Brownies are the ideal store-cupboard bake, as long as you are one of those people who keep chocolate in store - and I know some people don't! My favourite brownie recipe doesn't even need you to have butter, as it uses oil to reduce the saturated fat content.
brownie recipe. I knew the storage box of cake add-ins was getting low on nuts, but I did have a pack of pistachios, so to this batch of brownies I added 50g of chopped pistachios and 70g plain chocolate chips.
I got distracted and slightly over-baked this batch, but they were still moist enough and rich in flavour, despite the lack of butter - I think the large amount of chocolate, sugar and eggs, compared to flour, ensures a rich fudgy texture.
