I started by chopping up 120g pecans. Luckily this was exactly how much I had left in my cupboard!
I melted 170g dark chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of water and once fully melted I mixed in 100g caster sugar and 90g dark brown sugar. It didn’t look that great at this point!
I whisked up my 5 leftover egg yolks with 40ml double cream and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
I poured the egg mixture into the chocolate and mixed until combined. It mixed in well and looked a lot more tasty!
Finally I added 95g plain flour, the pecans and a pinch of salt and mixed well.
I poured the mixture into a lined 8×8 tin.
I baked on 350F/180C/Gas Mark 4 for 20 minutes.
The brownies were so deliciously rich and chocolatey. Somehow they tasted even better the next day!
And also into Simply Eggcellent hosted by Belleau Kitchen. They only use the yolks, but hopefully that’s good enough! The theme this month is chocolate.
