Peanut Butter brownies 

Our delicious brownie recipe just got better! The salty and nutty taste of the peanut butter beautifully compliments the sweet and rich flavour of these gooey brownies. We recommend these for any PB fans! 

Ingredients (serves 12, when cut into medium sized squares):

  • 225g smooth or crunchy peanut butter 
  • 185g unsalted butter, at room temp 
  • 80g plain flour, sifted 
  • 40g cocoa powder, sifted
  • 275g caster sugar or golden caster sugar 
  • 3 medium eggs 
  • 185g dark chocolate 

Method: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees C and line a 20cm brownie tin with baking paper 
  2. Next, place the chocolate, butter and 50g of the peanut butter into a saucepan and melt over a gentle heat until all the ingredients have combined. Set aside and then place the sugar and eggs into a mixing bowl  
  3. Whisk for around 2-3 minutes until the mixture has doubled in size and resembles a mousse like mixture. Pour your peanut butter/chocolate mixture from the saucepan into the mixing bowl and combine with the sugar/egg mixture before gentle folding in the flour and cocoa powder 
  4. Once combined, pour into the prepared brownie tin and melt the remaining peanut butter in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Drizzle the melted peanut butter over the top of the brownie mixture and then,  using the end of a cake tester/metal skewer, slightly stir in the peanut butter to create a marble effect
  5. Place in the oven for 30-40 mins until the mixture is no longer wobbling and a cake tester comes out semi clean 
  6. Leave to cool and cut into squares ready for serving 

Enjoy! Nic x
