No matter what people say, there is always room for brownies. One of my favourite things to bake, I feel like there should always be brownies in my fridge. They are so easy to make that I often wonder why I don’t make them all the time. Recently, for a friend’s birthday I made brownies instead of cake. After the “brownie cutting” she arranged them in a rough stack and they looked ‘Oh! So lovely’.

Preparation: 15 mins | Baking Time: 20 mins | Makes: 24 pieces

200 gm unsalted butter
200 gm milk chocolate ( or dark chocolate if you prefer)
3 eggs at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 cup castor sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

*Preheat oven to 190ºC. Line the baking pan (I use a pan of 13 X 9 X 2.5 inches dimensions) with parchment paper or foil both on sides and base.

*In a heavy bottom saucepan, add the butter and chocolate. Melt over low-medium heat. Keep stirring in between. When it’s melted, remove from heat and let cool for about 5 mins.

*In a bowl beat together eggs, vanilla and sugar. Beat the egg mixture into the melted chocolate mix. Follow with chopped walnuts, flour and salt. I simply use my handheld cake beater right in the saucepan to combine everything smoothly.

*Pour the batter into the lined pan.

*Bake for about 20 mins. Remove onto a cooling rack. The brownies continue to cook as they cool down so don’t think you removed them too early as additional time in the oven will them dry.

Food is never just food. I believe it’s story telling, it’s conversation. It brings people together and it speaks a universal language! I love to play around in my kitchen. The thrill of being able to create something new and sharing it with others is what fuels my passion for cooking. The fact that dear husband is a foodie and an honest critique helps!
