A cold & frosty start to the day, followed by fog & then with rain for the rest of the day definitely calls for BROWNIES!
A bowl, a whisk & some ingredients are all you need
1 cup butter, melted
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
chocolate chips for mixing in or to sprinkle on top (optional)
Preheat oven to 175C/gas 4.
Line a 9” x 13” pan with baking parchment.
In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar and vanilla with a whisk until smooth.
Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir in the flour, cocoa and salt until combined, also add the chocolate chips now, unless you intend sprinkling them on top.
Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
