Brownie is a great dessert eaten with various combinations like fresh cream, ice creams, fresh fruit toppings or fruit preserves and syrups.
First time bakers can also bake a great brownie very easily, as unlike cakes this does not require a very thorough beating of the dough for fluffiness. A brownie is to be just mixed and lightly beaten and baked. You just cannot go wrong and all will praise you on the sticky choco brownie.
You can get innovative with the decorations and topping as per your artistic desire by using either left over chocolates & chips or using various types of dessert topping easily available in all shopping centers.
- Cream the butter and add sugar. Add whole eggs (one at a time) and beat well.
- Now add all other ingredients and beat well.
- Add nuts and mix with a wooden spoon/ spatula.
- Pour the batter in a greased and lined tin.
- Place extra nuts on top for decoration and garnishing.
- Bake for 30 to 45 minutes at 180 C.
- While serving, cut into thick chunky squares and pour sugar syrup over this to give it that special moist texture that brownies are famous for. You could also use left over syrups from “gulab jamun” or “rasagulla” etc. You could also use fruit preserves like strawberry syrups.
- I enjoy to serve this with toppings of fresh strawberries and vanilla icecream & hot chocolate sauce.
Brownies make a great combination with Strawberry d’lite.
The batter for brownie should be firm & thick. In case the batter is too thick you can add just a little milk to help in mixing the batter.
