This thread was initially featured as a discussion in our Monthly Sub-Forum for the month of September 2020, however it is still open for replies. Post Your Bakes! This month, we'd love for you to share your bakes! Recipes or pictures of cakes, cookies or other sweet treats that you've cooked up! If you'd like to upload a picture of your bakes, you can upload a picture to your EC album by clicking Menu/Media/Add Media. Post here to let us know that you’ve updated your album! Alternatively you can upload it to an anonymous hosting website such as https://imgbb.com/ and then click the “picture” button when posting, and copying and pasting the link to your picture. However, if you do this, be aware that these pictures will be public. Now without further ado, here is my recipe for Cranberry Brownies: It's a good recipe because you only really use one saucepan, handy for the washing up. It also makes the best brownies I've tasted! If you hate cranberries you could swap them for chocolate chips or nuts, though I think cranberries work the best. (Not mine, but for reference ) You'll need 100g dried cranberries 175g unsalted butter 65g cocoa powder 340g caster sugar (aka. a small mountain) 2 medium eggs 1 tsp vanilla extract 100g plain flour salt 1. Preheat oven to 180c/350f/gas mark 4. Grease and line the base of a cake tin (roughly 20cm square) with baking paper. 2. In a large saucepan, gently melt the butter over a low heat, stirring it continuously. 3. One the butter has melted, transfer the pan to a heatproof surface and sift in the cocoa powder, stirring it into the butter with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in the sugar. 4. In a small jug, beat the eggs with the vanilla until just combined. Gradually stir this into the cocoa mixture. 5. Sift the flour and a big pinch of salt into the pan, mixing until well combined and there are no streaks of flour. Stir in the dried cranberries. 6. Pour the mixture evenly into the tin and smooth the top. Bake for 30-32 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out with only a few crumbs on. You don't want it to dry out - take them out sooner rather than later, it's better to be slightly under-cooked than over-baked in my opinion! 7. Take them out and place on a wire rack to cool down. Loosen the baked brownie by running a knife carefully around the inside of the tin. One they've cooled (you might need to leave it, covered, overnight) you can cut it into 16 brownies!
