Ingredients


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound strawberries, sliced
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped


Directions

Melt the chocolate into the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat and let cool.


Mix the sugar into the eggs along with the vanilla extract.


Sift the flour, baking powder and salt.


Mix the melted chocolate into the egg mixture followed by the flour mixture.


Pour the batter into a greased (optionally foil lined) 8 inch baking pan and bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until a toothpick pushed into the centre comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes.


Sprinkle the strawberries on top of the brownies.


Melt the chocolate over medium-low heat on the stove or in a microwave, pour it over the strawberries and let cool until the chocolate is set, about 30-60 minutes.


Option: Add 2 tablespoons cocoa powder to the flour. (For an even deeper chocolaty flavour!)
Option: Add 1 teaspoon finely ground coffee to the flour. (The coffee really brings out or enhances the chocolate flavour!)
Option: Replace the butter with coconut oil.
Option: Replace the some or all of the granulated sugar with coconut sugar or brown sugar.
Option: Replace the flour with rice flour for gluten-free.
