"This is the brownie recipe we use most. It is from Nigella Lawson's "How To Be a Domestic Goddess". My Dear Daughter who is not a Goddess in the kitchen sure has success with this recipe. So I thought I would share this recipe with you in case you to have a domestic challenged loved one in your kitchen."
Serving Size: 1 (2150 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"I can't tell you how many times I've made these brownies, everyone LOVES them young and old. I've make them for my 2 children's birthdays since they were ooh about 7 years old (by request), cut into small squares, sprinkled with icing sugar and dotted with candles higgldy piggldy style. The secret is the BEST DARK chocolate which doesn't seem to bother children when made into brownies"
"Tastes very good but far too gooey! After it had baked for 25mins I made a small hole in the middle and the te"
"Very naughty, but soooooo nice"
"I love this brownie so much, I highly recomend it!"
"This is the third time I have made these and they get better each time. I don't like gooey brownies so I leave them in longer - at least 35 mins at about 170. Then I turn the oven off and leave them in another 10 or so minutes. They are a hit at Kindy. Thank you Nigella!"
"/i luv these brownies!!!
especially when you take them out at 22mins because they're slightly gooey!
also great with Chantilly cream
you need 150ml double cream
some icing sugar ( not sure how much sox)
tsp vanilla essence"
"These brownies were effortless and simply delicious. They were beyond awesome with ice cream while they were hot.
The center was rather gooey and 'batterish', though.
Nevertheless, they were AMAZING for amatuers in the kitchen :)"
"I've made these quite a few times - they are always a hit, (No nuts).
I'm wondering if anyone has tried Self Raising Four instead of Plain Flour OR added Backing Soda?"
"I have made these several times and its an easy recipe to follow and they are DELICIOUS. The trick is to cook them for 25 mins exactly at the prescribed pre heated oven temp. If you cook them any longer they will be dry. They are gooey in the middle when they come out of the oven and keep cooking in the pan after they come out of the oven. They firm even more once they go in the fridge after cooling. Everyone just loves them....fudgy uber chocolate brownies!!!"
"My partner and i made these today, I was really excited about them but they came out really stodgy and horrible. Not in eddible but they had a really unpleasent texture. Never the less they were still tasty..."
"I made these the other night to take in to work for my colleagues. I made them using some dried fruit: cranberries, blueberries & strawberries, plus small biscuit chunks and choc chips, in case anyone had nut allergies... needless to say they went down very well! Made the meeting a bit more bearable.
I will say that they were too soft in the middle when I first took them out of the oven... I had to cook them much longer, and they were still really gooey inside. Not sure if this was because I'd cooked them in a silicon brownie tray?... A definite crowd pleaser though, and the kids love 'em!"
"This was my third attempt at brownies and they were a hit! Easy to make and absolutely yummilicious. Thank you :)"
"I love making cakes and am always quite average but these brownies are so lovely and easy to make - I keep getting requests from family and friends to make a batch. I have also mixed almonds in too! Beware........ once you have made these, shop & cafe brought ones will never taste as nice again!!!"
"This is an excellent recipe. I was worried about using plain flour instead of self raising flour as worried the brownies would turn out as heavy as pieces of lead but this is not the case. They do raise a little and aren't heavy at all. However, I made sure to whip the eggs well with an electric beater to to add some air to the mixture. I have used brazil nuts instead of walnuts as I prefer them and their consistency stayed crunchy even when cooked (sometimes walnuts don't). I have halved quantities as did not want such a great batch, reduced cooking time to 18 minutes (fan assisted oven) and the brownies were all gungy and perfect. And there was still a lot of them, enough for 6/8 people I would say."
"This is so simple and delicious. I substitue the vanilla with Baileys. yum"
"I have made these brownies a few times now and they are sooo good, and easy to make. I leave out the nuts as some family members have allergies, but they are delicious just the same. A niece even asked for them as a birthday present after she first tasted them:)"
"These were delicious! Made them the other day and everyone loved them, kids already demanding more!"
"These brownies were terrible. I ended up throwing away the whole pan of them. Sorry."
"These are the best brownies ever, I make them all the time and my friends, family and work colleagues love them! Brilliant with the white chocolate buttons. Some advice, never leave the walnuts out because they really give something to the texture. Never be tempted to overcook them as the gooeyness is the best bit, and they dry out a little the longer you store them - not that they are ever around that long in my house! "
