Didn’t mean to sound political, but loved the quote to describe how I felt about this dessert… Who would not love something like this? Not that I have much of a sweet tooth, but those rare moments when craving for some dessert – it has to be something like this one. Or the flour less chocolate cake… Or the chocolate muffins with cherries… You get the idea, right?
The photo would’t really show much – it’s not one of those desserts that look good. I tried it the same day, then the next and a few days later. And although it tasted heavenly right out of the oven, a few days later it was the best!
* 275 g dark chocolate
* 110 g butter
* 160 g flour
* 365 g brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 6 eggs
I took this recipe from some of the trendiest cooks in Lithuania for the moment – “Virtuvės Mitų Griovėjai” (I guess the closest translation would be the Destroyers of the Kitchen Myths :)). The first time I tried it based on the original recipe, but then I started improvising on the amount of ingredients – the final result never failed!
Boil a pot of water, put a bowl on top for melting the chocolate together with the butter. In a separate bowl sift the flour, sugar and the baking powder.
Once the chocolate and butter is melted, remove the bowl off top of the pot. Using a whisk pour in the beaten eggs, sift in the “lose” ingredients and mix everything together.
In the meantime roast some nuts in the oven. Once they turn a bit golden, I take them about (takes ~ 7 – 10 minutes) and roll them between the palms so the skin comes off. Mix the nuts into the batter and pour the batter into a prepared pan – lined with parchment paper.
Heat the oven to 160 degrees and bake for 25-30 minutes. At times it’s difficult to say whether it’s done or not yet. It comes out very moist. To my taste, the brownies are best the next day – they kind of settle and you don’t need to eat them with a spoon :). Et voila!
