Brownies with Milk

 

For the first 16 years of my life, I never had brownies. In Norway, they bake lots of cakes, especially chocolate cake, but they tend to not make brownies. Then a friend of mine made a batch, and I have been trying to make them ever since, with varying success. Until this recepy was sent to me.

225g dark chocolate
100g unsalted butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 tbs cocoa powder
1/3 cup flower
1/2 chopped nuts (optional)

175 C, 20-25 min

-Melt butter and chocolate in a pan. Set aside to cool.
-Line and grease a baking pan. Preheat oven.
-Whisk eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Do not hesitate to whisk some more.
-Add vanilla and salt while still whisking.
-Sift cocoa and flour into the bowl, gently fold it through the batter. Make sure this is done gently to not lose the fluffy texture.
-Gently pour the chocolate mixture into the batter and again fold carefully. Add the nuts if you are using them at this stage.
-Pour everything into the baking pan, spread evenly to the edges, smooth with a spatula.
-Bake 10 min, rotate the pan, then bake for another 10. When a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean, the brownies are done.

TIP: for my last batch, I doubled the recepy, then cooked it 10min, rotate, 10min, rotate, 15min. It gives you higher brownies, with lots of chocolatty goodness. I did not use nuts.

DO NOT OVERCOOK, they just become hard and dry if you do.

Enjoy the chocolatty goodness.
