Plate Up. Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

In my book, brownies trump both cakes and muffins. There's just something about their tacky goodness that will always make me choose them over their baked compatriots. Hence I'm always in search of a good chocolate brownie recipe which is exactly what I have for you today, and, it's dead easy! Get a load of this...

What you'll need
Butter for greasing
1 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 egg
100g milk chocolate, grated
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
7 tablespoons water
A few dollops of your favourite peanut butter

What to do
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and grease a rectangular slice tin.

Combine all your ingredients in a bowl, aside from the peanut butter, and mix well.

Have a little taste just to errr check everything's good... [Chronic batter eater over here I'll admit.]

Pour into your tin and distribute evenly. Then plop a few dollops of your favourite peanut butter around the place. It's all in the wrist motion here.

Swirl these through the mixture and stick it in the oven. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Whilst it's cooking ensure you lick the bowl and the peanut butter spoon because it would be sacrilege not to, right?

Whip that baby out of the oven when it's looking nice and tacky. Leave to sit and cool for 10 minutes - I know it's tough but you have to wait - and then cut a slice to have with your cuppa and enjoy.
