I love chocolate brownies, as do my boys, and I like experimenting with different additions for variety. A few months back I shared a recipe for almond brownies, this time I have made vanilla fudge and sea salt brownies. And they were delicious…
- 100g chocolate
- 3 medium eggs
- 125g softened butter
- 275g golden caster sugar
- 50g self-raising flour
- 25g plain flour
- 2 heaped tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 100g vanilla fudge cubes
- sprinkle of coarse sea salt
- Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees
- Melt the chocolate - either in a microwave or over a bowl of boiling water
- Cream together the butter and sugar
- Beat in the eggs, a little at a time.
- Sift the flours and cocoa powder into the mix and pour in the melted chocolate.
- Mix well.
- Pour half the mix into a greased and lined brownie tray.
- Cut the fudge cubes into 4 - then sprinkle over the brownie mix layer.
- Sprinkle the sea salt over the mix.
- Cover the fudge/salt with another layer of brownie mix.
- Bake the brownies for 30-40 minutes until they have a crust on top, but remain gooey in the middle.
- Allow to cool before cutting. Sprinkle with icing sugar if liked.
The fudge melts during cooking, leading to a lovely squidgy layer in places, and the occasional toffee like crunch in others – while the salt adds a lovely extra flavour dimension and brings out the other flavours too.
Rich yet moreish – these are fab warm with ice cream or just out of the tin with a cup of coffee,
