most amazing brownies..

Evening everyone, hope your humpday has been as exciting as mine, i only say mine has been exciting as i have been baking today, and this is one of the creations i cooked up in my kitchen this afternoon..

185g unsalted butter
185g best dark chocolate
85g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
50g white chocolate
50g milk chocolate
3 large eggs
275g golden caster sugar

1. Cut the butter into small cubes and place into a medium bowl, break up the dark chocolate and drop into the boil, place the bowl over a saucepan of boiled water and leave until melted thoroughly, occasionally stir, once completely melted take off the heat and place to one side to cool. 

2. Turn your oven onto 160C/conventional180C/gas 4 (most ovens take 10-15 minutes to heat up).
Use a shallow tin, and place non stick or greaseproof paper to the bottom of the tin to allow the brownies to come away easily when cooked.
Now tip the flour and cocoa powder into a sieve and sieve into a medium sized bowl until completely mixed together, without any lumps.

3. Break the eggs into a large mixing bowl and tip in the sugar, using a hand, electric whisk or electric cake mixer, whisk until the eggs form a thick white almost milkshake substance, If the mixture that runs off the beaters leaves a trail on the surface of the mixture in the bowl for a second or two, you're there.

4. Taking the cooled chocolate mixture over the eggy mouse then gently fold together using a rubber spatula, continue this until the mixture is a rich brown colour all over.

5. Sift the cocoa and flour mixture into the chocolate/egg mixture, gently fold this in using a spatula, it looks powdery at first but persist until the mixture becomes gungy fudgey looking.

6. Using a large sharp knife cut up the milk and white chocolate into small chunks so you end up with rough squares, add these to the mixture and fold in till evenly mixed. 

7. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin.

8. Place into the preheated oven and put your timer on for 22-23 minutes, when the buzzer goes of open the over and shake the tin, if the mixture wobbles in the middle then they arent done, leave in the oven for another five minutes, or until the mixture is still, and should be left with a top shiny papery crust:

9. Take out of the oven and leave until completely cooled, then cut into desired shapes e.g triangles, squares or even hearts :)
