Brownie

Ingredients Preparation
  • 180g
    sugar
  • 4g
    eggs
  • 110g
    unsalted butter
  • 1spoon(s)
    almond flour
  • 1spoon(s)

  • Melt the chocolate together with the butter in a bain-marie.

Chocolate decoration

*Each chocolate in its box has its own heat curve. Check first.

  • Put the chocolate in a bowl in the bain-marie. Stir until it reaches 45-50 °C, then remove from the heat.
  • Keep 1/3 (100 g) of the melted chocolate to one side. Add solid chocolate to the other 200 g to reduce the temperature to 28-29 °C.
