Dark Muscovado Brownies!!

I found this recipe in Sue Lawrence's Book of Baking (mentioned here and here). I have made lots of brownie from different recipes in search of the perfect brownie. I love brownies they are my biggest baking weakness. 

Sue says "...quite simply, the very best brownie recipe around..." With a statement like that I had to try them out. They were good brownies but the very best? I'm not even sure I would call these the best! Good though. I'm glad Sue added to that quote "...-certainly according to my family." 

Everyone's tastes are different and these may be the very best or the best brownies for you, I however will continue my quest for the very best brownie. Enjoy!!

Dark Muscovado Brownies: 
  • 350g dark chocolate (60-70% Cocoa)
  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 250g dark muscovado sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 70g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 170C. Prepare you brownie pan 23cm/9in. 
Melt chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over simmering water in a saucepan. I always take my chocolate mixture off the heat right before it’s completely melted and then stir it until it’s completely melted.
Place the sugar in a bowl; make sure to break up any lumps. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Slowly add this to the melted chocolate mixture, stirring well.
Sift in the flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt and gently fold together.
Tip into the prepared pan and bake for 35minutes, or until a wooden cocktail stick inserted into the middle comes out with some moist crumbs adhering. It should just feel firm when you press gently with a finger on top.
Cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes, then cut up into 16-20 pieces, leave until completely cold before removing the brownies, they are very delicate. I also suggest storing these in the fridge eating them at room temp wasn’t as pleasurable as eating them from the fridge!
