Justine’s OMG chocolate & honey brownies! – Fiesta Friday #10

So here we go again it is Friday and Fiesta time, that is Fiesta Friday and today No 10 woohoo.

If you read my entry last week you will know that I ‘attempted’ to bake for our local cafe.  In ‘attempt’ I mean it was a bit of a flop.  Not my cooking but unfortunately the Owner chose for my ‘first’ display of food for it to be a fairy cake, which was I might add the size of a muffin, huuuge.  Anyway yup the British weather decided to be warm, nothing was bought except ice cream and drinks, my poor little lavender flowers wilted, looking very sorry for themselves and sales were low!  sighs…..

However I am undeterred….they have at this Cafe the most delicious chocolate brownies, it is good and heck it is cash and carry.  I just hate that, you want when you buy something that good for it to be home made.

Hankering

So I have been hankering after a piece all week and thought ‘sod it’ yes ‘sod it’ in true British form, I will make it myself, yes Ladies and Gentlemen I made my very own signature OMG chocolate & honey brownies!

First I shall treat you to the piccies, then the recipe/method below for easy printing 🙂  I finally worked out the tags to insert the recipe card and now I am cross eyed woohoo or is that the effect of the chocolate!?

PS If any of you do in fact cook this brownie, I would REEEEAAALLLY like to know what you think of it, purrrleeeeease.!

PPS I would also like to say that my entry this week was going to be the Keema Matar that was entered in to the Fiesta Friday I think two weeks ago or last week?  Does anyone know?  But I thought instead of doing someone else’s I should do my own, but what I will say is that the Keema Matar was absolutely delicious, please who made this put your link in the comments so others can cook this deilicious meal.

Justine’s OMG chocolate & honey brownies!


Justine's OMG Chocolate & Honey Brownies

  • Servings: 4 or 2 if your greedy
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Recipe

165G butter

200g dark chocolate broken up

3 eggs

1 yolk

2tsp vanilla extract

165g soft light brown sugar

2 tbsp plain flour

1 tbsp cocoa powder

generous pinch of rock salt

154g of Kellogs Nutri Grain Oats & Honey (or whatever biscuits you like)

1 tbsp of runny honey (or big squidge)

icing sugar for dusting

Equipment

20cm square baking tin

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350F) Gas Mark 5.  Grease the baking tin, line with baking paper with the paper slightly overlapping the edges.

Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat.  When the butter has melted, remove the pan from the heat and add the small chunks of chocolate then leave to stand for a few mins until the chocolate has melted too, stirring together.

Whisk the eggs and egg yolks plus vanilla together in a large bowl until they begin to look light and fluffy.  Add the sugar in two additions, whisking between each.  Pour gently in around the edges so as not to knock out the air.  Keep whisking until the mixture become stiffer.  Once the egg mixture is ready pour the chocolate in to it, again around the edges.

Add the flour, cocoa power, salt and the biscuits broken up.  Stir until fully combined then adding the squidge of honey.  Then pour the mixture in to the prepared tin.  Bake in the oven for 25-30 mins.  the middle should be very so slightly gooey.

Leave the brownies to cool in the tin.  The top will sink slightly and crack a touch.  Pull the brownies out using the overlapping paper and cut them n to squares.  Dust with icing sugar.

I have to say this brownie is delicate, gooey yet with just the right amount of hold around the edges, quite addictive without making you feel sick if you eat too many.  Ermmm that is a bit of a give away that I was a right little piggy right?  Grins with chocolate all over my teeth.  Now to go and do some washing up….goes to call the kids to do some chores..winks!

      Oh my…it is really good. They are still slightly warm, not that many are left LOL…not that kind of makes you sick after one, you can eat more which is dangerous, maybe the honey takes the sickly edge off it, but it was an experiment and this time it worked, believe you me many experiments havnt hehe

    Thanks for bringing these brownies to Fiesta Friday. Who doesn’t love brownies! But I am left wondering about your fairy cake which I’m sure, despite the weather, was equally delicious – and am always intrigued by the way people use flowers in baking. Do you have any pictures of it?

        Yes, it did work, beautifully and thanks for reposting the picture. A crying shame that they didn’t sell, but I wouldn’t give up on them. And I will look up the recipe for my spring decorating ideas (when we get flowers that is).

          A pleasure and I got a list of edible flowers one can get in the uk from the garden centre so I might do something with that. I baked brownies this week and took two to the cafe as samples so not completely giving up yet 🙂

    Hahaha, “Grins with chocolate all over my teeth”…I can’t get that picture out of my head now. Too funny, Justine! You have become quite the baker! I will have to try this and let you know how they turn out. Also, I will probably eat these with lots of vanilla ice cream. I hope you don’t mind. I just adore brownie sundaes!
