Easy Chocolate Brownies


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!

Ingredients

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

Method

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.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
