Chewy Fudgy Brownies


I made it! My girl has been asking for a chewy brownies... I browsed through Mamafami's blog and found this recipe. It is chewy and lovely to be eaten immediately after baking.

Ingredients :

250g unsalted butter ~ cubed
400g cooking chocolate ~ cubed
6 eggs
340g brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
20g chocolate emulco
80g flour
60g cocoa powder
140g walnut/pecan/almond/macadamia (optional) ~ chopped and toasted

Method :
1. Layer a 12" x 12" tray with greaseproof paper. Ensure that the paper is longer than the tray for easier removal of the brownies from the tray.
2. Melt butter and cooking chocolate using a double-boiler. Set aside till lukewarm.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, vanilla essence and chocolate emulco  till the sugar dissolves.
4. Pour the butter and chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. Mix well.



5. Add sifted flour and cocoa powder into the mixture. Do not overmix.
6.  Add in the toasted nuts.
6. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in a preheated oven at 160 C for 1 hour or till done. The temperature and the baking time depends on your oven.
7. Leave the brownies  to cool completely on a wire rack before cutting. Brownies is best eaten after leaving it overnight. (But I love them freshly from the oven).
8. You can cover the top of the brownies with ganache. You can also eat the brownies with icecream, custard sauce or deulce de leche or simply enjoy them the way they are.
