eat me


brownie cake

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder

150g dark chocolate (70% or higher)
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup of pecans (or any nut)

Preheat oven to 350 d. Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Melt the chocolate and butter over a double boiler of barely simmering water. Remove from heat and let cool a little. Add the sugar to the chocolate mixture, stir in the vanilla then the eggs, one at a time. Fold the dry ingredients into the mixture, then gently fold in the pecans and coconut.
Put into a prepared 8in pan and bake for 30-40 min until slight firm.

Looks yummy - I love the way brownies crack on top - and you make it sound so easy! I'm useless at brownies and the only time I've gotten them right was when they were in muffin form...and they were deadly!! x
