I made these brownies in 40 minutes (preparing and mixing) for my grandma's birthday (last month). They were a bit cake like and not super moist, but still a hit in the family. I kind of over baked it a bit and I also tweaked the recipe a bit, so it wasn't the original recipe's fault. It is very hard to resist eating these desserts.
Note: I didn't take any pictures b/c of the camera problem and the only reason I'm able to provide pictures in my last post was because I borrowed my uncle's camera and/or posted up a post that was long overdue. I was planning to bake it again to take pictures, but I barely bake recipes twice as I want to try out many new things.
One Bowl Brownies
Adapted from The Pink Peppercorn who adapted it from Bev Shaffer
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cup sugar (I didn't want to put 2 cups, a rough estimate would be 1 tbsp of sugar each piece!)
3/4 cup butter, softened (180 grams, original recipe called for 226 grams)
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla (I just estimated it, too lazy to measure)
1/2 cup walnuts (I just poked it in the batter because the batter was like cookie dough)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (Same as the walnuts, I didn't use the full amount though)
I used a 8 by 12 or so inch pan
Mix all the ingredients together. Yes, just mix.
What I did was to whisk the dry ingredients together to evenly distribute everything. Then I added the 2 eggs, butter and vanilla and used an electric mixer to beat everything together. It will be crumbly and dry, don't worry, keep on mixing. Mix until it starts coming together. Then, press the dough into your pan that was previously greased and add your toppings.
Easy peasy brownies. Very unique because I never made brownies that weren't in the form of a batter. The advantage of this recipe is that you don't need to melt chocolate.
