Moist and Chewy Chocolate brownie!

Sharing with you guys my favorite brownie!


These brownies are really moist and chewy (the way I like mine to be)!

Add in some chopped walnuts to the extra crunch and textures.. I feel that either walnuts or pecan nuts goes well with brownies.. Absolutely not peanuts or green peas right?

Pack up in a box of 6, really to zooommm off for B!

Moist and Chewy Chocolate Brownies

Ingredients

125g butter
200g dark chocolate (use good quality ones)
3 eggs
1¾ cup caster sugar ( I use 50g caster, 50 brown sugar)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 ½ cups plain flour (sifted)
1/3 cup cocoa powder (sifted)
2 cups chopped walnuts

Methods
  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Brush a shallow 8 x 11 inch tin with melted butter/oil and line the base with baking paper, extending over the two long sides.
  3. Double boil butter and dark chocolate till melted, add in sugar and mix well. Remove the bowl of mixture and cool it slightly.
  4. Add in eggs, one at a time and mix thoroughly with each addition. Add in vanilla essence and mix well.
  5. Add in sifted flour, cocoa powder and nuts. Mix well.
  6. Pour mixture into the prepared pan, sprinkle some chocolate chips on top, and bake for 30 minutes, allow the brownie to cool in tin before cutting into pieces.
This is really a good recipe that's worth keeping! I really love chewy brownies, actually the love for such brownies starts when I bought a piece of Fudgy Chewy Gooey Brownie from The Brownie Factory at takashimaya basement (its a really small stall, keep your eyes open or you might just walk pass it w/o realising it's pressence!).

The brownie that I tried is their's no.1 best seller! Sticking to the bestseller ensures nothing goes wrong, and yes, the brownies are really chewy! Really nice! Selling at $3.10, it comes in a big piece, so I got only a pc and I shared it with B, and he too thinks that it's nice.

So if you guys likes chewy and moist types of brownies, do try this! You'll love it!

Hello!

Your brownies looks yummy. I would love to try baking it but I have a question.

Is there a mistake with the caster sugar measurement? 1 3/4 cup sugar seems to be alot compared to 50g caster sugar + 50g brown sugar.

Sorry i'm quite new to baking so just want to make sure.

Also what is the difference between using only caster sugar and using a mixture of brown and white?

Thanks alot!!

Cheers

Hi Ah peng,

The 1 3/4C of sugar is the measurement provided in the original recipe. But because My family don't like sweet stuffs, I greatly reduce the sugar content. And it suits just right..

However, if you've a sweet tooth, u might want to stick to 1 3/4C.

Have fun trying the recipe!


Cheerios!
