Chocolate & Banana Brownies

Use up a whole bar of chocolate in this easy brownie recipe, which you can make in just one bowl.

Ingredients: 1 15cm square cake mould

Chocolate bar
1 bar (70 g)
Unsalted butter
30 g
Banana
1 (Net weight 130 g)
Egg
1
Sugar
1 tablespoon
Rum
1/2 tablespoon
☆Cake flour
40 g
☆Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
☆ Cocoa powder
1 tablespoon
Walnuts (For decoration)
20 g

Steps

1. Combine and sift the ingredients marked ☆. Cut the chocolate, butter, and banana into pieces, put them in a heatproof container and microwave for 1:30 minutes, until the butter and chocolate has melted.
2. Mix the melted mixture well with a whisk. When it becomes smooth, add the beaten egg a little at a time and mix. Add the sugar and rum and mix some more.
3. Add the sifted ☆ ingredients and fold in using a rubber spatula. Pour it into the mould and lightly tap it a few times to get rid of any air bubbles. Put the walnuts on the surface of the mixture and bake for 30 minutes in an oven preheated to 170℃.
4. When a bamboo skewer poked through the middle comes out clean, it's done.
