Bun in the Oven

foodie adventure though conception and beyond

Rocky road brownies

on October 9, 2012

 

Now whether you are trying to conceive or actually pregnant, some times you just need a treat. And if you are gonna do it, do it properly. At work last week we were part of Macmillan’s World’s Largest Coffee Morning. For this all the staff were asked to bake cakes to be given away for a donation. These were the most indulant thing I could think of, and went down a storm!

Ingredients:

120 g 70% dark chocolate, snapped into small pieces

113 g unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

200g caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla bean extract

2 lg eggs

95 g plain flour, sieved

1/4 tsp salt

Topping:

85 grams dark chocolate chips

250 ml miniature marshmallows

3 hobnob biscuits

 

Preheat oven to 165C and place rack in centre of oven. Butter a 20 cm square baking pan. 

Melt the chocolate and butter in a large stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar.

Next, whisk in the vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Finally, stir in the flour and salt.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.

Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle the brownies with the chocolate chips, miniature marshmallows and crumbled biscuits.

Return the brownies to the oven and bake for about 5 minutes, or just until the marshmallows start to melt. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. 

Makes 9 large brownies or 18 small.
