Chocolate Fudge Brownie

Chocolate Fudge Brownie

It’s so nice when you have friends who pamper you with all sorts of goodies. For the past three weeks we all met on Saturdays for stories, rosé, good food and sweets. After a serious course of different cheesecake variations we thought it was time to give a chance to old lady Chocolate.

We put on our best smile and on St. Michael and Gabriel Day chef Alina spoiled us with lots and lots of chocolate.

Chocolate fudgeAnd to make everything more heart warming we dunk into some barbecued ribs (another recipe that we’ve put on repeat and it seems we can’t get enough) prepared by Mr. M. who apparently paid close attention to chef Peter ‘cause that ribs were delicious! [We definitely approved of it!]

Now back to our brownie, for she is the star of this post, things are like this:
For brownie you’ll need:

  • Eggs – 3
  • Sugar – 100g
  • Cocoa – 50g
  • Dark chocolate – 100g
  • Lime – 3
  • Oil – 50 ml
  • Butter – 100g
  • Cherry jam – 300g
  • Flour – 150g

  For the fudge you’ll need:

  • Dark chocolate – 600g
  • Cream – 200ml

Method:

Brownies are very simple to make. You’ll need two saucepans: one for melting the butter and another for melting the dark chocolate. Be careful not to burn the butter (you don’t want it to brown) – which can happen quite quickly. When you have all the ingredients ready mix everything minus the chocolate and flour. There is no need to separate the eggs, just mix very well the eggs and sugar before adding the remaining ingredients. When all is blended, add the melted chocolate and 150g of flour. Transfer to a greased baking tray covered with baking paper and leave in the oven for about 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees.
For the fudge you’ll need a pot of boiling water and a heat-resistant bowl placed over the pot, make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl (this is called a bain-marie) and melt 600g of chocolate then add cream and mix well (Quick Tip – use liquid cream – costs 50% less than cooking cream and has as much fat so it gets the job done as well). Pour over the brownie and try not to throw yourself at this wonder, let it come to room temperature at least 🙂

 

Finally I can only say that he who doesn’t have an Alinuta go buy one!
