Description

Decadent chocolate brownies…with basil! A stunningly perfect combination.

Ingredients

  • 7 ounces, weight (7oz) Dark (good Quality, Couverture) Chocolate
  • ½ pounds, ⅞ ounces, weight 1 Cup Butter
  • 1 cup Fresh Basil Leaves, Packed
  • 1-⅓ cup Plain Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ⅓ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1-¾ cup Brown Sugar, Loosley Packed

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 160C (150C Fan-Forced, 325F) and lightly grease a 20cm (8-inch) square pan.

Break up the chocolate into small pieces and chop the butter into cubes. Place in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.

Chop up the basil until it is very finely chopped (almost like a basil mush, as small as you can get those little basil pieces to go). Alternatively you could pulse the basil and the brown sugar together in a food processor.

Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder into a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, sugar (if you didn’t already pulse it together with the basil) and basil. Pour over the cooled chocolate and butter mixture and mix well until combined.

Pour into prepared pan and place in the oven for around 50 minutes or until the brownie has set (start checking at around 40 minutes). Cool in pan for around 10 minutes then turn onto a wire rack. Cut into slices. Depending on how thick your slices are you can make up to around 24 slices.
