Sticky Mud Brownies - Red Tractor May

This month's Red Tractor calendar recipe is Sticky Mud Brownies.  It is accompanied by the following quote: 

I totally agree with that - you don't feel like you need to check yourself with true friends.

This recipe is super easy and gets a great result, so without further ado, here is the recipe:

125g melted butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup chopped hazelnuts
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used white chips)

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.

Whisk to butter, sugar and oil together in a bowl for a minute.  Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk for another minute. Fold in the flour, cocoa and salt with a rubber spatula.  Fold in the hazelnuts and chocolate chips.

Scrape the batter into the prepared baking tin and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the centre feels set to the touch. 

Allow the brownies to cool in the tin to room temperature, then remove from the tin and cut into 16 squares.  Dust with icing sugar before serving, if desired.
