Weekend Recipe – Nutella Brownies



Starting today and continuing every Friday from now on I will share a recipe which will hopefully inspire you to grab your apron and do some weekend baking! I mentioned in a previous post that baking with chocolate can be tricky and this recipe developed out of a brownie baking disaster – every cloud has a silver lining! If you want to be extra popular amongst your friends and family then definitely give these Nutella brownies a go!! I brought these into work and they were gobbled up with lots of positive feedback too. This recipe is quite straight forward and will keep fresh in an airtight container for about 4 days or so.

Nutella Brownie Bites

170g melted unsalted butter
200g caster sugar
Half a teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 medium eggs
250g Nutella
65g plain flour
50g Cocoa
Half a teaspoon of baking powder
A pinch of table salt

Preheat your oven to 180 C/160 C for a fan oven
Line a square tin with baking paper – I used a 21 cm square tin

Melt the butter and leave to cool for a few minutes.
Weight up the flour and cocoa in a bowl and add in the salt and baking powder and set aside for later.
Next weigh the sugar a put into a large mixing bowl, add the melted butter and combine with an electric hand whisk.
Add in the vanilla extract.
Add the eggs one by one, ensuring that each has been well mixed in before adding the next.
Next drop in half of the Nutella and mix for a few moments until combined.
Add in the remaining Nutella and mix.
Sieve in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
Mix in gently first with the electric whisk powered off (this will prevent the flour going everywhere!)
Once the flour is roughly mixed in, turn on the whisk to combine properly for a minute. Pour the mix in to a lined square tin and bake for 30 minutes at 180C/160c fan oven. After 30 minutes increase the temperature to 200C/180C and bake for another 10 minutes.

Every oven is different so check the brownies 5 minutes from the end. Stick a metal/wooden skewer into the middle and make your judgement based on what way the skewer comes out. The  skewer should not have loads of runny cake mix on it so if that happens leave in for another 5 minutes. You want the centre of the brownie to be soft but not wet.

If you try these out I would love to hear what you think so don’t be shy – be social!! Let me know on Instagram or snapchat (bakemystyle)

Happy Baking!
