So on this long weekend, we set off on our mission to Chingford, to explore a really large Morrisons. Amongst other things, we got some really nice dark chocolate and pecans , so I decided to make this brownie recipe.
Essentially made out of dark chocolate, this is a very gooey brownie, dark, dense and fudgy in the centre- more fudge than cake . If that’s the way you like your brownie, then do not look else where. This is just the recipe for you.
This is my most favourite brownie recipe- no -fuss and very easy to make. Add the pecans or walnuts for an extra crunch.
Although these brownies are a firm favourite with my friends and family , I must dedicate this recipe to Deep, the young, handsome, adorable teenage son of our family friend , who can single-handedly demolish a whole batch in one go!
Deep, this one is for you!
- Unsalted butter - 200gm
- Dark chocolate- 200 gm ( More than 70% cocoa works best)
- Eggs - 3
- Granulated Sugar - 300 gm
- Plain flour - 125 gm
- Vanilla extract - 2 tsp
- Salt - just a pinch
- Pecans/ Walnuts- 100g ( optional)
Preheat the oven to 180C
Grease and line a rectangular baking tray.. 9 by 10 inches or 8 by 12 inches should do it.
Chop the chocolate.
Put the chocolate pieces in a glass bowl sitting on the top of a pan full of simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not dip into the water.
Add the butter to the chocolate. Let everything melt and then take it off the pan. Set aside.
While the chocolate is melting, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla till you get a thick mixture.
Pour in the not so hot chocolate mixture. Stir in the flour and salt. Mix well.
Pour into the baking tin and bake for 20--25 minutes. by now, the top should be just about cracking and the centre of the cake is just set.
Let cool in the tin.
Cut into squares and serve.
I’m sure you will love this recipe, specially when you see how easy it is to make.
And the brownies- well, they will disappear , before you know it!
