After being absent for half a year, which I apologise for, now the dark time of the year comes and cooking and baking is coming back to me. Let me start with fabulous brownies with a decadent chocolate frosting on top.

So here are the ingredients:

  • 175 g of brown sugar
  • 100 g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 75 g of plain flour
  • 50 g of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 100 g of chocolate chips (I use a mixture of dark and white)
  • for the frosting you'll need 120 g of milk or dark chocolate and 100 g of full-fat cream cheese

And how to prepare them:

  • line a brownie tin with grease-proof paper
  • cream the butter with the brown sugar and stir in one egg after the other
  • sift in the flour, cocoa and baking powder and mix
  • mix in the chocolate chips with a spatula and spread the mixture evenly in the baking tin
  • use your hands (slightly wet) to push the sticky dough into the corners
  • bake for 30 mins at 175 degC
  • when finished let cool completely
  • for the frosting melt the chocolate and let cool to luke warm before mixing with the cream cheese
  • spread the mixture evenly over the cake and cut into 16 squares
  • refrigerate for at least 1 h before serving
