CHOCOLATE BROWNIES RECIPE ..for the Birthday Boy

Print Friendly and PDF
I already have posted a Brownie recipe in my blog but today I am posting another brownie recipe with a variation.The earlier version I posted was with cocoa powder where as today's version is prepared with rich dark chocolate.We are never tired of brownies and always search for a new recipe as both of us like brownies very much.I have tried this recipe from Joy of Baking site and I must say that this is a perfect recipe for chocolate Brownies.
Hubby is a huge fan of Brownies and always prefer a brownie or a tea cake over the cream loaded cakes.Today is a special day as it is his birthday and also my in-laws visited us to celebrate the birthday .I already baked an 'Eggless Dates Cake' in the morning for a formal sweet to start this special day and a special Cheese cake is under preparation for the evening celebrations.I would like to wish him on this occasion with his favorite Brownie.
Chocolate Brownies Recipe:
(makes 16 Brownies)
Source: Joy of Baking

Ingredients:
5 ounces (150 grams) semisweet or bittersweet Chocolate,chopped
3/4 cup (95 grams) All-purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) (113 grams) unsalted Butter, cut into pieces
2 tbsp (15 grams) Cocoa powder
1 cup (200 grams) granulated white Sugar
1 tsp pure Vanilla extract
3 large Eggs
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Walnuts,roughly chopped
3/4 cup (125 grams) Semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
Method:
  • Preheat oven to 350 deg F (180 deg C) and place the rack in the center of the oven.
  • Butter (or spray with a nonstick cooking spray) an 8 inch (20 cm) square pan, and line the bottom of the pan with parchment or wax paper.I used a thin 8*10 rectangular brownie pan as I wanted a thin brownies.
  • Melt the chocolate and butter by a double boiler method 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. Finally, stir in the flour, salt,walnuts and chocolate chips (if using).
  • Pour into the prepared pan upto 1/3 of its height.If you have some extra batter pour into another small pan.
  • Bake it 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.Cut into 16 squares.
Serve at room temperature.You can refrigerate it for 3-4 days,just microwave for few seconds before serving.

Serving Suggestions:
  • Warm it up in Microwave and serve it hot with Vanilla Ice-cream and chocolate sauce over it.
Notes:
  1. You can freeze these brownies for a month,when ever you need you just need to pop them in microwave for few seconds and a fresh warm brownie is ready.
  2. Do not fill the cake tin more than 1/3rd as it will make your brownies very thick,pour the extra batter in another small pan and bake if you feel the batter is more.
