UK Recipe- Nutella Brownies

So, a rare recipe post and I will tell you why; as I was doing my daily browse on Pinterest, I stumbled across a fantastic- no wait- a fantabulous idea- NUTELLA BROWNIES. However, after following the link I found that all the recipes for Nutella Recipes were American, meaning that ingredients were measured in cups not in grams and I have never found this an accurate way of measuring ingredients and struggle to get the balance right. Therefore I decided to create my own recipe adapted from Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course. The result was not exactly pretty but... the taste (if you could see that) was simply beautiful... sweet, nutty, chocolately, gooey, chewy, squishy... all round my mouth but I don't care... good. I just had to share the recipe with you, it's a crowd pleaser! 

Just look at that chewy, chocolately goo

You will need:

110g unsalted butter
110g chocolate (I used Galaxy, my favourite)
2 eggs
110g light brown sugar
100g caster sugar
50g plain flour
25g cocoa powder
1tsp of baking powder
100g Nutella

1) Preheat the oven to gas mark 4.
2) Put the butter and HALF the chocolate into a big heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.
3) Stir until melted and smooth. Take the bowl off the heat.
4) Beat the eggs and add them to the bowl.
5) Sieve in the sugars, flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
6) Chop up the remaining chocolate into small pieces and add to the bowl.
7) Add the Nutella in small blobs.
8) Stir until well mixed
9) Pour into a square tin, lined with baking parchment.
10) Cook for 35 minutes. I like them gooey in the middle but cook for longer if not.
