Cocoa Hazelnut Brownies!
Super quick, super easy Cocoa Hazelnut Brownies!
Serves: At least 8
  • 1 + ¼ sticks (150g) butter
  • 1 + ¼ cups (280g) sugar
  • ¾ cup (90g) cocoa
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes (1/2 tsp fine salt)
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup (50g) plain flour
  • ½ cup (75g) chopped hazelnuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F/160C and line a 8 inch (20cm) square baking pan with baking paper.
  2. Place the butter into a large saucepan and melt over a medium heat.
  3. When the butter is melted, add the sugar, cocoa, vanilla, and salt and stir until combined and free of lumps. Leave to cool for about five minutes.
  4. Add both of the eggs and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and combined.
  5. Add the flour and most of the hazelnuts, reserving a few for the top. Beat the mixture for a good thirty seconds until smooth and shiny.
  6. Scrape the batter into the lined baking pan, and scatter the reserved hazelnuts on top.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes. If you like them gooey and a little underbaked, pull them out at 20 minutes, or if you want them juuuust cooked through, give them the full 25.
  8. Leave to cool in the pan, and then slice into as many pieces as you like.
