It’s almost been a month since I wrote a post… partly because I’ve been busy but also because I’ve been trying to take pictures for this recipe and failing! Every time I make them I end up eating rather than photographing.
What you’re aiming for is two cakey brownies with a marshmallow centre
- 125g butter
- 150g dark chocolate
- 200g sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 250g flour
- 1/2tsp baking powder (2 parts cream of tartar : 1 part bicarb)
- 30g cocoa
- large marshmallows
Melt the butter and chocolate together, add the sugar and vanilla essence and allow to cool slightly. Whisk the eggs and add to the mixture.
Mix the dry ingredients together then combine with the chocolate mixture.
If you’re in a rush then pipe the mixture into circles just larger than the diameter of your marshmallows. If you have time then let the mixture cool a little and form little spheres… they’ll flatten out just like Man-Up Cookies!
Pop them in the oven for about 8 minutes at 180C
When they look like this….
… then they’re done!
Let them cool and then flip half of them and drop a slice of marshmallow on top. Pop them in the oven for 2-3 mins then take them out and put the other brownie disc on top.
If you have too much batter then it’s not bad on it’s own and can be piped:
