Heylo! The most requested recipe is here (finally!). You all wanted me to put up this Chocolate Brownies recipe ever since I baked and posted a couple on my Instagram in August. First off, sorry for the extreme delay and secondly, I wanted to do this the right way. You know, with all the details and everything. Make sure you go through each and every step to achieve the brownie consistency that you desire. The same recipe can give you gooey-textured brownies as well as fudge-like brownies, depending how long you leave it in the oven.
If you’re wondering how to get that classic brownie crack on your brownies; it’s ABC simple: it depends on how well you beat the eggs and sugar to create a mixture that closely resembles a meringue mixture. During baking, the sugars and the eggs separate creating multiple layers; the topmost being a hard crust (like a meringue).
Without further ado, let’s get baking this chocolatey goodness!
- Large eggs 3
- White Flour 1/4 cup
- Powdered Sugar 1 cup (slightly heaped)
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder 1/2 cup
- Unsalted Butter 1/2 cup (melted and cooled)
- Vanilla Essence 1/4 tsp
- Salt A pinch
- Walnuts 2 tbsps. (chopped)
- A 6 inches brownie tin or any square tin
- A Beater or Stand Mixer
- A Rubber Spatula
- Measuring Cups and Spoons
- Parchment Paper or Butter Paper
- A Sieve or Flour Sifter
- A Large Bowl
- Electric or Gas Oven
First and foremost step before baking anything is to preheat the oven. Preheat oven at 150ºC for 15 mins.
OPTIONAL STEP: Fold walnuts, chocolate chips, crushed cookies or anything that you like. Reduce sugar by 1/4 cup if your adding something sweet. I chose walnuts this time.
For Gooey Texture: Bake for 15 mins. Poke a skewer and check that the mixture sticks to it.
For Fudgy Texture: Bake for 20 mins . Poke a skewer and check that little to no mixture is sticking.
Note: Timings may vary due to different oven types.
Hope you like this recipe and that it turns out amazingly well for you as it does for me ❤
