Bourbon Biscuit Brownies

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I figured it was as good a time as any to share my Bourbon Biscuit Brownie recipe with you. Well, that, and the many requests I’ve had for it too.

These brownies are utterly delicious, such a treat. I have gifted these glorious little cakes,  much to the delight of the recipient. My own little gang of cake tasters have also indulged in a little happy dance having spotted the brownie tin cooling. As they inhale the chocolatey aroma they’re beside themselves with excitement. Little faces are gleeful as I cut the brownies into portions. Quick as a flash, small hands reach for joy.

  • With the mixer running, add the sugar a tablespoon at a time, whisking until the mixture becomes quite stiff.
  • Pour in the chocolate mixture and whisk again, until it is fully combined.
  • Take the bowl from the mixer stand, sieve and fold in the flour & cocoa powder. Then fold in 100g of the crushed biscuits.
  • Pour the cake batter into the brownie tin then scatter the remaining biscuits over the top.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. The finished bake should not be firm, there should be a slight wobble in the centre.
  • Cool the brownie in the tin on a wire rack.
