Chocolate Brownies

These delicious little morsels are so quick and easy. They are made before the oven is even heated .
I have been making them for years and made them every Saturday for the basketball afternoon tea at my sons school. The coach requested healthy food ! Yeah right !!! Thirty ravenous boys do not want carrot sticks after playing that level of basketball ! They requested more brownies please, what is a Mum to do ? It gives us a lot of pleasure to see kids devouring our home cooked delights, so thats what we all continued to do ...
The recipe below, I always double cause it doesn't last long.
Tin for amount below, I use a square tin 8x8 inches. If doubling it fits a 9x12 inch rectangular tin.
You could also serve it as a dessert with cream or ice cream.

225 grams caster sugar
40 grams cocoa
75 grams self raising flour
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
100 grams butter

Preheat oven to 175C
Mix the dry ingredients. Melt the butter and mix into the dry. Whip the eggs with the milk and add to the bowl and mix together quickly.
Pour into a baking paper lined tin and bake for 40 mins.
Sprinkle with icing sugar and cut into squares.

Note: If your oven is very hot you may need to turn it down a little, if doubling the recipe you will also need to cook it a little longer.
