Peanut Butter Brownies and NEWS!


So readers, in my pursuit to find my ‘dream job’ I have decided to attend a foundation course in food and wine at cookery school!  I attended a short course at the school, when I was 14 to get a taster and there I found the best brownie recipe.  So I figured I’d share it with you continuing my GBBO baking series, naturally I’ve put my own spin on it.  Pretty unoriginal to add peanut butter but for those of you that haven’t tried it, it’s very easy, here’s how:



Makes about 16 squares

– 140g butter
– 200g dark chocolate
– 225g sugar
– 2 tsp vanilla essence
– pinch salt
– 2 eggs
– 1 egg yolk (Or not to waste the white I add in a dash of milk)
– 85g plain flour
– 2 heaped tbsp peanut butter

Melt the chocolate and butter.

Leave to cool before adding the sugar, vanilla and salt.

Whisk in the beaten eggs and then the flour.  Pour the mixture into a lined square tin.

Loosen the peanut butter by stirring in a bowl, then drape it on top of the mixture in pockets, swirl it around the surface to create ripples.

Bake in a preheated 180C oven for 35-45 mins till firm but fudgy.

    Predictably, I headed right over to the peanut butter chocolate recipe first! This looks AMAZING… and more importantly, huge congrats on finding direction at the food and wine course in cookery school! I am so jealous, I’ve wanted to do the same thing for many years but it’s a hard thing to change careers (I am a social worker). I look forward to reading about your adventures! Back to this recipe, I am definitely going to give it a try when I get home. Nothing beats brownies 🙂 xx
