I'm pretty certain I've found my go-to brownie recipe. I know only a while ago I was saying how I had yet to find that elusive perfect brownie recipe, and all the while the recipe was sat on my desk waiting for me to use it. I had printed it out months ago and put it in my recipe book amongst all the other print outs that are waiting for me to stick in or throw out. A friend had mentioned how great this recipe was and I made a mental note to hurry up and bake them, but I guess that mental note got lost, along with the things that I needed for the shop...
Anywho a couple of weeks ago I realised I still had not made them so I went ahead and did it, and oh my, they are amazing. A lovely crusty top, perfectly gooey in the middle and a deliciously chewy bottom. Everything I ever wanted in a brownie.
The recipe itself comes straight from the BBC, only I added some left over clotted cream fudge that I had lying around.
