So yesterday I found myself, oddly enough, with just one egg.
We don’t really eat egg in this house, so I decided to put it to good use and tried to find a 1-egg brownie recipe. I couldn’t find one – so I found an almost-1-egg brownie recipe, and adapted it.
Day. MADE. It’s so good, we had it for dessert last night (and let me tell you, if you want to impress your parents-in-law, this is the way to do it!) and it was amaaaaayyyyzzzzing.
So I thought I’d share the recipe! Here it is:
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees C (for a fan forced oven – 180 if not). Grease a 20cm brownie pan with butter and line with baking paper.
You will need:
60 grams dark chocolate,1/2 cup of butter, 1 cup SR flour (OR 1 cup of plain flour, 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda), 1/2 cup of cocoa, pinch of salt, 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of milk, 1 tsp vanilla essence, and 1 egg.
1. Melt together 60grams of dark chocolate and 1/2 cup of butter in a saucepan on low heat. Once it’s melted, take it off the heat and allow it to cool.
2. While that’s melting/cooling, sift together 1 cup of SR flour (OR 1 cup plain flour, 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda), 1/2 cup of cocoa, and a pinch of salt.
3. In the saucepan, add in 1 cup of sugar (I recommend caster sugar), 1/4 cup of milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence, and 1 egg. Mix it together.
4. Add the contents of the saucepan to the dry mixture, and mix together until combined. Put it in the pan, and pop it in the oven for:
15 minutes if you love your brownies chewy and gooey and oh-so-yummy (this is what I did).
18-20 minutes if you want them soft in the middle and crunchier on the outside.
20-25 minutes if you like them real crunchy.
Have fun baking! 🙂
