These brownies were about the only thing I could bake in my student oven, and bake them I did. Again, and again, and again. They were astoundingly popular, even if the recipient of most of the tray was indeed myself.
I still bake them now, and the recipe is most appropriately from The Student Cookbook. A note on chocolate – you really shouldn’t sacrifice your most expensive chocolate on making them, because it’s overwhelmed by the sheer amount of sugar they contain.
These are a great way to meet people at university. Just bake a batch of these, and you’ll have loads of people wafting towards your flat, enticed by the delicious baking scents. Just make sure you don’t burn them, or everybody will be mad at you instead for setting off the shrieking godawful fire alarm.
