Dark Fudgy Brownies | Easy Baking Recipes

Wishing every one of you a very Happy new Year!

So,the Mayan calendar didn't work after all and we are well into 2013 before even we blinked our eye.Time seems to have flown past without our knowledge,I mean isn't it only few days back we wished each other a Happy New Year,apparently,that was a year back!
Dark Fudgy Brownies
No New year is complete without a sweet start.Ok,the resolutions on one side and a sweet platter of Brownies on one.I have no doubt which one I am going to choose.Resolutions are so passé:)

I have lost count of how many go-to brownie recipes I have these days.For a while I did stick to baking only these but now I am open to any recipe which claims to be rich,dark and fudgy.A while back,when Ria was in town,she gave us a small goodie bag which had a slice of these delicious brownies.I loved the crusty top and soft and gooey insides and fell in love with brownies all over again.

Dark Fudgy Brownies
I had started out thinking I'm gonna bake those,but owing to the quantity of butter(especially after the xmas and New year binge!)stuck to this one.This one is no fat-free recipe from any angle,but you know;))

Dark Fudgy Brownies
Recipe source - Dessert First


Dark Chocolate - 150 gms
Milk Chocolate - 90 gms
Butter - 75 gms
Instant Coffee powder - 1 tsp
Eggs - 2
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Dark cocoa powder - 3 tbsp
Salt - a pinch
Flour - 1/3 cup
Chocolate chunks - 1/3 cup
Walnuts - 1/4 cup,chopped


Preheat oven to 180C.Grease and line an 8' square baking tin.
Dark Fudgy Brownies-step1 
In a micro-proof bowl,melt both the chocolates for 1 minute on full power(alternately,you can follow the double boil method).
Mix in the butter and microwave again for 1 minute on full power.
Mix in the coffee powder and beat well till you get a smooth glossy mixture.If any chocolate chunks remain,microwave again at 30 second intervals.
Keep aside to cool.
Dark Fudgy Brownies-step2 
In another bowl,beat together eggs,vanilla and sugar till thick and light in colour.
Dark Fudgy Brownies-step3 
Mix in the cocoa powder,salt and flour to combine.
Add the melted and cooled chocolate-butter mixture and stir till you get a smooth,thick batter.
Stir in the chopped chocolate and walnuts and pour into the prepared baking tin.
Dark Fudgy Brownies-step4 
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.Do not over bake.
Let it cool on a wire rack or even better if you can refrigerate it for 30 minutes to an hour and cut it to get neat,even slices.
Just before you serve,microwave the brownies for 15 seconds to get a gooey,rich brownie which has 'sin' written all over it:)

Dark Fudgy Brownies
Any mention of Brownie reminds me of my darling niece who flips on the same and thinks "Dipachi'(as she calls me) makes the best brownies in the world.Only kids can think like that,I feel:).No visit to Bangalore is complete without a batch of brownies baked for the darling candy in my life.She celebrates her birthday today and I wish her all the happiness in the world with a huge batch of brownies going her way:).

Happy Birthday Meghana!

  9. Hi Divya,
    Lovd the brownie pics. Had a doubt,cn we make these on stovetop?

    1. I am afraid I haven't tried baking brownies on stove top,sorry!

  10. Hi divya

    i hv IFB's MW. Can u plz tell me tht can i use this tin in convection mode at 180°? I m damn confused abbt it :-(

    1. Yes you can!When you use the convection mode in the Microwave,it is completely safe to use metal tins since no microwave rays pass through during the convection mode.Go right ahead!

  11. Hi, by dark chocolate and milk chocolate do you mean the chocolate compound ?
