This was the first recipe that I have used from my Magnolia bakery recipe book that I got for Christmas! The original recipe actually uses butterscotch bits inst ead of white chocolate but I couldnt find any so I was stuck with more chocolate mmmmmm =D I ended up totally undercooking it, mailny because the last time I made brownies I cooked them a little longer than needed so it was more cake like than gooey. So these were very good heated up with ice cream or froyo! But for next time I will try cooking them a tad longer until a more browny like consistency.
Here is the recipe (From More From Magnolia by Allysa Torey):
65g (21/4oz) plain flour
1/8 tsp salt
55g (2oz) unsalted butter
185g (10oz) plain chocolate
2 eggs, at room temperature
200g (7oz) sugar (I used caster sugar)
2 tsps vanilla extract
115g (4oz) toasted pecan nuts, chopped
30g (1 1/4oz) butterscotch chips or white choc chips
(I totally used more than that for white choc chips though!
*** Toast pecans by putting them on a baking tray and in an over at 180, or 160 in a fan oven, for 15 mins, or until lightly browned and fragrant***
-Preheat oven to 160, or 140 in a fan oven, and grease and lightly flour a 20x20-cm baking tin.
-Combine the flour and salt and place to the side
-In a medium-sized saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter with the chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat and you want it to cool for 5-10 mins until lukewarm.
-Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the sugar for 2-3 minutes until light and creamy. Add the vanilla and beat well. Next, add the chocolate mix and beat until well combined. Add the flour and salt and mix until well combined again. Stir in half of the pecans and butterscotchchips (or white chocolate!).
-Spread the batter in the prepared tin and bake for 20 mins.
-After 20 mins, take the pan out and spread the remaining pecans and chips on the top of the brown and return to the oven to bake for another 15-20 mins. You are going to want it baked until a toothpick/knife inserted in the centre of the tin comes out with moist crumbs attached.
