Yummy Brownies....:)

My kids favourite food is brownies even if I make millions they'll gulp it down in a matter of Mins. Therefore I try and make them as often as possible. I have tried a lot of recipes but this particular one is simple and easy to make. I once borrowed a book from the library called kitchen for kids, if you have kids a must have kind of book. I followed the basic idea and measurements and added a few of my touches to the recipe, and it works really well. One most important tip is that the darker the sugar the darker the brown colour you'll get in your brownies, and better the taste.

So here we go with a twist on these brownies....

  • 3, 30gs squares chocolate
  • 115 g unsalted butter cut into pieces.
  • 15o ml or 2/3 cup brown sugar (any will do)
  • 125 ml or 1/2 cup granulated golden sugar.
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder ( caramel flavour)
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract/essence
  • 150 ml or 2/3 cup plain flour
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 deg F /180 deg C.
  2. Grease and line the tin with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl heat the chocolate and butter slightly just enough that is its easily mixing to a smooth consistency.
  4. In a bowl add brown sugar and break it well with a whisk before adding granulated golden sugar,cocoa powder,eggs,oil and vanilla essence and mix well.
  5. Add in this the chocolate mixture prepared before.Blend well.
  6. Now add flour spoonfuls first than mix well again.
  7. Put in the baking dish and bake about 20 Mins or until nice and springy.
  8. Cool before removing from the pan.
In brownies one has to know the right time to remove it from the oven depending on what you really like.i like them a bit mushy and fudgey so take them out of the oven a bit earlier as i said 20 Mins. but if you like them more crumbly or dry wait another 10 Mins. I usually make them with my kids because its easy and ready in Mins. hope you all like it...enjoy another treat to impress...:~}
