Fudgy Chocolate Brownies

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Today's recipe is for Fudgy Chocolate Brownies. 

They are so easy to make and the ingredients are probably in your cupboard right now. I must warn you though, they will not last long, especially if there are any children or chocolate lovers in your house!
These brownies are the fudgy and gooey kind. There are other recipes for different kinds of brownies, but these are my favourite and I'm sure they will become yours as well.
This recipe is dedicated to one of my beloved roommates from Chorley. If you are reading this and have no idea where Chorley is or have never heard of it, it is a small market town in the North of England!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Butter

2. Caster Sugar
3. Vanilla Flavouring
4. Eggs
5. Milk Chocolate
6. Self-Raising Flour
7. Cocoa Powder
8. Icing Sugar

Bismillah, let's begin!

The first thing you need to do is take a square (you can use any shape but I used a square one) ovenproof tin or dish and line it with baking paper. This is to make the brownies easy to get out of the tin.
Then, you need to preheat your oven to Gas Mark 4 (180C).

Weigh out 5 ounces (141 grams) Butter into a large mixing bowl.

If your butter had been in the fridge like mine, then put it in the microwave for 40 seconds, just to soften it up, otherwise it will be hard to beat.

To the mixing bowl, add 8 ounces (226 grams) Caster Sugar.

Beat the butter and sugar with a whisk, until its pale and fluffy. You can, of course, use an electric whisk for this if you want.

The next ingredients are 2 Eggs and vanilla flavouring.

Crack the eggs into a separate bowl.

Add the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture.

Add 1 tablespoon Vanilla Flavouring with the eggs.

Beat everything together until combined.

The next ingredient is chocolate of course! Use 1 block Milk Chocolate, which is about 7 ounces (198 grams).

Break the chocolate into pieces into a microwave safe bowl.

Place the bowl into the microwave and heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring until the chocolate is melted.
Resist the temptation to now eat the chocolate with a spoon!

Pour the melted chocolate into the mixture.

Stir in the melted chocolate.

Next, weigh out 5 ounces (141 grams) self-raising flour.

Add the flour to the mixture.

The last ingredient is cocoa powder.

Add 1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder to the mixture.

And, stir everything together until it's combined.

Pour the mixture into your prepared tin.

Spread the mixture evenly.
Place the tray into the preheated oven for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in comes out clean.

And here it is! Allow the brownie to cool in the tin so it sets a bit, so you can cut it.

Slice the brownies into squares of whatever else shape you want and dust with a little Icing Sugar.
Enjoy this recipe guys!
