I adore Ms. Pascale's recipes and would love to buy any cook books she may have produced. Would it be possible to let me know where in Australia I may obtain any. It amazes me how wonderfully and with fun she makes everything she cooks. Ms. Pascale has given me back my joy in cooking. For this alone I thank you. Jane Green, Highfields,Qld.

Where is your chocolate brownie recipe??
Posted by luckymumof6Report
165g (5 1/2oz) butter, plus extra for greasing
200g (7oz) dark chocolate, grated or finely chopped
3 eggs
2 egg yolks
Seeds of 1 vanilla pod or 2 tsp vanilla extract
165g (5 1/2oz) soft light
brown sugar
2 tbsp plain flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
154g pack of oreo biscuits, broken into quarters
Icing sugar, for dusting
20cm (8in) square baking tin


1Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F), Gas Mark 6 with the middle shelf ready. Grease the baking tin, then line with baking paper with the paper overlapping the sides a little.
2Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat. When the butter has melted, remove the pan from the heat and add the grated chocolate.
3Leave to stand for a few minutes until the chocolate goes soft then stir together. Alternatively, you can put the chocolate and butter in bowl and melt in the microwave in 25-second blasts, stirring well each time.
4Whisk the eggs, egg yolks and vanilla together in a large bowl until they begin to get light and fluffy. Add the sugar in two additions whisking between each. Pour it around the side of the egg mix so as not to knock out the air that has been whisked in to it. Keep whisking until the mixture becomes stiffer. Once the egg mixture is ready pour the chocolate into it, again around the sides so as not to knock the air out.
5Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt and a third of the oreos and stir until fully combined, then pour the mixture into the prepared tin. Scatter the remaining oreos over the top, pressing them in slightly. Bake in the oven for 25–30 minutes. The middle should be very so slightly gooey. Leave the brownies to cool in the tin. The top will sink and crack a little.
6Pull the brownies out using the overlapping paper and cut the brownies into squares. Dust with icing sugar.
