't be fudgy.
Remove from the oven and leave in the tin, covered until cooled.
Cut into squares, dust with icing sugar and serve with cream or ice-cream.

If you don't use the coconut oil, does the amount of butter become 1 cup?

@Caitlin - I certainly does. Enjoy:)

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
