 My favourite Brownies
A very Happy Diwali to all my readers, friends and family ! Well, this post was intended to be posted before Diwali and it didn’t make it to my space for various reasons. This recipe for my Favourite Brownies is insanely delicious and really easy to make.

We travelled to Brussels and Amsterdam the day after Diwali. Our first long trip in a year and half. It was all hullabaloo in the process of packing and putting things away for the 5-day trip and our excitement of meeting our friends after two years. So much of chit chatting , nonstop bantering ,insane giggling and a lot of antics is what happens when friends catch up after years.

Aah look , talking of the fabulous trip, I am going astray from the brownie bake and Diwali . We had a come together for Diwali ,something that we have been doing over the past 6 years, a week before the festival of lights. I wanted to carry the Brownies to treat the little ones and my grown-up friends.. In my previous post about the Orange Marmalade Cake, there was a mention about this brownies. I reiterate again, there was a lot of self thrust that I had planned for self all in a day.

I am calling these brownies my favorite and I have a reason behind it. With no fancy gadget , no patience to wait for the butter to come to room temperature and more , I just wanted some recipe that called for melting the butter, chocolate and all together in a pot and then mixing the flour and blah!!! This recipe did exactly what i wanted . I started my wild goose chase for an hour or soo , everywhere and wherever I felt the ingredients called for melting the butter and chocolate , I was game. Hardly could I boil down to one recipe where I have all the available ingredients in my pantry . Finally my chase was over and I came across my favourite recipe for Brownie at Smitten Kitchen!!A blog that requires no introduction. Every bakers bible and bakopedia. My inspiration for the first click on this page is from a blog thingwemake.

These brownies are absolutely fuzz free, chocolat’ y , bitter sweet and everything that you are looking for in a brownie.. An absolute winner for an under one hour product . The recipe specially called for unsweetened chocolate, but I have just used dark chocolate with 85% cocoa.Guess we have talked a lot about it and lets head to the recipe head- straight .

MY FAVOURITE BROWNIES
Prep Time: 10
minutes
Baking Time : 25-30
minutes
Total Time: 40
minutes
Yields: 25 squares
INGREDIENTS:
85gm Plain Flour
85gm Dark Chocolate, roughly chopped
115 gm Unsalted Butter
265gm Granulated Sugar
2 Large eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
DIRECTIONS:
  • Preheat
    the fan assisted oven to 350 F, gas mark 4. Line a 9” Baking pan with a
    parchment paper, extending it all the way up. This will help us to pull the
    paper out of the pan once the brownie cools down.
  • Prepare a double boiler, by placing a small
    sauce pan/ bowl over a pan of hot water. Fill the bottom pan with 1” of water
    and allow it to boil. Reduce to simmer. Break the chocolate pieces into small
    equal pieces and add them along with the butter to the small sauce pan that
    sits on the pan of water. Stir them until they melt. This process will only
    take a couple of minutes.  If you are
    looking to understand how to handle chocolates, read my post on Homemade
    Chocolates
  •  Whisk the egg, one at a time, followed by
    sugar and vanilla essence. Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon, mixing the
    batter well. Spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake it for 25-30
    Minutes. My brownie came out batter-clean, when I inserted the skewer at 25
    minutes.
  • Allow them to cool down. Cut the brownie bake
    into size that suits you. I got 25 bite sized brownie pieces .
