Rainy Sunday afternoon

So, when the weather looks like this on a Sunday afternoon in Canberra:
(Pouring with rain in case you can't tell from the photo), what's a girl to do?? That's simple - bake. I decided to make my trademark triple chocolate brownies, but try using chopped chocolate instead of the chocolate chips I usually use (purely through laziness!) First you start with this:
Mmmm, dark chocolate and butter... Then you melt them together in a double boiler and set them aside to cool. Next take caster sugar and eggs and your handy electric beater, and beat them until they look like this:
Then once the chocolate and butter mixture has cooled (otherwise it cooks the egg, and that would just be grooooooooooooooooooss), pour it into the egg and sugar mixture, and fold it through like this:
Then you add plain flour and cocoa:
And chopped milk and white chocolate:
And then you mix it altogether and pour it into a pan and stick it in the oven, and after about 40 minutes, you get this:

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, brownies... And, while you're waiting for the brownies to cool so that you can cut them, you can watch Life of Brian - "He's not the Messiah! He's a very naughty boy!!" It's not quite "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries!", but it'll do... ;)
