Brownie points

Yesterday we baked, even though it was scorching outside. We baked because the Child starts high school today and she needed a little home comfort in her lunchbox as everything, apart from one old friend, will be new.

Here's how to make the brownies that are the Child's absolute favourite treat:

100g milk chocolate, chopped
100g dark chocolate, chopped
225g butter
1-3/4 cup light brown sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 cup brown rice flour

. Melt chocolate and put aside
. Cream butter and sugar
. Add eggs, one at a time
. Stir in vanilla
. Fold in chocolate
. Fold in flour
. Bake for 20-25min in a 180 oven
. When cool, cut into squares
. Sprinkle with icing sugar

Tip: Ordinary flour is fine in place of the rice flour. We just like to mix our grains up a bit. These are extremely fudgy brownies so add a little more flour, up to a cup, if you like yours drier.
