My son’s 12th board exams got over today. He has been working really very hard for the past few months. So, I wanted to make a small treat for him.
Brownies are his favourite. Few days back I saw a video in you tube showing brownie cups. I liked that idea.
It was a good occasion to try that today. You can use any of your favourite brownie recipe.
I have a made eggless brownie cups today which I served with chocolate ice cream with a generous drizzle of chocolate sauce:)
Butter ( at room temperature) – 1/2 cup
Dark Chocolate – 1 cup
Instant coffee powder- 1 tsp
All purpose flour ( Maida)-1/2 cup
Cocoa powder- 1/3rd cup
Condensed milk- 1 tin ( 400gms)
Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt- 2 pinches
Grease 2 muffin trays which has 6 moulds each.
Grease another 2 muffin trays on the outerside and kept it aside.
Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler or microwave.
I microwaved it for 1 min 30 secs.
Blend it well till it becomes very smooth.
Dissolve the instant coffee powder in 2 tbsps of water, add to the chocolate mixture and mix well.
Add the condensed milk and mix well again.
Preheat the oven to 180 deg cel.
Sieve the maida, cocoa powder and baking powder. Add this along with 2 pinches of salt to the chocolate mixture and mix well again.
Pour in greased muffin trays and bake in preheated oven for 30- 35 mins.
It’s done when a tooth pick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Remove the trays from and immediately press the second muffin tin into the brownies. Keep both tins pressed together until the brownies are cool.
Add a scoop of ice cream and top with chocolate sauce and serve immediately:)
