  • 150 g caster sugar

METHOD

BROWNIES

PREHEAT the oven to 170°C. Grease a shallow 20cm square cake tin and line the base with baking paper. 

MELT together chocolate and butter in a pot over low heat until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar, followed by the eggs, mixing well to combine.

FOLD in combined sifted flours, nuts and remaining chocolate.

SPREAD mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out with moist crumbs. Cool for 15 minutes before cutting into squares.

COFFEE AMARULA CUSTARD

BRING cream and Amarula to a boil in a pot. Remove from heat and stir in the coffee until dissolved. 

IN a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until creamy. Gradually whisk the warm cream mixture into yolks.

RETURN mixture to pot and stir over medium-high heat, whisking continuously without boiling, until custard thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a jug.

SERVE the decadent brownies warm with coffee Amarula custard. 

 

Tip from the team: Brownies have a magical power of nostalgia. Add your favourite childhood treats to these bronies, such as crushed zoo biscuits, dollops of caramel treat or pieces of Bar One.
