Olive Oil Brownies

9 Jun

Brownies just got better. Yup, you’re reading that right! These brownies merit a LOT of your attention. Upon tasting them, a pastry chef friend exclaimed to me that my brownies were better than his. Life=made (if you’re reading this Bobby, here’s the recipe!)

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 185g dark chocolate
  • 185g olive oil
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 85g plain flour (If using gluten free, also use 1/2 tsp xanthan gum)
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 50-100g dark, milk or white chocolate chips

Method:

  • Melt chocolate in a bain-marie
  • Mix in olive oil and leave to cool
  • Whisk eggs and sugar together until thick and frothy
  • Pour in cooled chocolate & olive oil
  • Sift flour and cocoa powder over the top and mix until just combined
  • Stir in chocolate chips
  • Pour mixture into well-greased tin (I use a square tin)
  • Bake for 25 mins on 185oC
  • Leave until totally cooled then cut into squares and stuff your face!

I served mine as dessert to a BBQ as well as to feed my friends the day after!
