EVERYDAY CHOCOLATE BROWNIE(FOOD REMAKE)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I know, I know, its not the time to post the recipe of Cakes and brownies... Its Diwali, I should post the recipe of some sweets and savories. But just thought of sharing a recipe with Demerara sugar and then I can share other recipes.
The brownies are very common in my house. Its almost once in 10 days , I bake the brownie. I got the recipe of Every day Chocolate Brownie from Aarthi which she had taken from one and only Nigella... I love her recipes, most of the times I have to read her recipes and be happy because I do not get many of the ingredients she has mentioned in my town :-(


Even Aarthi has got the fantastic space and the best part is all of her recipes are step by step in pictorial way which helps any one to remember and cook easily. Thanks a lot for that dear.
Coming to the recipe,
Usually I follow the regular recipe but today I thought of  giving a twist to it.. only because I wanted to use Demerara sugar instead of white or normal sugar. And I added the instant Bru Coffee powder at the end.

THE BEST SOFT AND MOIST BROWNIE I EVER MADE :-)
Ingredients:

All purpose flour - 2/3 cup
Demerara Sugar - 3/4 cup(coarse powdered)
Cocoa powder - 1/2 cup
Eggs -2 
Butter - 1/2 cup or little less
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt a pinch(skip if you are using salted butter, I always use salted Amul butter)
Vanilla essence - 2 tsp
any chocolate - 100 gm
(I like to use the cooking chocolate itself )
Instant coffee powder(Bru or Nescafe)- 1 tbsp


Method:

  • First preheat the oven to 190 degree c
  • Line a square tin with foil and brush it with butter on it. (Using foil is really a very good idea)
  • I use Microwave for making it, you can use the normal way(as shown in Aarthi's space)
  • Take a big M/W safe bowl.
  • Add butter and the sugar.
  • Keep in M/W on HIGH for a minute.
  • Remove, mix well and add cocoa powder. Keep in the oven for 10 seconds. 
  • Remove, add in the flour, baking soda and mix well to make it soft.
  • ALLOW IT TO COOL WHICH IS REALLY VERY IMPORTANT OTHERWISE IF YOU PUT EGGS WHEN HOT,  IT WILL BE SPOILED.
  • Now add the eggs, vanilla and mix well till you get very smooth consistency.
  • Fold in the chocolate pieces and mix well.
  • Now pour this mix into the ready tin.
  • Sprinkle the instant powder evenly on the mix.
  • Bake it in the oven for 20 minutes. 
  • Allow it to cool. Cut into desired size of squares. 
  • Enjoy it cold or warm or with ice cream or hot chocolate sauce.
Note :May be because I used the Demerara sugar, it was less sweet or may be it was because I used instant coffee powder. Whatever, the brownies were too good :-)
Wait for my next post with these brownies...
Brownie and Ice cream sandwich.. with hot choco sauce..


This is my first entry to my event which is a brain child of Jagruti



Keep Smiling,

AN EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT~KNOW YOUR NATURAL SWEETNESS~MAPLE SYRUP OR DEMERARA SUGAR

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Its more than a year that I hosted any event. Before, my blog had at least one event in a month and I always enjoyed participating in the events hosted by other blogging friends. Those events always encouraged me to try new recipes and I enjoyed those challenges.
Now a days, because of some personal hindrances, I am not able to post regularly any thing, forget participating or hosting any event.
Few months back, when Jagruti asked me whether I am interested in hosting her event I could not say no because I wanted to come back again and its always pleasure to host her event. She is a lady with so much enthusiasm.Check her blog and you will come to know, her site is hosting many events at a time with different and unique themes.
Coming to my theme for the event Announcing Series event~Know Your Natural Sweetness by Jagruti,
I have chosen two sweets!! yes!, Maple Syrup OR Demerara Sugar
To be honest, till today I have not tried Maple syrup in any recipes, so its new challenge for me. I have not tasted also how it tastes. Still I need to search for the Maple syrup in my town and not sure about getting it.
When I went through Wikipedia, I was surprised to see that maple syrup is extracted from maple tree. And its less in calorie!! That makes it more interesting.There are many things we don't know!! Click here to know more about maple syrup.
Demerara sugar is commonly used in baking substituting the white sugar for many reasons. Its known as natural brown sugar.
