Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate melts (I use Cadbury)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup banana, mashed (3-4 bananas)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
cream cheese icing
  • 250 grams cream cheese, room temperature
  • 100 grams butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Melt the butter in a small pot over a medium heat. Once melted, add the chocolate and stir until melted. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, banana, salt and vanilla.
  4. Add melted chocolate and flour. Mix until combined.
  5. Pour into the lined baking tray and bake for around 35 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.
  6. Do not overcook! Remove from the oven when they are still slightly sticky, or you will have dry brownies.
  7. Once cooled, mix all icing ingredients until light and fluffy.
  8. Using a knife or spatula, ice the top of the brownies and slice into pieces. Add sliced fresh banana to the top before serving.
