Just made really good chocolate brownies with Lia. The "secret" ingredient is raw tehina. This is a staple in the average Israeli fridge, not sure how easy it is to find elsewhere. Here's the recipe, it's really easy. Sorry for the grams and celsius dear Americans! Here's how to make chocolate brownies, with a taste of Israel.
100 g 60% dark chocolate
100 g butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
Splash of milk
1 tbsp tehina (more if you like it)
1 heaped tsp cocoa
Chocolate chips for decoration.
Melt the chocolate with the butter in a bowl over a saucepan if hot water (bain marie) Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Pour into a medium sized lined tin and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Bake for 18 mins at 180 celcius
