Bilgi Bakes | Chocolate Brownies

So I’ve been busy in the kitchen again and this time I decided to bake some oh-so good chocolate brownies. I’ve never met anyone who said they weren’t a fan of brownies! If you’re a chocolate lover, you should check out my Millionaires’ $hortbread and French Patisserie Chocolate Cake posts too. (They make for some rather yummy scrolling, if I may say so myself!) Make these for your housemates and they’ll love you, but be warned. You may find yourself on brownie baking duty until the end of term!

Here’s the recipe which I used. You can substitute the pecans for walnuts if you prefer.
3 tb spoons of Bournville Coco Powder
125g of Plain Flour
85g of butter or margarine
1 tb spoon of Golden Syrup
½ tsp of baking powder
125g of Bournville dark chocolate
2 x Free Range or Organic eggs
50g of pecan nuts
75g of golden Demerara sugar
100g of soft light brown sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract
To decorate
Icing sugar for dusting
40g Bournville chocolate, melted for drizzling
White chocolate stars (optional)

Baking Kit
Brown baking paper
A rectangular baking tin
Mixing bowl
Wooden spoon
These would work really well as 'Birthday Brownies' instead of a traditional cake. It would be a fun, unique and memorable alternative! 


1. These are simple yet delicious. Start by pre-heating the oven to 180 degrees centigrade and then combine the eggs and extracts, followed by the sugars, margarine and golden syrup.
2. Chop and add the pecans.
3. Add the chocolate, which you should carefully heat and melt in a heavy based pan.
4. Gradually sieve in the coco powder and flour, as well as the baking powder.
5. Mix until thoroughly combined and then level out onto the baking parchment inside the baking tray.
6. Once baked leave until cool (if you can!) and then cut into squares / triangles / rectangles and decorate to your heart’s content!
These would be a great little something to take round when visiting a friend’s house or to bake in advance of a movie night! Plus they make everywhere smell AMAZING! No need for scented candles! 
You can wrap them individually with a bit of ribbon and brown paper if like me you’re all about the presentation! I think it makes them look really fancy, plus it makes them even more special when you give them to somebody when you’ve taken the time to wrap them up!
I’ve made brownies quite a few times and I always like to change them up a bit, by adding something different or decorating them in a new way, so that they’re always a surprise!
Hope you like this recipe post and feel inspired to whip up some of your own. Happy whisking peeps! Bilgi x
