This is the recipe I got from my friend's sister. It happened so that i friend had gone to visit his sister in Dallas and bought some home made brownie cakes from there. It was awesome and i really wanted to try it out. She was sweet enough to send me out the recipe. I increased the amount of chocolate specified by here. (i also added a spoon of unsweetened coco powder to the recipe). This made it chewier and rich... ummm..... iam mouth's watering as iam writing about it. ummmmm......so do try it and mail me ur comments....:) hey i even decorated the brownie...i made it for my hubby and just wanted to tell him how much i love him........:) so here goes the ingredients list......enjoy!
You will need :
8 tbsp (1/2 cup) - unsalted butter or margarine
4 oz - unsweetened chocolate (eg; Baker's, Ghiradelli)
2 tbsp - unsweetened cocoa powder (I used hershey's)
1 1/3 cups - white sugar
1 1/2 tsp - vanilla extract
1/4 tsp - salt
4 eggs (I used just the whites - dont like the smell of yolk. you may opt to use 2 eggs if putting whole)
3/4 cup - All purpose flour
2/3 - cup walnuts or almonds (roasted and chopped)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400°F and line an 8-inch square metal baking pan with foil. If you don't have an 8-inch pan, use the aluminium foil pans available in the market.
Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave using low settings. Stir until smooth. Now add the cocoa powder to it and mix well again. See that the syrup is smooth and not lumpy.
In another bowl put the egg whites and mix well till a bit frothy. Now add the sugar, Vanilla essence and salt. Mix well again.. it the sugar dissolves in. Now add the flour in it.. and stir until well combined.
Add walnuts / almonds and the chocolate chips and mix again. Scrape batter into prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes.
When brownies are done remove from oven and place immediately in the freezer. If you don't have space in your freezer, make an ice bath instead.
Allow to cool completely then remove pan and cut brownies into squares.
I decorated my brownie with vanilla frosting and m& m candies. You may serve the brownies as it is.
