American Chocolate Brownie

This recipe if from a folder of recipes by mail (yes I have done that sort of thing too!!!). My son doesn't like nuts in things (along with a whole lot of other things) so I omit the walnuts, but it is supposed to have them in. It only lasts a couple of days in our house. (It gets eaten not having time to go off) We call it American Chocolate Brownie but the recipe is titled just Chocolate Brownies.


2 large eggs
1 cup caster sugar (250g)
125g butter
1/3 cup cocoa (40g)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup self-raising flour (60g)
1/4 cup dark choc' bits (50g) (I use chocolate chips)
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (50g) (optional)

Preheat oven to 180 C
Line a 20 cm square tin.
Beat in the mixer (or by hand, but with a mixer it makes it lighter) the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. (while that is happening)
Melt butter and cocoa until just combined in the microwave or on a stove top.
Beat the butter and cocoa into the eggs and add the vanilla.
Fold in the flour and chocolate (and walnuts if using) and pour into the prepared tin.
Bake for 40 minutes and sprinkle with icing sugar while still warm.

You could make this as a desert served with whipped cream. Yum!!
