100g Ground Almonds

  4. Whisk together the eggs &sugar just until combined.

  5. Add the egg mixture to the chocolate and mix together with a spatula.

  6. Fold in the ground almonds, make sure there are no lumps of ground almonds.

  7. Pour mixture into prepared tin, bake for 35 minutes.

  8. To check: use a toothpick and insert into the centre of the brownies and if toothpick comes out clean, the brownies are ready. Let them cool in the tin before moving to prevent cracking or breakages.




Tips for lining your square or rectangular tin:

  • Always lightly oil or butter the tin so the baking parchment has something to adhere to. (This won't affect your brownies) Cooking spray is also ideal for this.

  • For Square tins: Cut a rectangular piece of baking parchment the same width as the base and longer than the tin with enough excess to cover the sides and repeat,

  • For Rectangular tins: Cut a rectangular piece of baking parchment lengthways the same width as the base and longer than the tin with enough excess to cover the sides. Cut another piece of parchment widthways the same size as the base with enough excess to cover the sides.

  • Use paper clips or metal clamps to stop the parchment paper from falling into your brownie or cake during baking.
