Dragon Stout Fudge Brownies

This was inspired by a recipe I found on a blog somewhere, but I’ve lost the link so apologies to the original poster. I’ve adapted it to suit the ingredients I had and changed some of the amounts to more familiar UK measurements (although I do like cup measurements and have kept those).


125g unsalted butter
120g chopped dark chocolate
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons soft brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup Dragon Stout
2 tablespoons Dark Rum
¾ cup sifted flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 160c, line a baking tin with baking paper and set aside.

2. Use the heat from the pre-heating oven to melt the broken chocolate and butter in an ovenproof dish. Once melted, stir and leave to cool before adding the sugars, mixing well to combine.

3. In a small bowl beat together 2 eggs, yolks, vanilla, stout and rum until smooth.

4. Sift flour with salt into a separate bowl.

5. Stir stout mixture into the chocolate mixture in thirds, alternating with flour by 1/3 cupfuls, and stirring after each addition until batter is just blended. Stir in nuts if desired. Do not overbeat.

6. Scrape batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven about 1 hour. Let cool to lukewarm before slicing.

As you see, my nuts sunk, but let's not get personal.
