The wonderful thing about cooking and baking is that just when you think you have a favourite recipe, you try another version and realise that the new recipe is now your favourite! It is a continually developing and improving experience.  Trying this recipe was one of those moments - when you create something that is truly delicious and it leaves all your old brownie recipes somewhat lacking. The dark chocolate and the blueberries really make this brownie shine.  Try it - you won't be disappointed.  Easy to make, easy to cut and sure to be a crowd pleaser - ours was demolished at afternoon tea!

Chocolate Blueberry Brownie

Ingredients

1 cup of blueberries (more or less), fresh or frozen

225 g butter

225 g brown sugar

225 g dark chocolate (we used 62% dark but anything over 55% is good) - chopped into pieces

225 g plain flour

4 eggs

Icing Sugar for sprinkling (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celcius.
  2. Lightly grease a slice pan (or 30 cm oven dish) and line with baking paper.
  3. Sprinkle blueberries over the bottom of the dish. You could also use raspberries or boysenberries.
  4. Melt the butter, then stir in the brown sugar.
  5. Remove from heat and add the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted.
  6. Mix in the sifted flour and then add the lightly beaten eggs. Mix until smooth.
  7. Pour the mixture over the blueberries. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes - do not overcook, the brownie centre should be sticky.
  8. Cool, then cut into pieces.  Sprinkle icing sugar over the top (optional). Serve with cream or ice cream.

 Yum!
