If my first attempt says anything I know this book is going to be a great addition to my collection. There were a few things that made me decide on this particular recipe. 1. it was Guy Fawkes Night (aka bonfire night) and 2. Brownies.
I mean really do I need to say more?? After reading the recipe I was very interested by the cinnamon. I love cinnamon. (I love a lot of things please bear with me!) Why have I never thought to add cinnamon to brownies?? I knew I couldn’t waste any time in trying these out.
I think I will be adding cinnamon to all my brownies from now on (not really). Seriously though they were very yummy. More of a ‘cakey’ brownie then a proper brownie, but I’m really not all that picky. Enjoy!!
Guy "Forks" Marshmallow Brownies
200g (7oz) dark chocolate
250g (9oz) butter, cubed
250g (9oz) dark muscovado sugar
185g (6 ½ oz) plain flour, sifted
35g cocoa powder, sifted
¼ tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
150g (5 ½ oz) marshmallows, mini or chopped
Preheat oven 160C/fan140C/gas3. Line a 20cm (8in) square tin or brownie pan with baking paper.
Melt the chocolate (break it up) and butter together in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Allow to cool slightly.
Place the sugar, eggs, flour, cocoa powder, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add the chocolate mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in the marshmallows.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes until skewer comes out clean.
Allow to cool before cutting
Angel Adoree’s serving suggestion: Cut into 16 bite-sized pieces. Pierce a cocktail fork into the top of half of the bites and arrange in a checkerboard fashion.
I hope everyone has had a fun and safe bonfire night!!
