Chocolate Pistachio Brownies

Makes 20

Made using our Lakeland Brownie Tin

Ingredients

  • 170g dark chocolate, broken into squares
  • 200g butter
  • 380g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g pistachio nuts, chopped
  • 300g dark chocolate chunks
  • 40g liquid glucose
  • 170g strong white bread flour, sifted

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/Gas 3 and grease the tin with Cake Release.
  2. Melt the chocolate squares and butter in a saucepan over a medium heat.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar until well mixed.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well. Add the vanilla, nuts and chocolate chunks. Stir in the liquid glucose, add the flour and mix thoroughly.
  5. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 50 minutes in the centre of the oven. A skewer should come out slightly sticky, not clean, otherwise the brownies will be dry and overcooked rather than fudge-like.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave the tin to cool on a wire rack, then follow the portion guides to cut into 20 identical-sized pieces.
