Brownies


Brownies
Brownies are traditional North-American tray-baked cakes: always moist in texture, usually with chocolate and pecan nuts.

Brownies should still be soft in the middle, so need to be slightly undercooked.

You can serve brownies with real custard (crème anglaise) a little whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or something more adventurous, like fresh mint ice-cream.

Remarks

If you don't have pecan nuts, walnuts will work just fine.

For an extra-delicious brownie, you can caramelize the pecan nuts (Jeremy's idea).

For a brownie with a more 'cereal' texture, add 50g rolled oats to the mixture. If possible, toast these like the nuts.

Keeping:

A few days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
