Work Catering Week 2: BROWNIES!

Week 2 of catering and I decided to make BROWNIES =D I didn't have heaps of time to bake so these brownies were a one pot wonder (and also less dishes to wash =p). I've made these berry and nut brownies before but this time they were thicker =D I also added pecans for a nice crunch :) 
Big tray of brownies! yum yum!! I ate the edges =p
You can find the recipe here. I just doubled it for a thicker brownie. These were definitely a HIT and got many nice comments (thanks everyone ^^).
Trying out some food photography xD
Ready for catering~
To cater for non-chocolate lovers and to balance out the sweetness I also made Lemon and Coconut "brownies"... that's what the recipe called them but I would rather call them a slice because they weren't "brown" and didn't contain chocolate =p I guess they use the same method as brownies e.g. melting butter in pot and stirring in eggs... 
anyways! I halved the amount of sugar (as per the comments made) and added more lemon zest and juice. I think you can increase the lemon for a tangier flavour.
Recipe adapted from

250g butter
1 cup caster sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
zest of 3 lemons
70ml fresh lemon juice
icing sugar, to dust

1. Preheat oven to 180oC. Line a 20 x 30cm pan with baking paper.
2. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Stir in sugar. 
3. Add eggs, 1 at a time and stir until mixture is thick and glossy.
4. Sift in the flour and stir till well combined. Stir in coconut, lemon zest and juice. Pour into prepared pan.
5. Bake for 30 minutes or until skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool then dust with icing sugar.
