Ingredients

  • Butter, cut into cubes - 220 g
  • Chocolate, roughly broken - 200 g
  • Caster sugar - 1 cup
  • Eggs, lightly whisked - 4
  • Vanilla essence - 1 Tbsp

  • Cinnamon - 1 1/2 Tbsp
  • Nutmeg - 1/4 Tbsp
  • Mini Easter eggs - 1 cup

Method

  1. Preheat an oven to 180°C. Line a 20 x 30cm baking tin with baking paper.

  2. Into a large pot place the butter and chocolate stirring until the mixture is smooth. Stir through the sugar. Remove from the heat and leave for 10 minutes to cool slightly.

  3. Stir through the eggs, add the vanilla essence, dates, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg, stirring briskly until smooth. Pour into your tin.

Tip: For a basic brownie leave out the spices. The dates add a lovely moist addition, but could also be omitted.
