treat Friday...

Fridays are treat days in our house, and are a reward for good behavior throughout the week. Today we made chocolate brownies from a recipe given to us by grandma and are therefore called 'grandma's brownies'.

Grandma's Brownies

100g (4oz) butter
50g (2oz) plain chocolate (we use Green and Blacks 70%)
175g (7oz) dark soft brown sugar
2 medium eggs, beaten

½ teaspoon vanilla essence
100g (4oz) self raising flour
pinch of salt

1. heat the oven to 180˚C/ 350˚C/ gas mark 4
2. grease a tin (approx. 11x7 inch)
3. melt the butter and chocolate over hot water, remove from heat and cool
4. stir in sugar, add eggs, mixed with vanilla essence
5. mix in flour and salt
6. pour mixture into tin and bake for 25-30 minutes, until top is crispy and inside soft
7. Leave in tin until cool, then cut into squares and serve

eat quickly before little hands devour all the brownies!
