It’s day two of Brig’s 2020 Food Advent Calendar. Today it is all about brownies with a Christmas twist. Credit for this recipe goes to BBC Good Food.
- 100g of dark chocolate
- 150g of butter
- 200g light brown muscovado sugar
- 1 large egg and 1 egg yolk
- 100ml of any red wine
- 50g cocoa powder
- 100g plain flour
- A pinch of nutmeg and ground cloves
- ¼ tsp each of cinnamon and ginger
Heat your oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Then, grease and line the base of a brownie tin with parchment paper (making sure the tin is not too big).
Next, melt the chocolate on a low heat on the hob in a pan. Alternatively, microwave it for 30 seconds at a time stirring until it is smooth.
Mix the flour and cocoa powder together with the spices and a pinch of salt then set aside. Using an electric whisk beat the butter and sugar together until super light and fluffy then whisk in the egg and yolk.
Add in the melted chocolate, wine and flour mixture and whisk until all combined.
Pour the batter into the tin and bake for 15 mins – it is okay if they are slightly soft in the middle as they will set. Put into the fridge to firm up.
