.Recipe Monday.

I'm really hoping that this Brownie recipe isn't top secret...it is so good that it should be though! Kind of like a cross between a chocolate slice and a brownie, although my version doesn't taste anywhere near as good as Kit's does. The best part about making it is that the whole thing is mixed and cooked right in the slice tin so hardly anything to clean up afterwards!

Kit's Brownie
125g butter or margarine
1/4 cup cocoa
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Chocolate Icing
1 cup icing sugar
2 Tbs cocoa
2 tsp soft butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbs water - approx

Melt butter over low heat in a lamington pan (if you want to make a bigger brownie then use a bigger slice tin and double the mixture).
Stir until melted and brush a little around the sides of the pan.
Stir in sifted cocoa and sugar.
Remove from heat, add eggs and beat well with a fork or whisk.
Stir in sifted flour and nuts. Spread evenly over base of tin.
Bake in moderate oven 25-30 minutes. Stand a few minutes and then top with chocolate icing. Cut when cool.

Chocolate Icing
Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Stir in butter and vanilla and enough water to give a spreading consistency.

Oh yummo!!!

The walnuts must make those fantastic.

It must have been a brownie kind of a day - I posted some yesterday too! Thanks for sharing!

I love this recipe. Thankyou for putting it up. I might have to copy and paste it just in case it has to be removed!

Oh man anything from Kit is bound to taste divine. I doubt it would be a secret as she is always saying, 'you can't take it with you when you die'.
