Brownies Recipe

Here is a classic treat for chocolate lovers.  This  receipe is from famous celeberity cook Nigella Lawson.  I love to watch her cooking shows in TLC.

Actually this receipe calls for nearly 40 - 45 brownies, but I reduced the quantity into half and also omitted walnuts and chocohips. 

This chocolate treat is easy to make and great to munch at any time of the day.

Ingredients (20 - 25 pieces)

Butter – 190 grams
Dark chocolate – 190 grams
Eggs – 3
Caster sugar – 250 grams
Vanilla extract – 2 tsp
plain flour – 115 grams
Salt – ½ tsp
Walnuts or choco chips - 150 grams (optional) 

Preheat oven to 180 deg. C and prepare the baking tin; keep aside.

Melt the butter and dark chocolate in a double boiler or microwave oven (I have kept in microwave oven for 1 minute). Take it out and give it a mix. Allow to cool.

Sift together flour, salt and keep aside.

In a bowl, beat the eggs with the caster sugar (powdered) and vanilla essence.

Stir the chocolate butter mixture and then fold in flour and nuts or chocolate chip.
(Remember to cool down completely, otherwise it will become scrambled egg)

Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking tin and bake on preheated oven at 180 deg. C
for 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
(When it is ready, the top should be in light brown colour, but the middle is dark and dense).

Cut into pieces and enjoy the brownies with ice cream or eat as it is.
