Happy New Year! After all the holiday festivities are over I thought I’d start with some light baking, nothing very demanding and exhausting so I decided to go to back to basics and a little more – Fudge Brownies. Brownies are tough bars to crack as I’ve mentioned earlier. Everyone has a different version and definition to it so you never know who you will please with them.
I’ve made the regular brownies more than a billion times and they are nice and chewy and have this great moistness to them. I decided it was time to explore the fudgy brownies, a bit tricky on the baking time but worth a try. I use this recipe if i want to make a base for something and it works very well. You can also have it by itself and it’s just as nice.
1/2 C butter (don’t use oil for this, you will lose out on the fudginess
1/2 C cocoa
2 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 C flour
1/2 C chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 170 C
- Melt butter and cocoa in a small pan, once melted remove from heat and add in sugar and vanilla
- Add eggs one at a time, beating after every addition
- Finally add the flour and walnuts and stir
- Spread in an 8″ square tin and bake for 30 mins until it feels dry on the top
