Peanut Butter Brownies

Hello lovelies! I have a recipe post for you today because at around 5pm I decided that I wanted something chocolatey. However, as is always the way, it turned out that there was nothing that would fit the bill in the house. A quick rummage in the pantry later and there was a tray of wonderful gooey peanut butter brownies baking in the oven.

The brownies I made have a very subtle peanut butter taste because some of my family members are very fussy and wouldn't like a stronger flavour. If I was baking them for my own personal stash I would probably use about double the amount, and of crunchy peanut butter rather than smooth. I'd maybe even thrown in a few chopped peanuts. The beauty of a good brownie recipe is that you can tweak the ingredients to suit your tastes and cravings. 

Mix 400g of caster sugar, 200g of self-raising flour and 60g of cocoa powder in a large bowl.

Add 225g of melted butter, 4 eggs, a half teaspoon of salt and as much peanut butter as you want (I used three tablespoons.)

Whisk until combined and then pour into a greased or lined rectangular baking tray. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees celsius for 20-25 minutes until you can insert a knife and have it come out clean (ish). DON'T OVERBAKE or you won't get the gorgeous gooey middle typical of brownies. 

Leave to cool just long enough that you can eat without burning your tongue. Enjoy with a nice cuppa or a cold glass of milk. Or a coffee. Or a milkshake. Or ice-cream....
