When Harry and I were young we decided to set up our own business. We wanted to start selling baked goods door to door and we called ourselves The Twin Bakers. Mum fronted us the cash (her ROI is still pending) Tom designed our logo, I had the baking skills but yet Harry was still in charge. We sold these brownies to families around the neighbourhood and made a good profit. However this business venture was short lived after we moved to a more local school and didn’t want to knock on the door to someone we shared a class with. Not sure matching uniforms and selling brownies was a good look at 13. The Twin Bakers unfortunately are no more however the brownie recipe lives on…
- 200 g butter
- 200 g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids)
- A dash of vanilla extract
- 4 eggs beaten
- 400 g caster sugar
- 90 g flour
- Pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius.
- Place the chocolate and butter into a heat proof bowl and melt it over a pan of simmering water (make sure the water isn’t in direct contact with the bowl)
- Once melted, remove from the heat and add the eggs and sugar and mix well.
- Sieve in the flour and pinch of salt and fold until fully incorporated.
- Place in into a lined baking sheet and cook in the centre of the oven for 25 minutes.
