Here’s the thing – brownies are awesome. Majority of people (and everyone I know) loves them. This one is my go to, if I need quick snack, when I have unexpected quests or if someone around needs dessert like ASAP.
Btw, it won’t take 5 minutes to have it ready but 5 minutes is all you need to make the whole apartment smell like chocolate. Usually helps 🙂
Ingredients (square 9×9 inches pan)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 spoon of honey
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 small eggs
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder (ideally unsweetened)
- 1/3 cup of chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup flous
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
So there are two ways to make the brownie. You can make it more like a chocolate block, or more „light” one. I personally prefer the 2nd option but feel free to make if the way you like it more.
If you want lighter, „fluffier” brownie, start with separating egg whites and yolks. Use a mixer to make an egg whites foam then add sugar and mix it to be smooth. Then add egg yolks and continue mixing
If you want your brownie to be more compact skip the foam part and mix it all together.
Melt the butter (I recommend putting the bowl with butter in a pot with warm water, but you can also use a saucepan), add to eggs and sugar mix and stir together. Slowly add cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt while stirring.
Put a little bit of oil or batter on the pan. In the meantime preheat oven to 370 degrees F. Add chocolate chips to the mix and lightly stir with a spoon. Move the chocolate mix into the pan.
Bake for 30 minutes. When done, check with the toothpick if the cake is dry inside. You want the cake baked but not super dry, so it’s good if you see some grease on the toothpick.
You can melt a few chocolate chips and put it on top, but I personally prefer the plain one. There’s enough chocolate inside 🙂
Cut into squares, serve while still warm.
