Chocolate Oreo Brownies Recipe

This is the BEST recipe for brownies that I have tried so far. It’s from Lorraine Pascale’s series Baking Made Easy. I’ve condensed the recipe here but the full, better version is available at http://www.bbc.co.uk/food or in the book for the series under the title Cookies and cream fudge brownies. Obviously can’t say ‘Oreo’ eh.

Ingredients:

165g butter

200g dark chocolate (melted)

3 eggs + 2 extra egg yolks

1 vanilla pod or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

165g light brown sugar

2 tablespoons plain flour

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

pinch salt

1 packet of Oreos or similar

Make sure you have a (lined)8 inch tin and preheat the oven to 180C

  • Melt the butter in the microwave and mix it with the melted chocolate.
  • Whisk the eggs and extra yolks with the vanilla until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add the sugar in two additions. Add around the side as this will stop air from being knocked out as much as possible. Keep whisking until it becomes stiffer.
  • Add in the melted chocolate and butter mixture.
  • Next add the cocoa, flour and salt, again around the sides.
  • Break up the biscuits into quarters and add about a third to the mixture, stir well.
  • Pour the mixture into the lined tin, then scatter the remaining biscuits over the top.
  • Bake on middle shelf for 25 – 30 minutes.

Good brownies should be firm on the top but gooey through the middle so don’t let them cook too long!
