Meet The Brownies

I don't make cakes. I eat  too much of them, and they get in my way later on, when I'm trying to fit in a dress or shirt (stupid white shirts).
But I decided to make some moredesserts, well, because I wanted to. Ha!

And I'm on the chocolate wagon, it's something irresistible, and I don't understand why.
Anyway, I belive in weird stuff, and I can swear on this brownie, which recipe is simple, luscious and you really have to remind yourself you're just going to have two pieces, not half  the tray. Although that really isn't so hard. Cause, you know, brownies, and this specific brownie came out really thin, so 2 pieces was actually like half a normal one ;)

It's nice to make it for a party, or friends or family coming over, or take to work. Make a glaze topping for it, like melt salty caramels ond pour it all over...
Or just melt half a chocolate bar and pour over. Or sift dark cocoa over.. Or just confectioners sugar...
Still delicous...

Type of dish: dessert, cake
Cost: cheap
Difficulty: easy
Time: 45 min
Preparation time: 15 min
Baking time: 30 min
Oven temp: 180C

You'll need:
a small saucepan, a whisk, a bowl,  a spoon, a cup, a medium baking tray ( the larger tray you use, the thinner the cake is), tin foil,

  • 6 tbsp butter
  •  3/4 cup sugar
  • 200 gr dark chocolate bars, broken to pieces
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 eggs room temp 

Preheat your oven, and line your baking tray with foil. In the saucepan, on medium heat, melt the butter and chocolate and stir to prevent burning. Add a bit of the sugar, spoon by spoon so it melts in.
Crack the eggs in a bowl and lightly beat them so they mix a bit. When you have the butter mix melted and the sugar in all incorporated, turn off the heat, add the salt, vanilla and mix. Then, add half of the eggs, and stir  until the mixture turns really glossy, then add the other part and go on and add the flour all at once, and whisk the mixture vigoriously for 1 min. I hate this part, but don't skip it. After 1 min, pour the mixture in the baking tray and pop in the oven for 30 min. No more, no less is needed.
Remove the cake, and let it cool. If you want your brownies to be extra moist, put a slive of bread on the top while it's cooling down. The bread goes rock hard and the cake retains it's moisture.
After that, cut your brownies in squares, and top with whatever you want.
They are seriously soooo goood...
