482 - Bake Once a Month September

September 24, 2012
This month I wanted to bake somthing that wasn't cupcake (as I've made a lot of those) so I went for some brownies (after my failed attempt from last time).

This time I opted for peanut butter brownies, and I got the recipe off BBC Good Food.

What you need:

  • 225g crunchy peanut butter.
  • 200g bar dark chocolate, broken into pieces.
  • 280g soft light brown sugar.
  • 3 medium eggs.
  • 100g self-raising flour.

How to:
  1. Set aside 50g each of the peanut butter and chocolate. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment. Gently melt remaining peanut butter, chocolate and all the sugar in a pan, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has just about melted. Turn off heat and use a wooden spoon to beat in the eggs one by one. Stir in the flour and scrape into the tin.
  2. Melt reserved peanut butter in the microwave on High for 45 secs, or in a pan, until runny, then drizzle over the brownie. Bake for 30-35 mins until it has a crust, but the middle still seems slightly uncooked.
  3. Melt reserved chocolate, drizzle over the brownie, then cool in the tin before cutting into squares. 
Nom sounding right?



I can confirm that they taste lovely, and even better, they actually taste like brownies. This is such an easy recipe as everything really happens in one pan. Lovely!


  1. Yum! These look amazing! I'm always a bit wary of baking brownies in case they end up rubbish, although this looks like a straightforward to try out.

  2. Yeah my first attempt was fail. These were much better :)
