Earlier this year I attended Food Blogger Connect, an annual gathering of foodies who blog held in London. Aside from learning and networking we get a fantastic goodie bag to take home. One of the items in this year's was cocoa powder from Mortimer Chocolate Company.

I wanted to make brownies for tea and even though I have recipes I thought I would follow the recipe on the back of the cocoa powder packet.
This is a quick and simple brownie recipe that works!
100 gm Mortimer Chocolate Powder
125 gm butter
200 gm Caster Sugar
75 gm Plain flour
2 eggs

Pre-heat oven to 180o
* Melt butter over a low heat,
*Add chocolate powder and whisk until melted,
*In a bowl beat together eggs and sugar,
*Then stir in the melted chocolate,
*Sieve in the plan flour,
*Beat until smooth,
*Pour mixture into a lined, 9 inch (23cm) square tin.
*Bake at 180o for 20 minutes
*Allow to cool slightly and cut into 12 squares

This is an incredibly easy and quick way to churn out chocolate brownies and one that I shall be coming back to time and time again.

I did not receive payment to write this post and as usual all opinions and photos are my own.
