Spiced Up Nutella Brownies

 

Well today is National Nutella Day (they really do have 'days' for everything!). We have come up with a really simple (I mean really simple) way of making brownies with some good old Nutella (or supermarket equivalent hazelnut chocolate spread). 

Ingredients (serves 8 in theory or 1 person in reality)

  • 400g Nutella
  • 2 large eggs
  • 80g self raising flour (or use plain flour with ½ tsp baking powder)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Spice Kitchen Cardamom seeds (from 2-3 pods)
  • Spice Kitchen Cinnamon (or Cassia Bark)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180'C/Gas mark 4 (lower for fan ovens - say 160'C)
  2. Line a 20cm x 20cm baking tray
  3. Grind the salt, cardamom and cinnamon in a pestle and mortar
  4. Mix all the ingredients together and stir 
  5. Pour the mixture into the baking tray 
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes - check the brownies after 20 minutes as they make take less time depending on your oven (try not and overbake - check with a skewer)
  7. Leave to cool before cutting into squares and dusting with icing sugar - serve with a dollop of vanilla ice cream
  8. Congrats - you officially smashed National Nutella Day!
