I am not one of those people to enjoy Nutella straight from the jar(Yes I know!)but I love to mix it up in my baked goodies.This cake of course tops the list and these rolls come second.Combining it in a brownie would just make it to the top of my list and it did.Gooey brownies with a swirl of Nutella can never go wrong.These do not score well in the looks department but taste awesome.I contemplated a while before posting these as I wasn't very happy with the pictures,but a good recipe has to be shared,right;)?
Only change I would suggest is to use fine granular sugar.The recipe says it's ok if the batter is a bit granular but I felt some of the sugar crystals didn't melt evenly and it was a task getting these buggers out of the pan even though I lined the pan with foil.Maybe one single pulse in your mixer would break the sugar crystals a little,which would work out perfect while mixing.
Fudgy Nutella Brownies
Recipe source - Averie Cooks
Makes 18-24 thinner and small brownies in a 9 by 13 inch pan or 12 generous brownies in a 9 by 9 inch pan
Semi sweet chocolate -6 oz/170 gms
Butter - 150 gms
Instant coffee powder - 1 tbsp
Granulated sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup
Eggs - 3
Vanilla - 1 1/2 tsp
All purpose flour/maida - 1 cup
Nutella - 1/2 to 2/3 cup
Preheat oven to 170C.Grease and line a 9 by 9 inch square pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Microwave chocolate and butter in a big bowl for 1 minute on high.The butter would melt completely and the chocolate would still hold its shape.Stir well using a wooden spoon and the chocolate would also melt in the heat.Stir in the coffee powder.
Stir in both sugars,mix well.Add eggs one by one and then the vanilla.
The batter would be a but granular but it's okay.Stir in the flour.Mix only till combined and no specks of flour remain.Pour into the prepared pan.
Add Nutella to the top of the mixture and either leave it as it is or do a zig zag pattern on top.
Bake for 25-28 minutes or until edges pull away from the pan and the top and center is just set.Keep these gooey and do not overbake,these will firm up as they cool.
Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.
