Fudgy Brownies




There are various Brownies recipes, totally chocolate, nutty or even zebra that have a layer of cream cheese in between. What makes Brownies the way they are, be it cakey, chewy or fudgy, depends on the way the ingredients are combined. Cakey ones use butter creamed with sugar and a good amount of flour, while fudgy ones are made with melted butter or vegetable oil and less flour, hence nice and dense.



Recipe for Fudgy Brownies

Ingredients
:
  • 8 oz Bittersweet Couverture (Cooking Chocolate)
  • 10 Tablespoons Cannola/Corn/Olive Oil
  • 200 gm coarsely chopped Walnuts
  • 100 gm Ground Almonds
  • 4 Eggs
  • 4 oz Caster Sugar
  • 2 oz Plain Flour
  • 1 Teasp. Baking Soda
  • 1 Teasp. Vanilla
Method :

1. Grease and flour an 8 inch square or 8 x 10 inch rectangular baking pan.
2. Sift the flour with the baking soda and set aside.
3. Break the cooking chocolate into pieces, put in the top of a double boiler to melt.
4. Once it starts to melt, blend and stir in the oil, remove from heat and set aside.
5. Cream the eggs with the sugar till light and fluffy. Add in the ground almonds and mix well.
6. Add in the melted chocolate mixture little by little and mix well.
7. Lightly fold in the sifted flour, little by little, mix well.
8. Add in the coarsely chopped walnuts, and stir to blend.
9. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, bake in preheated oven at 350 deg.F/180 deg.C for about 45 to 50 minutes, or just firm to the touch in the centre. Also insert a skewer to test till it comes out clean.
10. Leave to cool in the tin. Cut into pieces once cold.
11. Serve on its own or with a dollop of ice cream.

Note :
The time taken to bake the Brownies, also depends on the thickness, if the pan is bigger, resulting in thinner Brownies, then the baking time is slightly shorter. This needs to be monitored.
