It’s exam time and my son who is giving his board exams has been studying very hard. I wanted to make something special for him. He loves all chocolate based desserts and brownie is one of his most favourite.
I saw this recipe is one the you tube videos. I liked it very much. It’s a very simple recipe and brownies were indeed very delicious. To me this is the best brownie recipe that I have tried till now:)
Dark Chocolate- 11/2 cups
Butter- 3/4th cup
Instant coffee powder- 1 tsp
Sugar- 1 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Cocoa powder- 1 tbsp
All purpose flour- 3/4th cup
Chocolate ganache ( optional)- 1/2 cup
Choco chips- 2 tbsps
Preheat the oven to 180 deg cel.
Grease and dust a square( 8/8 inch) or a rectangular baking tray.
Add 3/4th cup of dark chocolate and the butter in a pan and melt the chocolate using double boiler method.
Or you can microwave it.
I kept in the microwave for 2 mins. Mix the chocolate and butter well till it becomes a smooth sauce.
Add a tsp of instant coffee powder and mix well.
Add 1 cup of sugar and beat well.
Now add the eggs one by one, beating the mixture well after adding each egg.
Add vanilla essence, salt and cocoa powder
and mix well.
Add the flour, mix well and add the remaining dark chocolate. Beat well again and pour in the greased and dusted baking tray.
Bake in the preheated oven ( 180 deg cel)
and bake for 35- 40 secs or till it done ( when you insert a skewer in the middle of the cake, it should come out clean).
Remove from the oven. Cool it completely before cutting.
You can serve it without any frosting.
I had some chocolate ganache with me.
I frosted the brownies with the ganache and sprinkled some choco chips before serving them with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream:)
