Chocolate chestnut brownies

After baking with chestnut in my last clandestine cake club cake post, I had both some puree and whole chestnut leftover. I love chocolate brownies so I thought I would mix the two, the resultant bake is a lovely festive treat and is great with a coffee, not at all nutty more of an aromatically moist crumbly treat enhanced by adding the chestnut.



Ingredients

  • 140g dark chocolate (approx 50% cocoa solids or more)
  • 200g approx chestnut puree ( I blitzed my leftovers)
  • 200g granulated sugar
  • 170g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs - free range
  • 100g butter
  • Drop of milk to loosen mix if necessary
Method
  • Preheat your oven to 170c fan / 180c nornal oven, line a deep square or oblong baking tin, approx 20cm square ish
  • Melt chocolate and butter in bowl in the warming oven
  • Mix your eggs and sugar and whisk until ribbony and volume increased
  • Cool slightly your chocolate and butter mix , then mix with your egg mixture and all your other ingredients, adding a little milk if necessary.
  • Pour into the prepared tin
  • Bake for approx 15- 20 minutes until cooked but still slightly moist in the middle
  • Remove from oven and fully cool in the tin
  • Cut in to chunks and dust with icing sugar, if you are feeling very festive you could use gold spray or edible glitter too.
