It's been months since I've baked brownies ....
And I've dreamed that I'm eating fudgy brownies last night !
In reality , my baked brownies is a tad dry , more cakey than the fudgy ones I've been eating in my dreams ! lol
Maybe because I've just added half the sugar than what the recipe calls ?
For sure it's overcooked .....
A tad scorched at the edges as well tsk tsk !
According to recipe , cook for 50 to 60 minutes !
Ha ! I've cooked mine for about 40 minutes ugh !
Oh well ! It's still wonderfully chocolaty .....
It has coffee and white chocolate , my fave combo ! ^___^
There are cashews and pecans in there as well .....
Good thing I've added that 3 extras !
Worth baking again , in less than the allotted time , 30 to 35 minutes , I think .....
Mocha brownies , recipe adapted from Martha Stewart
My modification in red
8 tablespoon / 113 grams unsalted butter , cut into pieces ( 100 grams )
1 cup flour , spooned and leveled
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 teaspoons instant espresso ( 1 1/2 tablespoon )
8 oz semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate
1 1/4 cups sugar ( scant 3/4 cup raw sugar )
3 large eggs
100 grams white chocolate chips
75 grams cashews and pecans
* Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C . Grease a 9-inch square pan and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper , leaving a 2-inch overhang on 2 sides ( for easy removal ) , butter the parchment paper as well .
* In a small bowl , combine the flour , cocoa powder , baking powder and salt , whisk to combine ; set aside .
* Place chocolate and butter in a large bowl and set over a saucepan with barely simmering water , stirring occasionally until melted , about 2 to 3 minutes . Add sugar , mix to combine . Add in the eggs , mixing well . Add the flour mixture , mix until just moistened ( do not over mix ) add instant espresso . Transfer mixture to the prepared pan and bake until toothpick inserted comes out with a few moist crumbs attached , about 50 to 60 minutes ( BEWARE !!! ) . Cool in the pan for 30 minutes and transfer in the wire rack , let cool completely before cutting .
