who doesn’t like brownie? no one in the entire earth, right? I freaking love brownie in winter or summer, doesn’t matter. but what really matters it’s the chewy and fudgy consistence that you can give to it, because that’s how I like them!
that’s why I’m here today after a long time, to tell you the secret about how to bake a perfect brownie. so basically all you need it’s a good quality dark chocolate (75% at least) and melt it. that’s it fellas..melt the chocolate, don’t use chocolate powder, simple as that. the reason is that that’s gonna make the brownie even more fudgy than the usual.
and second part, the timing, check the consistence (from the minute 30) with a stick because you don’t want a caky brownie this time, you want a fudgy brownie.
(makes about 20 medium brownies)
· ingredients ·
250g unsalted butter
250g dark chocolate
350g caster sugar
6 large free range eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g plain flour
¼ tsp salt
· step by step ·
preheat the oven at 190ºC and prepare a rectangular baking tin lined with baking paper on the bottom.
melt the butter with the chocolate in a medium bowl at bain marie and once it’s done remove from the heat and let that cool.
in a big bowl pour the caster sugar and beat the eggs until looks a bit lighter.
add the vanilla extract, pour the melted chocolate and keep mixing until everything is well combined.
sift the flour and incorporate it to the mixture with the salt and mix it well.
put the walnuts in a plastic bag and smash them up with a rolling pin just a bit.
pour the walnuts in the baking tin and on the top pour all the brownie batter.
bake it for about 40min at 190ºC.
remove from the oven and let it cool for about 1h or 1:30hrs, and then cut them in little squares.
· tips ·
make sure you buy a really good quality chocolate for bests results, such as 75% or even more.
you can mix the walnuts with the brownie batter, but I just like them to be on the bottom.
be very careful with the baking timing, it really depends on your oven, so start to check the consistency of the brownie from the minute 30 so on.
obviously you can serve them with vanilla ice cream or just a simple whipped cream to make them even more bloody delicious!
