I got this recipe from a lovely foodie forumite in another online place.
Fudgy Cocoa Brownies: http://appleandspice.blogspot.com/2011/05/gooey-ch.....wnies.html
They are remarkably easy to make, you end up with very little washing up, and the work office mates told me I could make them again any time, as long as I brought them in to work. It's hard to believe there's not loads of melted chocolate in them. I don't have a fancy muffin pan like the one in the Apple and Spice blog post, but an ordinary baking tin works just fine.
(She blogs infrequently here: http://www.slowrise.co.uk/ She'd blog more if she wasn't so busy doing actual cooking and baking for real 🙂
I made brownies not so long ago and tried without the chocolate, just cocoa and they were nice but didn't quite work, but I wondered if it was because I had used buckwheat flour instead. I'm definitely going to give these ago with the buckwheat flour and see what they taste like - by the way I use the toasted buckwheat ground down to make a flour as I am experimenting at the moment, we have 0.6 of an acres of the stuff growing and that equates to around 130kg to 500kg of the stuff, depending on the year.
looks good Shereen, you've obviously been doing a fair bit of baking recently. i have a recipe for choc brownies that is superb and I think I'll stick with it.
I've got a charity event coming up on sunday at a friends house where I always donate apile of baking, I want to make some rocky road - does anyone have a favourite recipe for it?
Jan, I always use Nigella's Rocky Road recipe - although sometimes I use digestives or shortcake-type biscuits - whatever I have in stock!
I made the brownies with the buckwheat flour but it ended up more like a chocolate cake again. Mind you I did kind of throw everything in without measuring as I was running out of time and my little cake tin is at our other apartment, so the tin I used was too big. Despite all of that it still tasted rather nice even if the consistency was anything but fudgy.
JoannaS - you can call those Joanna's buckwheat brownies 😉
Terrier - I've been trying to find my knack for it again after a break of years. I gave up when the new oven arrived as I didn't like using the fan oven. But I do like home made stuff. When I last made sort-of Rocky Roads I used the BBC's Chocolate Fridge Cake recipe, as it had apricots instead of cherries. And instead of 75g of raisins, I put half sultanas and half chopped dates, as I had dates to use up. It went down very well in work.
I have 'refrigerator' chocolate biscuity/fruity recipe that has orange zest in it, so it is chocolate AND orange as well as all the usual stuff...interested?
