I’m sat at my kitchen table and all I can smell is the brownies cooking in the oven behind me. I have no idea what to write about this post apart from yum! I have a list with all the things I would love to bake and when I get stuck and don’t know what to bake, I see what I have written on my list. This was one of the things on my list because who doesn’t love a good chocolate brownie and well Maltester’s always go down well in my opinion.
Here in the UK, winter is fully on its way. We have been having mild weather up until this week where it has turned cold and there is a warning of sleet on its way. The weather change has been noticed a lot at work, people wrapped up and with heaters on. I thought brownies and a cup of tea might just help people get through the day.
If the top of your brownies are burning then you can just cover the top with some tin foil to keep it from burning any further.
- 200 g unsalted butter
- 75 g dark chocolate
- 75 g milk chocolate
- 4 large eggs
- 250 g caster sugar
- 100 g malted drinking powder
- 40 g plain flour
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 150 g Maltesers
- Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan) mark 4. Grease and line a 20.5cm (8in) square tin with baking parchment.
- Melt butter and both chocolates in a medium pan over low heat. Take off heat and leave to cool slightly.
- Beat in eggs one at a time, then mix in sugar followed by the malted drinking powder, flour, baking powder and ¼tsp fine salt. Finally, mix in Maltesers. Scrape into prepared tin and bake for 45min, or until set with only a slight wobble.
- Cool completely in tin. Drizzle with melted chocolate and scatter over additional crushed Maltesers, if you like, before cutting into squares.
Everyone knows when I have baked at work because I have a very obvious tin that I use, it is a Bourbon tin (yes the biscuits), it came stocked with Bourbon Biscuits as well but they didn’t last long. Hope you enjoy these brownies 🙂
