My first attempt at baking brownies and i was pleased!The result was some heavenly chocolatey brownies.Serve them with cream or ice cream and enjoy :)

Please excuse me for the pictures i was ever so impatient to eat it that the brownies were crumbling away, once they cooled they were fabulous.

Recipe source :Joy of baking ( i have made my changes, the original recipe says "low fat" i have cut down the butter to do so you can add butter instead of oil)

You need

Granulated sugar 2/3 cup
Butter/vegetable oil 1/3 cup
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Egg 1 large
Flour 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon
Cocoa powder 1/3 cup + Melted chocolate 2 tablespoons
Baking powder 1tsp
Baking soda 1/4 tsp
Cream 1/4 cup (Amul cream)
  • Preheat oven to 180C and grease, flour the cake tin and set aside.
  • Beat the egg in a bowl, add oil and whisk well.Add the cream and vanilla essence and mix well.
  • Add oil and beat well until all is mixed well.
  • Sieve the flour,cocoa and baking agents into a bowl.Add the sugar and combine the dry ingredients well before adding the wet mixture into this slowly and mixing alternatively.
  • Once all the dry mixture is well combined with the wet, transfer to the greased cake tin or bowl you would be baking it.
  • Bake at 180C for 45 mins or until done.I had to keep checking it because the sides were done and the centre was wobbly.If the skewer comes out clean from the centre you can turn off the oven and cool the brownies.
  • Be sure to cut the brownies only when its completely cool else it will crumble (like mine , it was also a bit sticky but completely soft once cooled.)

  • Stores well for about 4-5 days refrigerated in an air tight container.

  • Enjoy delicious brownies with a glass of milk.
Note:I loved the texture, color, taste, etc but I have a query about why it sunk in the center??If anyone knows why please let me know. But that just didn't do anything to alter the heavenly taste of those brownies.
