Super Simple Choco Brownie. Pregnancy Craving #1.

So.. it has been a couple of weeks since my last blog. I have a good reason though – we are pregnant again! It’s been an interesting few weeks, figuring out the similarities and differences between my 2 pregnancies. Like the first, I crave chocolate and sweets even though I’m not a massive chocolate eater. Unlike the first, I am feeling tired ALL THE TIME! And hungry and thirsty constantly. Well, any excuse for an afternoon nap or snack I say!

Here is a foolproof super easy brownie of mine. It is so foolproof that I once left it in the oven too long and it still came out moist on the inside!

Super Simple Choco Brownie

125g butter at room temperature
2 eggs at room temperature
1cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2cup good quality cocoa powder (preferably one without added sugar), sifted
1/2cup plain flour, sifted
50g slivered almonds (optional)

*Sifting is optional but it does give a smoother result

Pre-heat oven to 170C. Grease and line a brownie pan or large, rectangular oven dish.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Reduce speed and slowly add eggs. Mix thoroughly then fold in the cocoa, flour and nuts and combine well.

Transfer into pre-prepared pan and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes.

Allow brownie to cool in pan before cutting them into squares.

Especially yummy served warm with vanilla ice cream!
