Brownies are probably one of the first things I ever learnt to cook because lets face it, who doesn’t love a good brownie? I can vividly remember the cover of the Australian Womens Weekly cookbook which we used. From the burnt orange background to the scribbles of 3 year old me & the pages falling out of it. We still own that book.
I think we always made them as we always seemed to have the basic ingredients in the pantry. Over the past 20 or so years, I’ve continued to try new brownie recipes. Some a winner, some a complete fail. But it was last year, when I first visited The Agrarian Kitchen in the Derwent Valley Tasmania, that I found my new favourite brownie recipe.
We began our day with coffee & freshly baked brownies made by the ever so lovely, Stacey. Rodney was kind enough to let us in on the secret… the brownies were a Belinda Jeffery recipe. So today, I’m letting you in on the same secret. You can find the recipe here. They are rich, chocolatey, fudgey goodness!
I normally make them with macadamia nuts but are equally just as good with pecans or walnuts.
