Chocolate Cashew Nut Brownies

Have the urge to bake something for Christmas but it has been raining cats and dogs and i only have limited ingredients to do my baking, hence, i settled with this brownie, instead of the traditional way baking on baking tin i baked in in the tart mould and cupcake mould.

Here you go the recipe of my Chocolate Cashew Nut Brownies


225g softened butter, a little extra for greasing
150g black cooking chocolate button

4.Mix the self-raising flour with caster sugar.
5. Stir the beaten eggs into the melted chocolate mixture and pour the well mixed chocolate mixture into the self-raising flour and caster sugar mixture and beat well.
