It has truly been a favorite for my flat mates the past two years! One of my friends actually came over to learn this recipe and it was that day I realized I didn’t need to have a recipe card in front of me, I knew the ingredients and measurements on my fingertips. That’s how many times I’ve made these. So trust me when I say this, it’s one of my most tried and tested recipes.
Likewise some of my other favorites, this recipe has been part of some LSE Events including a charity Tea party of the Eve Appeal we held as part of our Baking Society. You might notice in my blogs, I will mention the LSE baking society a lot, because that was one of the platforms where I experienced my real passion for baking.
So without much wait, here it goes;
- 165 grams Unsalted Butter
- 200 grams of finely chopped semi sweet chocolate (can also use chocolate chips for ease)
- 4 Eggs ( room temperature)
- 165 grams Light Brown Sugar
- 3 tbsp All purpose flour
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 15-16 Oreo Cookies, broken into pieces
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius) . Line a 20 cm (8x8x3-inch) baking tray parchment paper and set aside (it will be easier to lift the brownies from the pan if the paper overlaps the sides of the tray)
- Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Remove from stove and mix in the chopped chocolate. Stir until well combined
- In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until they triple in volume.
- Add in half of the brown sugar around the outer edge of the bowl and give it a whisk. Add the remaining sugar again around the edge and whisk again till the sugar is nicely dissolved and the mix turns out smooth.
- Add in the melted chocolate and butter to the egg mixture quickly to integrate it. Mix in the vanilla extract
- Add the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, salt , baking powder and one third of the broken Oreo cookies). Gradually fold them in, trying not to knock the air out.
- Pour the batter into the lined baking tray. Spread the remaining Oreo cookies over the top of the batter, pressing slightly some into the mixture.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes (don’t over bake them because brownies are best when they are slightly gooey in the middle)
- Let them cool on a wire rack. Lift the baking paper up and cut into squares. This recipe will make around 16 brownies
