Hello everyone! Today I decided to make some homemade brownies and let me tell you: they were INSANELY delicious! I had some friends to come over and they loved them too! So if you are a brownie-lover just like me (because who is not? Haha!), you simply have to try out this recipe!
You will need:
- 200 g dark chocolate
- 250 g butter
- 3 eggs
- 200 g sugar (you can use brown sugar mixed with white sugar so the brownies would get a delicious caramel-ish taste to them)
- 1/2 cup nuts (you can use nuts of your choice, but I used a mix of hazelnuts, walnuts and almonds) (optional)
- 150 g all-purpose flour
- 2 tbspns unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tspn baking powder
- a pinch of salt (it helps to reveal the taste of dark chocolate)
Take a pot, fill it with water and let it boil. Place a big bowl on top of the pot. Add all of the chocolate into the bowl as well as 250 grams of butter. Let it melt. Take a bowl, mix 3 eggs with sugar just for a little. In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, a pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. Using a whisk, mix the egg mixture and slowly pour in melted chocolate. Pour in the flour mixture and combine everything well.
If you decided to use nuts, you just have to roast them a little in a hot pan. Then you will be able to remove some of the peels that are bitter. Chop the nuts and add them into the batter.
Line your baking tin with parchment paper. Then, you can pour in the batter. Preheat the oven up to 175ºC (347ºF) and bake for about 25 minutes. When your brownie is baked (it should be soft and a bit wet) you should let it sit until it is completely cool.
Cut it into medium-sized pieces and serve it with fresh strawberries or ice cream. Enjoy!
