Finally after ages I decided to cook for my blog. Its not that I ever stopped enjoying cooking but cooking for blog is totally different.....try something new then look for the right dish and setting and finally the photo shoots. I cannot blame my long break on anyone or anything just that my head was filled with a lot of stuffs and I wanted out of everything. Now that I am back from home everything feeling better. Visiting everyone made me realize that there are people who believe in my cooking so I am back :) .
I decided to make something sweet, a sweet way to say sorry to my blog - BUON APPETITO. Among all the possible sweet dishes I picked Brownie. I have had a lot of brownie over time and have been planning to make one soon and finally today seemed to be a good day :) . The fact that they're incredibly easy to make is an added bonus. All you need is one bowl , one spatula and one pan. No mixers or any fancy techiques yet the outcome is very rewarding....a perfect dish.
Do you think there is anything called Perfect Brownie ??? I kind of doubt that. Some like it with dry fruits - nuts and raisins , some like it with chocolate chips and yet others like it with icing. Not that I am against any of those brownies but I am a fan of the warm fudgy one. So when I decided to make my very first Brownie I wanted to my favourite kind so I made Fudgy Chocolate Brownie inspired by Donna Hay's recipe.
|Dark Chocolate,chopped||1 cup|
|Demerara sugar||1/2 cup|
|Cocoa Flour||1/2 cup|
|Plain Flour||1 cup|
- Preheat oven to 160C. Butter and flour the sides of a square shaped cake tin and set it aside.
- Pour milk in a saucepan over low heat and let it get warm. See that it does not boil.
- Add the chocolate and butter to the same saucepan and stir until smooth. Allow this mixture to cool down slightly.
- In a bowl, whisk eggs and the 2 sugars till the sugar dissolves.
- Add the cocoa and flour in a bowl and mix well but not heavily.
- Finally add the chocolate mixture and mix until combined.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes at 160C or till a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
- Allow to cool slightly in the tin before slicing.
