After an early dinner at home a few days ago, I had a strong craving for some chocolate. Didn’t want to succumb to just some sweet chocolate bars, I raided the fridge and whipped up this Chocolate Brownie for dessert instead! I knew I only had some butter, chocolate bars, and eggs in the fridge, so there weren’t exactly a lot of options, except to bake these simple brownies. Everything was prepared in a single bowl, within about half an hour from prep, the brownies were sitting on the table for all to enjoy. Real easy, try it!
Easy Chocolate Brownies
100 g Unsalted Butter
100 g Bittersweet Chocolate
100 g Granulated Sugar
2 Large Eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
70 g All Purpose Flour, sifted
1/4 tsp pinch of Sea Salt
Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Butter 4 (3") ramekins.
In a large bowl, over a double boiler, melt the butter and chocolate over gently simmering hot water, stirring, just until the mixture has melted and remove from the heat.
Whisk in the sugar and then gradually add the eggs, and then add the vanilla, followed by the flour and sea salt, stirring only until each ingredient is incorporated.
Spoon the batter into the ramekins and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the tops of the brownie spring back when touched. Transfer the ramekins to racks to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
