Sourdough Chocolate Brownies

I was recently invited to take part in Sourdough Surprises but unfortunately their reveal day is the same day as my Group C reveal day for SRC. So as to not ‘miss’ out on this month’s challenge, I decided to go ahead and make the sourdough chocolate brownies, and post the recipe even though I have not joined the linky party. I am so in love with my sourdough that I will try and make anything using it. I will follow the group each month to see what their challenge is, so be sure to follow me if you want to see my progress with using my sourdough starter. These brownies are an adaptation of my trusty recipe and had a lovely deep note of chocolate to them. I used marshmallows for the ooey gooey aspect and I can tell you that there are very moreish – make a batch at the peril of your own waistline, or make them when you know you can share them out among friends and family.

do you like your brownies plain or with an addition of something else?
