Store Cupboard Brownies

These were actually made by my sister, but I had to post them! Give these to anyone and I promise they will like you, (a fact likely owing the extremely high sugar content.) They are particularly good with either fresh coffee in the afternoon or with a cup of roobios tea in the evening.

Unlike most brownies, they do not contain actual chocolate, so as long as you have a well stocked store cupboard, they should be fairly easy to knock up with little hassle.


Ingredients:

175g butter
70g cocoa
3 eggs
335g caster sugar
125g plain flour
1 teaspoon vanilla essence.

Method:
1.Cream the butter, eggs and sugar together.
2.Beat in the flour & vanilla.
3.Melt the butter and cocoa together and fold into the egg/butter/flour/sugar mixture.
4.Put into a GREASED AND LINED baking tray (about 20cm x 20cm)
(A handful of chopped nuts or chocolate chips can be thrown into the mixture at this stage.)
5.Cook in an oven at 180 for between 25 - 35mins (you can tell they're cooked if they the mixture doesn't wobble and starts to crack on top.)
6.Cool for 20mins before cutting into bite-sized squares.
