Fondant brownies

    30 min

    Fondant brownies are easy and quick to make, chewy and delicious! Use plain chocolate (I noticed that many people use usually using cocoa powder) for this recipe to have a fondant result. I always use chocolate bars for my chocolate cakes and chocolate things, like that you don't have to add chocolate chips. I think it's a French habit, so you can also try with cocoa powder but that won't be the same result.

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 23x30cm square baking tin and line with baking parchment.
    2. Combine the butter and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in increments of 20 seconds until melted, stirring each time.
    3. In a mixing bowl combine the sugars and eggs with a pinch of salt and mix well. Gradually add the melted chocolate, beating vigorously until well incorporated. Add the flour little by little along with the chopped walnuts, if using, and continue to mix. Transfer to the prepared cake tin and sprinkle the white chocolate on top, if using.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, the cake should be baked on the top but still a little gooey in the centre. Remove from the oven and let it cool. If you are greedy, you can serve it with Chantilly cream!
