Welcome back to Cooking with Kids. Though the focus of this series is cooking meals, we do love to bake. Today we made delicious chocolate brownies. Yum!
I am sorry there are no photos of The Bot baking… we were very much engrossed with the task at hand!
Adapted from Nigella Lawson’s How To Be a Domestic Goddess:
300g good quality chocolate
6 medium eggs
190g plain flower
Preheat oven to 190C
Line a large cake tin (we used one approx 24cm diameter AND a small loaf tin… two medium sized cake tins should be fine!)
Place the chocolate and butter in a saucepan and melt over low heat
Meanwhile, beat the sugar, vanilla essence and eggs together
Measure out the flour and walnuts and place with salt in a bowl
Once chocolate has melted, let it cool a little, then beat in the egg mixture, flour, salt and walnuts.
Pour into your cake tin(s) and bake in oven for approx. 25min-30min. Do keep checking your brownies, as Nigella says – it is only a few minutes between a too gooey brownie and a too dry brownie!
Whilst we were waiting for the chocolate to cool, I took the opportunity to do some counting with The Boy. We counted from 1-30, three times and slowly. Oh.. and check out our Scones Recipe for more baking inspiration!
