Rich, Cakey, Chocolatey Goodness !!
I bet you are smiling already. 🙂
This is one thing I have found hard to resist. Even though they are easy to make at home, next time I would rather but them by the piece just to keep my weight loss goal on track. I found couple of recipes with slight variations in amount of chocolate, cocoa powder and eggs used. The one I used came from my colleague’s mom. She has been baking these brownies for last 50 years, how wonderful is that! I think i did a good justice to her recipe and made them more special by baking them on Valentine’s day.
- semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped - 5 ounces
- unsalted butter, cut into cubes - 1/2 cup ( 1 stick )
- cocoa powder - 3 table spoons
- sugar - 1 cup
- pure vanilla extract - 1 tea spoon
- eggs - 3
- All purpose flour - 3/4 cup
The Secret –
The time you take out the brownies out of the oven is very crucial. A few minutes could turn rich moist brownies into hard ones. Test with a toothpick or a skewer inserted into the middle, it should come out sticky with a little batter and a moist clumps clinging to it. If it comes out clean, you have overbaked them.
