Oreo Brownies

March 15, 2013

Take a simple recipe for Chocolate Brownies and sprinkle crushed Oreos on top before baking.

Chocolate & Oreo Brownies

Ingredients

250 g unsalted butter
200 g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken up
4 Oreos crushed
80 g cocoa powder, sifted
65 g plain flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
360 g caster sugar
4 large free-range eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence

Method

1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Line a 25cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper. 2. In a large bowl over some simmering water, melt the butter and the chocolate and mix until smooth. Set aside to cool.
3. Whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence until it looks thick and creamy, like milk shake.
4. Pour in the melted chocolate mixture, whisking as you pour.
5. Sieve cocoa powder, flour and baking powder in to the chocolate mixture and fold in carefully.
6. Pour your brownie mix into the baking tray, sprinkle crushed Oreos over the top and bake in the oven for around 25 minutes.
(You don’t want to overcook them so, unlike cakes, you don’t want a skewer to come out all clean. The brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle).

Allow to cool in the tray, dust with icing sugar then cut into chunky squares. Serve warm with thick double cream or ice cream.

      Thank you! I’m planning a complete blog revamp. I’ve decided to try and sell some of my baking (nothing grand-just craft markets, to friends etc.) so I need to make the blog more concise and show off my creations in a more streamlined way. Hope your boyfriend likes the oreo brownies and keep up the blogging x

      • Well I love the little lucy loves baking icon – you should keep that the same! Yeah you’ve got some real good stuff on there, I’ll be checking in to see what recipe I’ll be borrowing next! xo
