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...
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!.
