Chocolate and Wild berry Brownies,

Ingredients,

250grms butter,

250grms sugar,unrefined if possible,I use a mix of demerara and caster,

250grms self raising flour,

80grms cocoa powder,

4eggs,

1teaspoon vanilla extract,

half teaspoon baking powder,

200grms of wild fruit jam such as Damson or sloe or fresh berries, blackberries, raspberries,

Set oven to 175degrees centigrade, line a baking pan (25cmx25cm) with parchment or butter well.

Beat butter and sugar together till light and fluffy,

Sieve flour cocoa and baking powder together,

Add to mix in three batches, adding one third flour mix then an egg then more flour till all well mixed,

spread mix in baking pan and add dollops of jam or fruit dividing across surface if brownies, this gives you satisfying sticky bits in brownies, you could also drop in chopped nuts and chunks of white or dark Chocolate.

bake in oven for 12 to 16 mins, checking after about ten mins, you want brownies to be just set not baked “dry”

Brownies will keep 3days in airtight tin if you can keep your hands off them that long.mix 012
