Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius (fan-forced) and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.

  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the vanilla extract, eggs, plain flour and Kahlua and whisk to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 35 minutes.
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely in the tin before making the Chocolate Kahlua Icing.
