Dark chocolate & walnuts.. whatta brilliant combination..!!! Love it..!! K wanted to have some brownies.. & I’m not a huge fan of hazelnuts.. checked the pantry if I had a packet of walnuts..n hurrah… I did find a packet. 🙂 The rest does not require to be told.. Mixed the ingredients as I ate my bowl of pasta for lunch.. Yup multi-tasking.. & I only rested when the heavenly aroma of the brownie baking away, started filling up the house… 🙂
Basic ingredients are what you require for these.. yummy is not the right word.. the best way to describe is “A slice of heaven”.. 🙂
Remember, it’s not a cake.. so don’t wait to bake it till a toothpick comes out clean…. If you do.. then its a chocolate cake!.
Happy days are here again….!! Been a long time since I posted two recipe’s on a day.. 🙂 Guess I’m making for all those days when I won’t be able to add posts…!!
Ingredients: (Serves 8-10 ) Preparation Time: 40-45 mins
Plain flour – 1 cup/150g
Cocoa Powder – 80g
Light brown sugar – 1 cup/175g
Vanilla extract – 2 tsp
Baking Powder – 1 tsp
Eggs – 3
Walnuts – a handful, chopped
Vegetable Oil – 200 ml
Line a 25cm baking tin with grease-proof paper & keep aside.
Sift the flour, baking powder & cocoa powder into a large mixing bowl & keep aside.
In another mixing bowl, mix together the sugar & the oil. Add eggs one by one, mixing after adding each one in, using a hand mixer. Add the vanilla extract. Mix well.
Pre-heat the oven to 160 degree C.
Now add the wet ingredients to the dry & fold.
Don’t over mix.
Transfer the gooey brownie batter to the prepared tin. Add the chopped walnuts evenly on the top of the batter.
Bake for around 25 minutes once the oven pre-heats. You don’t want to overcook this, unlike cakes, you don’t want a skewer to come out all clean. The brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle.
Allow to cool in the tray, then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and cut into large chunky pieces.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice-cream. Creme fraiche also makes a tasty accompaniment with them.
If your someone like me who can’t wait to have accompaniments.. just eat them as is.. 🙂
This is the picture I uploaded via Instagram. I did not want to wait to work on the pictures from my camera for this post.. !!
