Oreo Brownies

This recipe was recently on Baking Made Easy by Lorraine Pascale so I thought I would give it a go.

Oreo Brownies

165g Butter
200g Dark Chocolate (Grated)
3 Eggs
2 Egg yolks
2 tsp Vanilla Extract (or the seeds of one pod)
165g Soft light brown sugar
2 Tbsp Plain Flour
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
Pinch of Salt
154g pack of Oreos (or use another chocolate biscuit if you are not keen on Oreos)

Preheat oven to 180C and grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.
Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat
When melted remove from heat and tip in grated chocolate.
Leave for a minute or two then stir together
Whisk eggs, egg yolks and vanilla together until eggs are light and fluffy.
Add the sugar in two additions, whisk between each addition, pour it in the side of the bowl to avoid knocking the air out.
Whisk until the mixture becomes stiffer.
Pour the chocolate in, again round the sides.
Add flour, cocoa and salt and fold in.
Fold in about 3/4s of the packet of Oreos, broken up.
Pour in the lined tin and break up the remaining biscuits and spread around the top.
Cook for about 25-30 minutes, the middle should be gooey.
Leave to cool in the tin.
Remove from the tin and cut up and enjoy.
Just out of oven
Just before oven

Verdict: oh so very very very very good.....did I say how good they are?


  1. Looks yummy. I wonder if could do with jaffa cakes???

  2. My God they look fantastic - must have a go :)

  3. oh my god they look so good... I don't know if id be able to stop myself eating the raw dough... looks so good before as well as after... so want to be in your kitchen right now!

  4. I made these after I saw Lorraine do them on TV and they went down an absolute treat with colleagues. Definitely the best brownies I have ever made and really easy. Must say they are best when chilled.

  5. When do you add the melted butter & chocolate? It doesn't say!
