Black Forest Brogurt for 20p - Mixed Berry Frozen Yogurt and No Butter Brownies

This recipe was a complete accident! I was having a bad day - the kind that only rich, dark, lush chocolate can put right, it was late evening and there was nothing sweet in the house so I grabbed a brownie recipe and set to making them while arguing with my ex (again) about why it would never work between us. I chucked the eggs in a bowl, beat the hell out of them with a whisk (rather than bashing my ex over the head with it) beat in the sugar, melted the chocolate then folded that in with the flour and cocoa. I banged it in the oven and left it to cook. It wasn't until the brownies were cooked that I realised I had forgotten the butter! I could tell straight away from the way the brownies looked but I couldn't remake them because I had used all the ingredients in this batch and I'm not into waste so i thought 'oh well' and ate one. Wow! I had just made the best brownies ever, rich, indulgent and chewy. The following day I thought ' I bet these taste great with that frozen berry yogurt I made the other day' and so Black Forest Brogurt was born.
