Fudge and walnut brownies.

Fudge walnut brownies.

There is something about having a tidy that always makes me really hungry. Tidying the kitchen cupboards makes me ravenous as I find packets of ingredients that need to be used up and a recipe will pop into my mind. This happened at the weekend. I came across a pack of soft dark molasses sugar that had to be used up, brownies it is then. I knew the molasses would be dark and fudgy, so adding coffee and fudge chunks amplified this flavour no end. The walnuts are to relieve the squidge factor a little.

Guess who ate this piece.

Ingredients:

150gr unsalted butter cut in small cubes, 200gr chopped chocolate, 100ml strong black coffee, 250gr soft dark brown molasses sugar, 3 medium eggs, 100gr plain flour,  100gr walnut pieces, 4 fudge fingers cut into chunks

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180c. Grease and line a brownie tray with butter and baking paper.
  • In a heat proof bowl melt the chocolate and butter over a pan of simmering water – make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
  • When all melted out of the bain marie stir in the sugar and cold coffee.
  • Beat the eggs with a fork and mix them into the mixture. When smooth fold in the sieved flour and the walnut pieces.
  • Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 15min. Remove from the oven and scatter on the fudge pieces.

  • Put back in the oven for another 10mins until the mixture is set, but still a bit sticky.
  • Leave to cool completely before slicing in squares, devour.
