Try my ‘Brookie’

 

What do you get if you cross a brownie with a cookie?

Imagine the richest brownie you’ve ever tasted. Now top it with a delicious soft-baked cookie. Welcome to the beautiful world of the brookie. A friend introduced me to this amazing recipe which combines two of the world’s yummiest bakes into one beautiful baby, and I have fallen in love.

This recipe may look pretty daunting as it’s basically two recipes for one bake but trust me, not only is it fun and easy to do, the outcome is definitely worth it. Just think how popular you’ll be with your friends and family when you offer them one of these.

Brownie
  1. 2 eggs
  2. 85g soft light brown sugar
  3. 50g icing sugar
  4. 75g unsalted butter
  5. 150g dark chocolate
  6. 60g flour
  7. ½ tsp salt
Cookie
  1. 50g butter
  2. 85g soft light brown sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 60g flour
  5. ½ tsp baking powder
  6. 1 56g Daim bar, chopped into small pieces (or equivalent chocolate chips)
Method
To make the brownie layer
  1. Line a 21cm square tin with baking or greaseproof paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugars and the eggs until the mixture is foamy and light in colour, this gives the batter some air.
  3. Next melt together the butter and chocolate (this is essential for the recipe and also makes your kitchen smell fantastic).
  4. Stir the chocolatey mix into the eggs until it’s all combined.
  5. Then combine the dry ingredients and sieve them into your mixture. Mix it all in thoroughly, then pour the batter into your prepared tin and set it to one side.
To make the cookie layer
  1. At this stage, you’ll want to preheat your oven to 200°c
  2. Beat together the sugar and butter until it’s smooth and paler in colour. Then gradually add your egg and don’t worry too much if it splits a bit, it’ll be okay after the flour is added.
  3. Mix in the flour and baking powder so the mix becomes a thick paste. Now mix in the Daim chunks.
  4. Spread this mixture carefully over the top of the brownie batter, trying to get a thin, even layer over the whole tray.
  5. Pop the brookies in the oven for 20 minutes, until they’re evenly golden brown and still a little soft.
  6. Now cool then completely before removing them from the baking tray. Cut them up into the sized pieces you’d like and enjoy!
