If you like dark chocolate, that is verging on bitter, try this simple brownie recipe. The courgettes (zucchini) keeps the cake moist, so it tastes just as good the next day.
recipe after the cut:
60ml vegetable/sunflower oil
150g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
125g plain flour
35g coco powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
125g courgette (approx 1 medium sized)
30g nuts (walnuts and hazelnuts work well)
a generous slug of benedictine (rum also makes good boozy brownies, or you can mix out the alcohol all together)
for the topping:
50g melted chocolate and stir in another couple of slugs of your chosen booze.
1. pre-heat oven to 180
2. combine all the ingredients together, the mixture will be lumpy but that's fine, then pour into a cake tin.
3. bake for about 20mins
4. once the cake has cooled slightly, spread the melted chocolate and alcohol on top.
5. serve with cream and maybe a small shot of benedictine
