Today's blog post is bought to you by the wonder of the small internet television screen! Yes, it's real, you can watch me make Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies! Hooray!
This is super exciting and very scary, (because you can see a popper broke on my top and my shirt keeps popping open every now and then! haha, spot that!)
But the main thing is that I'm chatting to you all and we're making gluten free chocolate brownies together. Even if you're not following a gluten free diet, making these brownies, wheat free, is a pretty special treat indeed, I hope you'll agree!
We had so much fun making this video - biggest thank you to Justin and Alison the creative duo behind Golby Creative and also to Gary and his team at Obsidian Kitchens and Bathrooms in Cheltenham for letting me hang out in their kitchen.
This is the first video in 3 - we've got some more tasty, quick and easy gluten free recipes to share with you soon.
If you don't have a notepad and pen handy to take down the ingredients and method in the video - here it is again below. Enjoy!
340g Plain Chocolate chips
85g Unsalted butter
25g Unsweetened Cocoa (I used Green and Blacks)
½ teaspoon Salt
150g Caster Sugar
3 large Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Neilsen Massey's brand is certified gluten free)
Add chopped pecans if you wish
A good local Ice cream to serve (Winstones Ice Cream is great, local and delicious!)
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
In a heatproof bow, over a saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and butter together.
Take off the heat, cool for a bit.
In another bowl, whisk up the eggs and sugar together.
Add the Vanilla extract.
Then add this mixture to the melted chocolate slowly.
Sift in the cornflour and cocoa powder. Mix until well combined.
Pour into a lined brownie tin. If you line it with baking paper, and let the sides flap over, they make great handles to easily lift it out of the tin afterwards!
Serve warm with ice cream. Enjoy. Let your troubles melt away in the chocolate moment!
♥ See you all again really soon! ♥
