Chocolate Meringue Brownie | Recipe

Hello! How can you start a week better than with a Chocolate Meringue Brownie recipe?? I will give you 10 seconds thinking time .... Couldn't think of a better way? I knew it!

(JUST GOING TO APOLOGISE FOR THE PICTURE, it got devoured before I remembered to take a nice snap)

I really would advise using at least a 22cm round tin, but if possible have a slightly longer diameter. Grease and line the tin with 5-7cm extra height on your parchment paper.

250g Butter
350g Dark Chocolate
300g Muscovado Sugar
5 Eggs Separated

4 Egg Whites
225g Golden Caster Sugar
2tsp Vanilla Extract
1tsp Cornflour
50g Cocoa Flour

Preheat the oven to 180/160 Fan/Gas 4

Melt Butter and Chocolate in a saucepan over a low heat, then mix in the sugar until dissolved.

Remove pan from heat then mix in the egg yolks.

In a separate bowl whisk up the egg whites until they form soft peaks.

Take 2 tablespoons of the whites and mix them in.

Gently fold in the rest of the egg whites.

Put the mixture into the tin and cook for 40 mins.

In a bowl whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, gradually adding in the sugar, followed by the vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl sift together the cornflour and cocoa. DO NOT SKIP THIS, I know its tempting.

Fold into the meringue until it is thick and glossy.

Remove the brownie from the oven, and spread over your meringue. Cook for a further 25 minutes.

Leave to cool, it will sink in the middle a little bit.

My tin was too small, so mine ended up looking like a crater. Tin size is important!! HOWEVER chocolate meringue OMFG is amazing I can't believe I've never tried it yum yum yum yum (I could say yum forever)

Thanks for popping by!
