I have been seeing Nutella Brownies recipes popping up on various newsfeeds for some time now, so decided it was about time I tested them, to see what I was missing out on.
So, the recipe boast "Just three ingredients" which is a little bit of a big fat lie in reality, considering Nutella itself contains nine, yes NINE ingredients itself.
Sugar, Vegetable Oil, Hazelnuts (13%), Fat-Reduced Cocoa (7.4%), Skimmed Milk Powder (6.6%), Whey Powder, Emulsifier: Lecithin (Soya), Vanillin.
Anyway, what you need is:
- 400g jar of Nutella
- 60g SR flour
- 2 eggs
What you do is:
- Chuck it all in a bowl
- Pop in a lined tray (this one shows 2 x the recipe as I was taking some into work too.)
- Bake - Gas 4-5, 25 mins or so.
So, the verdict? Well, personally they were way too sweet for my taste, but I don't have a very sweet tooth, my colleagues at work who helped test them said they were perfect. They are very gooey, almost cookie-doughish, quite chewy, but soft. I can't quite work out how to describe them - just go make some of these 3 (11) ingredient brownies and find out for yourself ;)
