Are you craving for something sweet? Do you want to lighten up your taste buds with something delightful? Well you can most certainly do that and in no time either. Brownies are the solution to your needs. This most fascinating treat is what anyone would crave for and is an easy to make thing that will not take much of your time at all. Try the simple method given below and treat yourself to an awesome brownie delight.
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 10 tablespoons butter (unsalted)
- ½ cup flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
The first step is to pre heat the oven to 375 Degree Fahrenheit. Prepare the tray in which you would bake the brownies by oiling it so that you may be able to take out the brownie after baking. Now melt the butter, sugar and cocoa all together so that a mixture is made. Apply medium heat to the mixture so that all three ingredients mix evenly. Keep stirring until all the cocoa and sugar dissolves in the butter and turn of the heat. Allow the mixture to cool down.
Beat the eggs and add vanilla to them. Keep beating until the mixture becomes smooth and shiny. Add this to the original mixture and beat till you form one even mixture. Now add the flour to the brownie mixture and stir using a wooden spoon, till all the white spots disappear. Keep beating for a min or two to ensure homogenization and to obtain finer results.
Now that the mixture is done and homogenized, it is time to pour it into the baking tray. Gently pour the contents and then even the mixture out to form a single layer that is even from all ends. Use the back of the spoon to even the contents and keep doing so till a fine line is obtained.
Now place the tray into the baking oven for 40 minutes. Keep a track of the time for over baking may ruin the hard work. At the 40 min mark, use a toothpick to check the inside of the brownies; if it comes out clean, it means the brownies are cooked, otherwise place the tray back into the oven for a little longer. Keep repeating the task till you obtain a perfect result.
When done, remove the brownies from the baking oven and let the contents cool. Once they are cooled down, use a knife to cut small pieces and add decorative items to present. Your brownies are ready for service.
Ensure that you do not disturb the baking process by constantly removing the tray and checking inside. Be patient and let it cook till the prescribed time. Failure to do so may ruin your efforts and the brownies may not turn out so good.
