This is the first try at baking Cocoa Brownies from scratch for the first time.
This project costs about 10 bucks and takes 20-30 minutes to prepare and 40 minutes to bake.
I guess this recipe is kinda ‘cheating’ cos it didnt call for chocolate!
It’s more of a cocoa powder brownie, though it’s good too.
I added in chocolate on my own though.
Dark chocolate’s awesome!
Recipe from Oven Haven.
Cocoa Brownie Recipe (7 inch round pan)
1/2 cup butter, melted (119g)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa (119g)
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
50g dark chocolate
Butter/Oil for greasing pan
Place the butter in a microwavable bowl and heat for 5 seconds til soft and ‘melted’.
The cocoa powder.
In the new mixing bowl from IKEA! (:
Mix the melted butter and cocoa till it’s well blended.
Add the sugar and mix well.
Add the 2 eggs and mix well.
Mix mix mix!
Stir in the flour, vanilla essence and salt.
What I used.
The chocolate buttons from Phoon Huat.
Grease the pan! I used margarine.
Chop the chocolate buttons. I cut them into somewhat ‘halves’.
Mix em’ in.
Preheat the oven at 150 degree Celsius. Bake for 5 minutes before increasing the temperature to 180 degree Celsius. Bake for a total of 30-40 minutes or till’ a chopstick comes out clean when poked into the centre of the brownie.
This brownie came out real ‘black’ but it tasted okay.
Guess I’d reduce the amount of butter used the next time round cos’ the brownie was really greasy.
Next venture, a brownie with more chocolate, real chocolate!
