This is my mom's all time favourite chocolate brownie recipe. I've made quite a few for her but each time she says this is the best.
What's great is that it's also really quick and easy to whip up. No slogging in the kitchen for ours. And no need to beat the air into the batter.
All you have to do is mix it up well, pop it into the oven and when it's cooked, cut into squares. That's it!
Really, no fuss & heavenly tasting.
Sometimes, when I feel like it I'll pop in some raisins to give it some bite. And if my sis is around (she don't like it with raisins) I'll put in some chopped nuts. Or if your guests are all adults, put in some brandy!
I used cocoa powder in this recipe to give it a softer texture. Cocoa powder has much less cocoa butter than chocolate and therefore softer when cold.
