French Lavender Brownies

DSC_4433

This is a very easy and fast recipe. I found it in one of the many French food magazines I buy every time I visit this beautiful country. And even though my French skills desperately need some updating, it turned out surprisingly well. I changed and adapted this recipe a little bit, but I’d still like to give full credit to the lovely French “Elle à Table” magazine.

Ingredients: 200 g dark chocolate, 200 g butter, 200 g sugar, 4 eggs, 100 g flour, 80-100 g ground almond or hazelnut, icing sugar and lavender flowers.

Melt butter and chocolate in a pot over low heat and let it cool. Beat eggs and sugar until the mass turns almost white, or at least 4 minutes. Add the chocolate butter mix, flour and ground almond or hazelnut and mix well. Use a square brownies tin and bake for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees. Decorate with icing sugar and Lavender flowers.
