Chocolate Brownies

Let's begin this new week with some rich chocolate brownies. Pack some in your bag and munch it during your break. Good idea? Who can resist brownies. Brownies are baked square bars with rich and dense chocolate. They are very famous in the U.S and a popular lunch box item. A high energy treat.Wow! Chocolate-y goodness in the lunch box. I love chocolate in any form and in a brownie its even better. It is so crunchy and chewy. I got to taste brownies for the first time when Ria baked it for us. It was just awesome!! 

So here it is ...Enjoy!



INGREDIENTS
Recipe Source : Ria

All Purpose Flour - 1 1/4 cup
Cocoa Powder - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Chocolate - 310 gm
Unsalted Butter - 1 cup
Granulated Sugar - 1 1/2 cup
Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup
Eggs - 5
Vanilla Essence - 2 tsp



METHOD
Preheat oven to 175 degree C.
Whisk flour, cocoa powder and salt.
Chop the chocolate and butter into pieces.
In a double boiler , melt the butter and chocolate together.
When it is melted,  remove from fire and add in sugar till it dissolves.
Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
Once cooled add 3 eggs and stir.
Then add 2 eggs and vanilla essence. Stir slowly. Do not over beat.
Fold in the flour in small batches just until its mixed.
When the batter is well blended transfer it to a square baking pan lined with parchment paper or foil liner.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer or toothpick comes out crumbly and slightly moist.
Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
Once cool, lift the ends of the parchment paper or foil and transfer it to a plate.
Place the brownies in the refrigerator for 30 minutes so that it cools. Cut it into squares.



Tips:
Be careful not to over beat the mixture.
While lining the tin with parchment paper leave enough paper on the sides to be able to lift the brownies once cooled.
If you are using salted butter then omit the salt.
Don't be tempted to over bake it as brownies continue to cook in the trapped heat even after it is removed from the oven.
Brownies need to be refrigerated so that it is easier to cut it into clear lines/pieces.
