Chocolate Brownies


Chocolate Brownies

These  "chocolatey" treat which i baked over the weekend, were super soft and wonderfully moist, Not too fudgy or cakey... they just melt in your mouth, I loved the beautiful dry cracked  crust which formed on to top of these brownies!

Thanks for my sister ,who persuaded me into baking these lovelies ..obviously her pics did...



Here is the recipe:

150g semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chopped

1/2 cup (1 stick) (113 grams) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

2 tablespoons (15 grams) cocoa powder

1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3 large eggs

3/4 cup (95 grams) all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup chopped cashew nuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) .


 2. Butter (or spray with a nonstick cooking spray) an 8 inch (20 cm) square pan, and line the bottom of the pan with baking sheet.

3. Melt the chocolate and butter in a large stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat and stir in the cocoa powder and sugar . Next, whisk in the vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.


4. Finally, stir in the flour, salt and chopped cashew nuts (if using).

5.Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a little batter and a few moist clumps clinging to it. Do not over bake. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. Serve at room temperature or chilled. 



These freeze really well and tastes great!.
