Peanut butter fudge brownie

15 November 2022

This brownie is incredibly gooey and goes really well with the saltiness of the peanut butter. Use good quality chocolate and you’ll never go wrong.

500g good quality dark couverture chocolate (containing 60% cocoa solids), roughly chopped
170g butter, roughly chopped
1 ½ cups caster sugar
1 tsp salt
4 eggs
2/3 cup plain flour
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter, melted slightly

Preheat oven to 160C. Grease and line a 20 cm square baking tin.

In a heatproof bowl over simmering water, melt chocolate and butter until smooth and shiny. Remove from heat.

Add sugar and salt and mix until combined. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flour and stir until combined.

Pour mixture in baking tin. Dollop melted peanut butter on top of the mixture and using a fork, gently comb the peanut butter through the mixture to create a swirl effect.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in tray for another 10 minutes. Turn it out on a wire rack and allow to cool completely before serving.
