No, not a roundabout in Liverpool, just five ways to make these brownies. There’s a simple recipe, and then five different editions.
You could make whatever variations on these brownies you like. You could add nuts, or dried fruit, a layer of chopped up mars bars, chocolate chips, top it with crushed oreos. But these are my favourite variations.
- Standard recipe for brownies
- Salted caramel brownies
Make standard recipe up to step 3. Then pour half of the mixture into the lined tin. Pour in a tin of caramel (397g, e.g. Carnation Caramel), spread carefully, and sprinkle with some salt. Then pour the other half of the mixture on top and bake as in the standard recipe.
- Raspberry brownies
Make standard recipe up to step 3. Then pour the mixture into the lined tin. Scatter over fresh or frozen raspberries and push them into the mixture. Bake as in the standard recipe.
- Cheesecake brownies
Make standard recipe up to step 3. Pour the mixture into the lined tin. Then take 200g of full fat cream cheese and mix gently with 2 tbsp plain flour, 2 tbsp caster sugar, ½ tsp of vanilla extract and 1 egg. Spoon this cream cheese mixture onto the brownie mixture in dollops. Then use a knife or skewer to swirl it around. Don’t overmix it! Then bake as in the standard recipe, though it might require slightly longer.
- Gluten free brownies
As standard recipe, but replace plain flour with the same amount of ground almonds.
