Brownies are wonderful “cakey” or “fudgy” type of dessert which goes superbly well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or just plain…Am I right? I have tried many different type of brownies and this recipe brings me a complete satisfaction in terms of slight crispness on the outside and soft chewy texture on the inside. Addition of dark chocolate morsels gives it a nice chocolatey flavor and no one can eat just one!
Servings- 16 pieces
All purpose flour- 3/4 cup
Sugar- 1 cup
Salt- 1/4 tsp
Pure vanilla extract- 1tsp
Large eggs- 3 at RT
Unsalted butter- 1 stick or 1/2 cup (cut into squares)
Dutch processed cocoa powder- 2 tbsp
Bitter sweet chocolate chopped- 5 oz
Dark chocolate morsels- 3/4 cup
Pre heat the oven to 350 degree F. In a medium heat proof saucepan, add bitter-sweet chocolate and pieces of unsalted butter.
Microwave for a minute or 2 until the mixture forms a smooth paste. (Do not boil the mixture, they have to just melt). Add sugar, pure vanilla extract and mix well. Add in the eggs one by one and give it a quick stir. Now add, all-purpose flour, cocoa powder and salt.
Mix until no lumps are visible. Finally add the dark chocolate morsels and stir. Pour the mixture to a 8 inch greased square pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Perfect brownies are done when little crumbs stick to the tooth pick when inserted.
