Ooey Gooey Speckled Egg Brownies to kick-start the week!

Just in case you’ve been feeling guilty about the weekend’s indulgences, here’s a great recipe to try – Speckled Egg brownies – the perfect way to start the week I’d say… {I’m saying / writing this whilst wiping the crumbs from my mouth… Chuckle chuckle…}

Ok so perhaps this is not the usual guilty-conscience-Monday-get-your-diet-back-on-track type of recipe…

Anyways, here you go: {adapted from Mikey’s in my kitchen}

1 1/4 cup flour
2tbs cocoa powder
1tsp salt
330g chocolate {2/3 dark chocolate, chopped + speckled eggs}
1cup butter, diced
1 1/2cups white granulated sugar
1/2cup brown sugar
5eggs
2tsp vanilla

Whisk together the flour, cocoa & salt and set aside. In a double boiler {heatproof bowl over simmering water}, melt the butter & chocolate. Once this has melted, turn off the heat and add the sugars. Mix it through and let it melt as much as possible, while getting to room temperature.
Once it’s room temperature, whisk in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla.
Fold in the flour mixture until it’s just incorporated – it doesn’t have to be perfectly mixed, as you don’t want to over mix it.
Pour into a baking pan lined with baking paper {the batter should reach about 2cm} and bake in a pre-heated oven of 175C for 35minutes.

Wait until it has cooled completely before lifting the brownies out of the pan and cutting them. {Resist the urge!}
The result: super ooey-gooey {very} chocolate brownies with a jelly ‘swirl’ running through it.
Have it with vanilla ice cream and a few speckled eggs scattered on top – or just as is!
