Layered chocolate brownie

Layered chocolate brownie

Super easy but so effective I am amazed at how much of a wow factor I get every time I give this to someone new. You can use any jar you like or may have handy. This is a great gift for someone that is perhaps not such a great baker but loves the end result!

Layered chocolate brownie

Layer in the chosen jar in the following order:

1 ½ cups flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup cocoa
2/3 cup white sugar
½ cup chocolate chips – brown or white chocolate works well
2/3 cup brown sugar
½ cup silvered almonds

Write on the label

(you then tie this around the neck of the jar with ribbon or taffeta):

Just add
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk

Pour dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Mix wet with dry ingredients. Pour into a greased tin approximately 20cm in diameter. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 30 minutes.

Cool, cut into squares, dust with icing sugar.

Serve with fresh strawberries and cream, or equally as delicious on their own.
