    And no, not the little girl scout type things.

    I love brownies and and I thought I'd share the best brownie recipe Mrs H has used.

    40g plain flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    25g cocoa powder
    140g plain chocolate, broken into small pieces
    3 medium eggs
    225g caster sugar
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    8 dollops Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise (110g)
    55g walnuts, finely chopped
    *A dollop is one level tablespoon of Hellmann’s mayonnaise (15ml)


    Lightly grease a 23cm square cake tin and line with baking paper.
    Sift the flour with the baking powder and cocoa. Put the chocolate into a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of hot water and leave until melted (alternatively, microwave on medium power, stirring occasionally, until just melted).
    In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar and vanilla until slightly thickened.
    Whisk in the chocolate mixture. Fold in the flour mixture, mayonnaise and walnuts.
    Pour into the prepared tin and bake in a preheated oven at 160°C for about 30-35 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
    Leave to cool in the tin before cutting into squares.
