Brownies contestant #3

ok.. back on the track.. closing all the orders for now, it is time for my pleasure...

my son keep asking me to make some choc cake.i did , steamed choc cake (lazy mode) but still didn't satisfies you want cake layered with choc mousse? nope... choc cheese cake?nope.. whatever then.. its 10.30 pm after dinner, dishwashing etc... time for 'Planet of the Apes ' movie ... with mr husband the movie man.. i can see there is butter.... some ground hazelnuts... some choc bar.. still have some eggs... ok then... im making brownies again, testing another recipe... adapted from taste goblet, thank you for sharing

compared to the other recipes, this one used less flour ratio so it tends to have more moisture and fudgy texture.. i must say between cake and chocolate son loved it but my husband prefer brownies contestant#1.. me? mmmmm...

Ingredients u need...

¾ cup butter i used about 170 gm after conversion
1 ½ cups sugar
2 eggs
3 tsp vanilla

½ cup cocoa powder

¾ cup plain flour
¾ cup pecans (or any other nuts)* i omit this one as my son doesn't like nuts but i replaced with 1/2 cup of ground hazelnuts

½ cup white chocolate buttons*
½ cup dark chocolate chunks/chips*
*i used both equal to 1 cup of chocolate chunk because that was available at that moment

How to make ?

As i mentioned before, just don't worry about the technicalities

  • Started with chocolate and butter.For a safer mode... melt both using the brain marie@ double boil method (pls refer to previous post) where u melt the chocolate on the water bath/steamed.Set aside
  • Done that.In a bowl, put all the other ingredients in.The eggs, flour,cocoa, vanilla and nuts if u do.
  • Pour the melted choc into the bowl and beat it vigorously (i loved this part) with wooden spoon.You'll get a thick runny and shiny batter.Some of the recipes ask you to add the eggs and beat in the melted chocolate and butter... i've done it in the previous but this one i just throw everything in.. the result is still the same, so don't worry so much ok..
  • Lastly, pour the batter into the baking tray.Bake it at 180'c at about half an hour or so, really depend on the oven and the size of ur baking tray.If you wish to have a gooey texture, bake it in less time.

You can served it while its hot but my husband prefer if it comes from the fridge.
