And Then There Was Fudge

Did anyone mention fudge brownies? Wait a minute, it was me! I made them the night before the egg tarts. Yea, I was on a rampage :) The brownies turned out really well, I couldn't be happier. It has a slight crust with a fudgy center, pure sinful bliss! 

Here's the recipe by Matt Jones, (from BBC Olive Magazine June 2006);
400g dark chocolate
325g butter, unsalted
6 whole eggs + 2 yolks
300g sugar
50g cocoa powder (I used Hershey's)
80g all purpose flour

1. Before you do anything else, heat the oven to 180C. 
2. Grease a 8x8 baking tin with butter.
3. Melt dark chocolate and butter in bowl over hot water. Leave to cool for a bit.
4. Whisk (by hand) eggs and sugar till pale, then fold in the melted chocolate.
5. Sieve cocoa powder & all purpose flour or just stir vigorously with a balloon whisk.
6. Fold into the chocolate mixture until evenly mixed.
7. Pour into the baking tin and bake for 20-30 minutes or till a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out almost clean.
8. Warm brownies are easier cut with a plastic knife. Be brave and indulge. Fuss over the calories later!

i think i got about 20 delectable bites

upon closer inspection
