Almond Brownies

Unlike cakes, I like making brownies. What else can it be - no need to cream sugar and butter neither use the cake mixer. I for once don't like washing up the cake mixer. Thoroughly washed with hot water to clean up the oily-sugary residue as well to avoid ants. Making brownies on the other hand is about melting butter and sugar over low heat followed by gently folding in the other ingredients. While baking, brownies tend to crack but I think its quite normal. Brownies are a pleasure to the taste buds - for tea time, for occasions and you can also a piece or two for breakfast too.

10 tbsp softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
4 eggs
1/2 cup crushed almonds without skin 

Over low heat, melt butter and sugar.  
Remove from heat and let it cool down a bit. 
Sift flour, cocoa and baking soda.
Mix into the butter-sugar mixture bit by bit. 
Make sure there's no lumps.
Lightly whisk eggs and gently stir in the mixture
Add vanilla and fold in almond. 
Pour mixture in a greased baking pan.
Bake on preheated oven at 170C for 25 mins or until it’s done.

  2. No, you're not bragging, you're just being yourself and it's very refreshing to hear real stories about real people and the story behind the recipes, BTW, love the brownies recipe, just looking at the visuals already make me salivate, can't wait to eat something chocolatey...

  3. i'm not a baker either. wish i was! it's one of those things that's better if you have a real passion for it (and if you live at a lower altitude than me!) :-)

  4. Hard to go wrong with brownies as the recipes are usually so forgiving ... These look great :-)

  6. hi nava, sometimes we like to tell our stories to someone- stories from the heart. Here, i want to confess to you that i have never made brownies in my entire life.
    Hardly a baker too, cos i am not much into sweet stuff, but i would love to be so damn good in bread making as well pies... never really really serious in doing it yet . ha ha my dreams only.
    you did well, got your brownies done perfect. bravo!

  7. Oh god they look and sound delicious! I love baking but I do find that it's pretty time-consuming and I'm not that great at it :P However, the results are always rewarding! Yummy~!

  8. I'm now in Brownie heaven.... nice chewy consistency with just the right amount of moisture (without being too greasy and heavy like some brownies are)and delicious chocolatey taste and not too sweet, just the right flavour that I like, looks like this Brownie is really up my alley..erm... if only we can buy Brownies like this 'off the rack'.
