Wishing all of you a very Happy new year!!
New beginnings sound so much better with a sweet.The moment I sat down to write this post,the first thing which came to my mind was that,Nags posted the same recipe in the beginning of 2010 and I am positive she too started the post with a similar sentence.Isn't it true Nags,my memory is sharp that way,hehe.
The name of the Brownies,is what intrigued me.I don't usually need an excuse to bake a brownie.I am weak-kneed the moment someone offers me a brownie,unable to resist it even with all the will-power in the world.I collect recipes of Chocolate Cakes,Brownies and Nankhatais like there's no tomorrow.So it was no wonder I wanted to try these too.I finally got around trying this last month since I got my own copy of this book,yay!My first recipe from the ever-popular BFMHTY.
I made these again for my darling li'l niece,one of the two candies in my life.She is celebrating her birthday today and she gives me competition when it comes to relishing these fabulous tasting goodie.Of course,the difference being,I eat it with the word 'guilt' written somewhere in the back of my mind,whereas she relishes it with absolute pleasure!!
One of the best brownies I've baked so far,this one is perfect-has a beautiful crust and is so fudgy and gooey[thanks to the chopped chocolate added into it]and with the crunch of walnuts in every bite-absolute pleasure!!

Recipe source - Baking From My Home to Yours
All purpose Flour - 1/4 cup
Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp[optional,but so good]
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Butter - 100gms /1/2 cup / 1 stick
Cocoa powder - 1/2 cup
Instant coffee powder - 2 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Eggs - 2
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Chopped walnuts - 1 cup
Chopped Chocolate - 4oz /approximately 2/3 cup
Turn the brownies out onto a rack, peel away the paper and invert onto a cutting board. Cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
[My brownies look a little on the thinner side coz I baked them in a 9' tin as opposed to an 8' one-doesn't affect the taste in anyway though!!].
Enjoy and here's wishing you a superb New year once again!!
