Which recipe did you use? What was wrong with them>

Do you have Delia's complete cookery course? Those are my favourite (very gooey but crispy on top). Nigella has some too in How to be a Domestic Goddess. They're ok but my prefernce is Delia. If you don't have it, I can post it tomorrow.

I'll try the Delia one. It was a receipe my SIL gave me - they weren't very gooey!!

There is a legendary MN brownie recipe. SuzyWong's I believe.

Suzy Wong Brownies

A 7 or 8 inch square tin lined with greaseproof paper/baking parchment and the oven set to 180/GM4 moderate oven.

A small saucepan in to which you put

150g butter
150g chocolate, at least half of it should be plain

On a low heat and let it melt together and leave it to cool slightly

Then beat together in a bowl
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
175g caster sugar
Until creamy looking, use a hand whisk or an electric one

Then sift in
100g plain flour
1 big tablespoon of drinking chocolate
And a quarter of a teaspoon of salt

Throw in 100g walnuts
And the chocolate and butter and mix well with a spatula, but don't beat it. It should be smooth and glossy.

Scrape the batter into the lined tin and bake it for 18 minutes.

Then have a look at it, the top should be pale and opaque with a couple of cracks starting to emerge like a dried up muddy puddle. The body of the mix will still be slightly wobbly with the edges looking like ordinary cake. If it isn’t like this then leave it in for another 3 minutes or until the first cracks in the puddle surface appear.

Then leave it in the tin to cool for 20 minutes.

I've never got the gooeyness right with these. They've been so gooey you have to eat them with a spoon (which is no bad thing). I just need to perfect the cooking time...

I made these this morning but undercooked them and they were sooooo gooey but yummy!

I will tell the family they are sticky chocolate brownies and serve them with ice cream tonight!

Nigella's recipe is really good, although contains enough calories for about a month. Worth it though grin

What happened to Suzy Wong?

Ooooh its all gonna kick off here, she was super funny.

NotABanana Wed 07-May-08 13:48:03

I was wondering where she was too.

Add a little more flour than Suzy suggests for perfect consistency. Also, I often add zest and a splurge of juice from an organe for chocolate organge brownies. Blardy good!

MargaretMountford Wed 07-May-08 13:53:37

Gordon Ramsay's are v nice and gooey,I under cook slightly as our oven is fast and add vanilla extract for my own personal touch...can dig out recipe but not until my kitchen is done ( being built) as I don't know where the recipe books are stored !

NotABanana Wed 07-May-08 13:56:17

Too late now as done and cooling on the hob. Hoping I can cut them up okay for the kids teas. If not, I'll call it chocolate pudding.

collision Wed 07-May-08 16:28:26

Am off to make some now I think!! grin

I made a delish banana teabread/cake thing off Mumsnet Recipes too the other day. A great way to use up old bananas.

NotABanana Wed 07-May-08 17:11:54

OMG it is good.

Only a small piece allowed as Wolfgirl has decreed we give up chocolate this week.

collision Wed 07-May-08 19:25:38

It was right to add a bit more flour.


Firm on top and gooey in the middle! grin

SlightlyMadSweet Wed 07-May-08 19:27:29

I put about 25% less melted choc in Suzy's brownies and add a dollup of cocoa.

They come out a bit less gooey that way.

Try dark muscovado sugar. Mmmm

I have a similar recipe to SW's only I don't add walnuts. I replace them with white chocolate chips instead to break up the texture.
