Quick and Easy Brownie Recipe

Rum and Macadamia Nut Brownie Recipe | The Monster and Me

If you’re after a quick, easy and totally delicious brownie recipe, this is it. These squares of chocolate deliciousness are best made for get-togethers and gifts because you do not want to have a box of them sitting in your cupboard at home. They will be eaten. And let’s just say they aren’t exactly health food (but they are seriously yummy!).

– 125g unsalted butter
– 100g bittersweet chocolate, chopped
– 2 eggs
– 1 cup of castor sugar
– 2 tablespoons dark rum or honey
– 100g plain flour, sifted
– scant pinch of salt
– 125g macadamias, chopped

– Preheat oven to 180c.
– Butter a 20cm square tin (I used a rectangular tin I had).
– Put butter in a saucepan over low heat.
– When half-melted, add chocolate and stir until it has melted and mixture is smooth.
– Remove from heat and cool.
– Beat eggs and castor sugar until thick and creamy.
– Stir in cooled chocolate mixture and rum, then flour, salt and macadamias.
– Pour into prepared tin and bake for 30 minutes.
– Cool and cut into squares.

Enjoy alone or with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream.

      It’s dark chocolate which is kinda healthy though right? We’ll just ignore the sugar and butter in it as well! hehe.

  2. Looks SO good Laura. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
