Hot cross bun brownies
|2-3||hot cross buns — cut into cubes and lightly toasted|
|1 cup||butter — melted|
|1 tsp||vanilla essence|
|1/2 cup||cocoa powder|
|1 1/2 cup||flour|
|1/2 tsp||baking powder|
Line a 20cm square tin with baking paper and top with a layer of toasted hot cross bun chunks.
Mix butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla essence together.
Add cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
Add half of the batter to the tin, top with some hot cross bun chunks and then allow the batter to rest for a few minutes.
Bake at 180C for 40 minutes or until just cooked, they should still be fudgy. Allow to cool and set before cutting.
Be sure not to overcook, else they will be cakey and dry.
