Brownies & a cup of tea, and chatting with my sister.

It’s a nice Sunday afternoon.

150g plain flour

280g sugar

3 eggs

150g butter

100g walnuts, chopped

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

A pinch of salt


Cut the butter into small cubes and chopped the chocolate into small pieces. Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Leave the melted mixture to cool to room temperature.

Place the eggs and sugar in a bowl, whisk them until thick and creamy.

Place the four, cocoa powder and a pinch of salt in another bowl and mix together.

Hold a sieve over the bowl of egg & chocolate mixture and sift the flour mixture, add the chopped walnuts. Gently fold until almost even mixture (do not over-mixing).
