Brownies

There are hundreds of brownie recipes in the blogosphere. I am sure you have your own way of doing it too. After a lot of permutations and combinations I have come up with my own recipe that works like a charm. My children love it and so do my DH and me. This brownie with a dollop of vanilla ice cream makes a perfect dessert.


 I hope you are doing well wherever you are.  Its time for me to come around and see what you have been up to now and drool over some of your recipes. Let me also say how glad we at Collaborative Curry are that you visit us and tell us about how much you like our recipes and photos. Hoping you will have fun treating yourself and your family to some delicious brownie I will sign off for today.




Ingredients:

Flour- 1 cup
Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt- a pinch
Granulated sugar- 1 1/3 cup
Butter- 1 cup
Eggs- 3
Pure vanilla extract- 11/2 tsp
Cocoa powder- 1/2 cup
Chocolate chips- 2/3 cup(optional)

Method:

1.Preheat the oven at 350 degree F.Sift the flour, salt and baking powder together.
2.Beat the butter and sugar until soft and smooth.
3.Add the eggs one by one and beat well to incorporate.
4.Beat in the vanilla extract and the cocoa powder
5.Fold into the flour mixture alternately with the chocolate chips, if you are adding any.
6.Transfer into the greased 9 inch cake pan and bake for 35-40 minutes or till a skewer inserted comes out clean.
7.Cool it for a few minutes and transfer onto a wire rack and cool completely.
8.Serve with vanilla ice cream or any ice cream of your choice.



Notes:

1.I have baked it with 1 more egg, and it will give a more cakey texture.
2.Adding chocolate chips will give a mosaic gooey texture and my family love it :-)
3.You could replace the chocolate chips with nuts of your choice if you want it to be nutty .
4.This recipe will give you brownies with a crumbly top, as you can see in the picture.
