Quarantine Eats: Nutella Swirl Chocolate Brownies

115 grams (1/2 cup or 1 stick) unsalted butter
150 grams (1 cup) good quality dark chocolate, broken into pieces
300 grams (1 cup) Nutella
50 grams (1/4 cup) caster sugar
90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
85 grams (2/3 cup) plain flour

1 - Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F). Grease and line a square 8-inch cake tin with baking or parchment paper, ensuring two sides of the paper overhang.

2 - Place butter and dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl and place in the microwave. Heat, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Add 1/2 cup of Nutella (set the other 1/2 cup aside) and stir together.

3 - Next, add sugars and vanilla to the chocolate mixture and stir. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring in between. Finally, add the flour and stir until the brownie mixture is smooth.

4 - Pour batter into the prepared tin. Then dollop the other 1/2 cup of Nutella all over the top and use a butter knife to swirl it into the brownie batter.

5 - Bake the brownie for about 35 minutes or until cooked through. It should have a nice cracked top and no longer wobble in the middle. Leave to cool completely before serving. Store brownies in the fridge to make them extra fudgy.
