A delicious, sophisticated and simple brownie recipe that will wow everyone. If you are not fond of orange or figs, you can use this as a base recipe and add other ingredients of your choice...
What You Need:
- 85g Unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped (we used 85% dark chocolate)
- 115g Unsalted butter
- 150g Granulated sugar (we used half white/half brown sugar)
- 2 Large eggs
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 Teaspoon flaky sea salt
- 85g Flour
- Large mixing bowl
- Manual or electric whisker
- Square baking tray
- 2 Big or 4 small ripe figs
- 1/2 Cup of orange juice
- Zest of 1 unwaxed orange
Preheat the oven at 180ºC.
Melt the chocolate and the butter in a bowl over simmering water. Once they have melted completely, leave to cool for a few minutes.
Add the sugar and whisk together well.
Add the eggs, one at a time, and whisk.
Throw in the orange juice, the orange zest, the vanilla extract and the salt.
Now add the flour and gently fold it in with a wooden spoon - be careful not to over-mix.
When it is all mixed, add the figs (you can scoop them out with a spoon and squash them gently before you add them).
Using a piece of baking paper, cover your baking tray and grease it with butter.
Pour the brownie mixture into the tray and place in the oven for 30 minutes. Stick a knife in, if it comes out clean, the brownies are ready! If you prefer a slightly more gooey brownie, leave in for a little less.
You can of course accompany your brownies with ice cream, Greek yoghurt or eat them on their own. You'll love them!
