Triple Chocolate Brownies
This is my favourite brownie recipe, courtesy of Sainsbury's. I've tried a few other recipes but always get the best feedback from these. They never seem to last long which is a good sign :) It's moist in the middle and crisp on top. Although I don't personally like white chocolate, I quite like the little bits of white chocolate in this brownie. Oh and it smells and tastes absolutely amazing! Obviously I'm biased... try it for yourself :)

Thanks C for the beautiful plate :)
200g plain chocolate
50g milk chocolate
4 medium eggs
325g unrefined golden caster sugar
10ml vanilla essence
200g white chocolate
150g plain flour, sifted
pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180C
Line a cake tin, 28cm x 18cm x 6cm with parchment paper.
In a bowl, break the milk and plain chocolate into pieces and melt with the butter. Allow to cool slightly.
In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence.
Roughly chop the white chocolate.
Whisk the egg mixture into the cooled chocolate mixture, then fold in the flour, salt and white chocolate.
Pour the mixture into the tin and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until the top is crisp and pale and the centre is almost set.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack in the tin, then cut into 20 squares.
