Desserts is supposed to be decadent and comforting. This Brownie Pudding from Ina Garten the Barefoot Contessa is both of these things and also easy to make! This is a great Sunday night dessert that you put into the oven just as you sit down to eat dinner.
This would also be a hit for a dinner party something a bit fun that I think even non chocoholics will rave over!
200gm butter, melted and cooled
4 large eggs
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Ice cream for serving.
In your stand mixer beat the sugar and eggs together for about 5 minutes on medium high.
The eggs should be light and fluffy.
Melt your butter and allow to cool.
Mix in the flour and cocoa powder until just combined. With the motor running on low speed drizzle the butter in until combined.
Pour into your greased baking dish. Place your baking dish into a roasting tin and place on the oven shelf. Pour boiling water from your kettle into the roasting pan, half way up the side of the baking dish.
Bake in a pre heated oven at 160C for one hour. The pudding will be squidgy in the middle and crusty on top.
Serve hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream straight away.
