Baking Club Challenge 2

So those of you who read my previous post about the bake club will know what I'm talking about, but just in case you haven't, you can read it here. :) The second challenge was brownies, so this time I went to Becca's house and Ashleigh came later and we made a day of it! We made some amazing-flavoured brownies and had a good laugh so hopefully they'll put a smile on your face too! The idea comes from The Londoner, but Becca and I made the brownies and the cookies from scratch-way better!

Slutty Brownies

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
150g butter
1t vanilla essence
3/4t baking powder
3/4t baking soda
1 7/8 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips

2/3 cup flour
2T cocoa powder
1/2t salt
150g chocolate bits
115g butter, cut into cubes
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten
1t vanilla extract

2 packets oreos

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a square 20cm pan. Cream the butter and the sugars together in a large bowl with an electric mixer. The mixture should be light coloured and fluffy. Add the vanilla and the egg and mix well. Add the flour and the baking powder and soda and mix together with a wooden spoon. When it's just about mixed, add the chocolate chips and mix well. Spread this layer of cookie dough (the consistency should be spreadable but not runny or anything) over the prepared pan

then layer the oreos over the top.

Then pour the brownie mixture over this, making sure to spread it to the edges.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is cracked but the brownie is still fudgy.

Sift together flour, cocoa, and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler or a medium-large bowl set over gently simmering water. Stir until smooth, then remove from heat. Whisk in sugars and stir until dissolved and mixture has cooled slightly. Whisk in eggs and vanilla extract until just combined (do not overmix). Sprinkle flour mixture over top and fold in to chocolate mixture using a large rubber spatula until just incorporated.
