Chocolate Brownie Bowls!!

We had these for Christmas dinner dessert! 

They were soooo good! 

Great chocolate flavour without being too chocolaty allowing the opportunity to choose a variety of toppings!

We decided on ice cream.

After a big roast dinner we didn't want anything too heavy and over whelming! These were perfect!

It is a special tin for these chocolate bowls, but my mind is already thinking of all sorts of cakes and toppings that these would be great for!! 

Fresh fruit and cream ... or jam and cream like a scone? What would you fill yours with?

Chocolate Brownie Bowls with Ice Cream: 

125g soft unsalted butter
125g caster sugar (superfine sugar)
15g malted milk powder (Horlicks)
15g cocoa powder
125ml boiling water, easiest from a kettle
125ml buttermilk or runny plain yogurt
1 egg
1tsp vanilla extract
150g plain flour
1/2tsp bicarb of soda
Plus whatever you want to fill them with! I used ice cream this time around!!
  1. Pre-heat oven 200C/gas mark 6 and lightly grease your dessert shell tin
  2. Melt the butter over a low heat and add the sugar, stirring to help it dissolve. Turn off the heat.
  3. Whisk the malted milk powder, cocoa, and boiling water until smooth.
  4. Combine with the butter/sugar mixture. Mix it up!
  5. Whisk the buttermilk, egg, and vanilla together before adding to the pan.
  6. Whisk in the flour and bicarb.
  7. You should have enough mixture to fill all 6 cavities three-quarters the way up.
  8. Bake for about 12 minutes. They should feel slightly bouncy if you press on the surface.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes in the tin before turning them out.
  10. Then fill as desired!

turned out and cooling for another minute before filling

note: from Kitchen by Nigella Lawson; for my American readers who want American measurements here you are! With all tins and pans that have a different textured surface, you want to make sure that you cool them for the time recommended. If the cakes are too warm they will stick to your pan or tin no matter how well you greased them.
