This is my go to recipe for chocolate brownies, the one I use when I need to produce baking quickly! As a mother there is always a coffee morning or a bake sale that I need to bake for. I’ve baked these brownies for years, sometimes with nuts, sometimes without. These brownies are really quick and easy to prepare which makes them ideal for baking with children.
I love the look on concentration on my youngest daughters face in this photo, she takes baking very seriously.
Like many of my recipes, this one is written on a scrap of paper. Quite acceptable for me, as I know this recipe and rarely need to look at it. Less so for my daughters, who also love to bake brownies, but depend on me standing with them while they do so. I’ve written up this recipe for them so that they know where to find it. Adding to my online recipe book for them.
If you don’t like pecan’s simply substitute them for another nut, or leave out entirely. Lovely to eat cold, but delicious slightly heated and served with ice cream!2
