Pecan Fudge Brownies

As far as I'm concerned, Martha Stewart is a foodie Guru. She is inventive, experienced in tastes and what goes well together and she would not suggest recipes she didn't think were worth sharing. And Pecan Fudge Brownies are a good example of this. This reipce is provided by an Everyday Food reader in America and it's definitely worth sharing!

[Adapted from Martha Stewart]

All you need is:

115g butter
100g plain flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
100g chocolate
220g brown sugar
50g granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
130g pecans, roughly chopped

First things first, preheat your oven to 180, grab a square 8 inch baking pan and line with parchment paper. Butter it too so the brownie mix doesn't stick.

In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt and pop to one side.

In a heatproof bowl, melt (over simmering water) the butter and choclate until smooth - make sure you stir it occasionally

Stir in the eggs, both sugars, the flour mix, vanilla extract and half of the pecans.

Pour the brownie mix into the baking pan and scatter the rest of the pecans over the top.

Bake for 30 minutes or until a baking prong comes on of the centre clean.

Leave on a wire rack to cool - don't transfer the brownie from the pan until completely cool or it will break up.

When cool, cut up into 16 chunks.

Enjoy these and let me know what you think. They're worth it, right?!
