When you think of rich, decadent, chocolaty, gooey goodness, one can just not stop thinking about fudgy brownies. In the past, every time I have tried to make brownies at home, they’ve always ended up being cakey. This time I was determined to make these drool-worthy fudgy brownies right. With a little bit of tweaking and judgement, I found success!
If you’re looking for brownies with a rich gooey center and a perfectly crinkly surface, you have to try out this unbelievably simple recipe. This recipe goes out to all those people who have at some point in time struggled to get the perfect consistency with fudgy brownies but have always ended up with a cakey texture. So here you go –
Butter – 150 gms
Melted milk chocolate – 200 gms
Granulated sugar – 1 cup
Eggs – 2
Vanilla Extract – 2 tsp
Salt – 1 pinch
Cocoa powder – 1 tbsp
Flour (Maida) – 2/3rd cup
Instant coffee powder – 1 tsp
Warm water – 2 tbsp
Preheat your oven at 170 degrees celsius.
1. In a bowl, take the butter and sugar and whisk until creamy.
2. Add the eggs to this mixture and combine well.
3. Add the melted chocolate and mix well.
4. Combine the coffee powder in warm water until it dissolves and add to this mixture.
4. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients, i.e the flour, salt and the cocoa powder.
5. Add the dry mixture into the wet mixture and whisk it all together.
Don’t beat the mixture too much as we don’t want it to get too airy.
6. Grease your cake tin and add parchment paper to it.
7. Add this mixture to the cake tin and put it in the oven for 30-40 mins.
8. Keep checking the brownies by inserting a toothpick into it. If the toothpick comes out with moist crumbs, you know it’s done. If it comes out with cakey batter, it needs to stay in longer.
9. Once done, let it cool a little in the oven.
10. After 10 mins, take it out of the oven, cut it into squares and serve warm.
1. You can use dark or semi sweet chocolate in this recipe as per your liking.
2. You can melt the chocolate either on low heat in the microwave or by using the classic double boiler method. I prefer the latter.
3. The coffee in this recipe is used just to bring out the richness of the chocolate. You can completely skip this step if you wish to.
4. Make sure you follow the proportions diligently to get the fudgy texture.
5. Skip the salt if you’re using salted butter.
6. You can add chocolate chips, walnuts, white chocolate shavings, salted caramel or anything that you’d like to as topping or in the dough for added texture.
7. Add a scoop of ice cream, chocolate sauce and chocolate chips to create a delicious brownie sundae.
