Elsie May’s Father’s Day Guinness Brownies 

Brownies:

200ml Guinness, 100g dark chocolate, 250g unsalted butter, softened, 350g caster sugar, 3 medium eggs, beaten, 100g plain flour, 70g cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp salt and 100g chocolate chips.  

Guinness syrup: 

80ml Guinness, 60g light brown sugar, Icing sugar to dust or melted dark chocolate to drizzle and Ice cream or clotted cream to serve. 

Method 

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C. Grease and line with baking parchment a 23cm x 28cm brownie tin 

  1. First make the brownies. In a saucepan, heat the Guinness on a medium heat and simmer until it’s reduced by half. Set aside to cool.  

  1. In a bowl, gently melt 50g butter and the dark chocolate (either in the microwave or in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water). Once melted, set aside to cool. 

  1. In another bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, eggs, flour and cocoa powder. Then add the melted butter and chocolate mixture and reduced Guinness until fully combined. 

  1. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips and once incorporated, transfer to the brownie tin. 

  1. Bake for about 30-40 mins until the brownie no longer wobbles. 

  1. While the brownie is baking, make the Guinness syrup. In a saucepan, heat the Guinness and sugar on a medium heat and simmer until it’s reduced by half. Set aside to cool slightly. 

  1. Once the brownie has baked, take it out of the oven and while it is still warm, drizzle over the Guinness syrup (you may not need all of it). Leave to cool completely in the tin. 

  1. Serve with a dusting of icing sugar or a drizzle of melted chocolate, and then dollop on a nice big scoop of ice cream or clotted cream.
