Rich Chocolate Brownie

There is nothing better than baking something that smells heavenly and not eat it, right? Well the answer is no but you knew that already. Last week my brother’s fiance and I baked this awesome brownie for my brother’s PdD dissertation jury. I couldn’t eat it because of my diet but it was a very sweet end to a very stressful 7 years and way too much information on Augmented Reality on my part. Congrats to my brother, Tolga!! That, now, makes me the only one in my family who does not have a PhD. Oh, well.

Ingredients:

  • 260 gr unsweetened chocolate
  • 125 gr butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoon flour
  • 1 pinch salt

Melt the chocolate and the butter in a bowl over boiling water. Meanwhile prepare your pan by buttering the pan and lining it with non-stick parchmentΒ paper. A trick I learned from Martha Stewart is to put small binder clips to hold the paper in place.

Take off the heat and wait for it to cool down. Add the sugar and whisk. Continue whisking by adding the eggs one by one. Add the vanilla. Stop whisking, add salt and the flour and mix with a spatula. Pour the mixture in the pan, sake the pan so that it’s homogeneous.

Take out the clips and put the pan in the preheated oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 180Β°C. When you take it out of the oven wait for the brownie to cool down, then cut up into pieces. And as an end note, we found out that, the next day they are even better than eating hot from the oven.

Overall it was a fun cooking experience that left satisfied tummies of the jury and a very happy owner of a PhD. Enjoy.

This is the texture you want, runny but with a slight thickness.

The binder clippers are awesome to hold the paper until you put the mixture inside.

Shake the pan lightly so that the mixture goes to every corner.
