Chocolate Brownies

Cookies

Ingredients (still in the experiment phase)

 
  • 100 g dark chocolate*
  • 125 g butter
  • 150 g (250 ml) sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 5 ml vanilla essence
  • 100 g (150 ml) flour
  • 5 ml baking powder
  • 100 g chopped pecan nuts
  • 50-75 g choc chips - optional
 

Method

 
  1. Preheat oven to 170°C.
  2. Grease a 18 cm x 27 cm baking pan.
  3. Place the chocolate and butter in a large bowl, place over a pan of simmering water and allow to melt.
  4. Beat the eggs, vanilla essence and sugar in a large bowl until light and creamy.
  5. Add chocolate and butter and mix until well blended.
  6. Sift the flour and baking powder into a medium-sized bowl; add the chopped pecan nuts and the cocolate chips.
  7. Fold this micture into batter.
  8. Pour the batter into the greased baking pan and spread it out evenly. (Decorate with the pecan nut halves - optional.)
  9. Bake for 25-35 minutes. Before removing from the oven, insert a skewer into the centre of the cake. If it comes out with a little batter sticking to it, bake for another 10 minutes. If the skewer comes out clean, take it out of the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the pan.
  10. Cut into 15 squares (5cm x 5cm) and cool on a cooling rack.

* I use Nestle's Albany dark chocolate.

Makes 15 squares

 

You can substitute the chocolate with cocoa powder and butter - you may have to add some extra sugar.
For every 10 g of chocolate, use 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of butter.
