Brownies

Eversince New Year’s Eve, Ken and I have been baking with chocolate everyday. Perhaps this is even the reason why he is so fired up and won’t sleep till it’s very late. We recently baked brownies. I have baked brownies in the past and have experienced using the ready-mix, other’s recipes and from scratch some of which were really good. In fact, I can swear by the yumminess of the fudgy brownie at casaveneracion.com. However it is this recipe from Chef Teranishi that I would like to put on record in this blog.  We followed the recipe except for the chocolate. The recipe called for sweet chocolate but we only have milk chocolate in stock. Nevertheless, it was already sweet enough.

Ingredients:

  • 50 g unsalted butter
  • 150 g milk chocolate
  • 1 egg
  • 50 g granulated sugar
  • 50 g flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • salt
  • almond/nuts (optional)
  1. Mix and sift the dry ingredients except for the granulated sugar. Set aside.
  2. Melt the chocolate along with the butter.
  3. Beat the egg and mix in the sugar until the color turns lighter.
  4. Pour in the melted chocolate and mix.
  5. Put the dry ingredients into the mixture and mix just enough to wet all the ingredients. Add in the nuts.
  6. Bake at 180 ℃ for 15-20 minutes or when an inserted toothpick comes out clean.  Be careful not to over-bake.

The end product was chewy and moist and was much more delicious after one day and despite the dry weather,  it was still moist and crusty yet chewy. Oh the ways we describe a brownie. I think we will be using these proportions from now on until a better one comes along!
