Squidgy Chocolate Brownies

Caitie made the most delicious brownies today. The recipe was from the Kids' Cookbook (no author noted). The book says 'these lovely chocolate brownies are chewy and squidgy in the middle'... Well, they were right!!

Here's how she made them...

First she had to melt 50g chocolate. She did this by heating water in a saucepan and stirring the chocolate in a bowl over the hot water. I call this a water bath, but her dad calls it a bain-marie. :) Either way, the chocolate melts without burning!

Then she added 100g butter and 225g sugar to the chocolate. We were supposed to add a teaspoon of vanilla essence too, but we didn't have any! Oops!

Then Caitie cracked two eggs (without getting ANY shell in there - way to go Caitie!) and beat them before adding them to the mix. Then she sifted 50g flour, half a teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt. She mixed it all together and poured it in to a baking tin. Then it was baked for 28 minutes. After 28 minutes it didn't quite looked cooked, but a skewer came out clean, so it must have been ready.

They were moist and delicious. Possibly the best brownies I've ever eaten! YUM!
