Almond Brownies

Goodness gracious, been really a while since I baked. In fact, I myself can't exactly remember the time lapse. Never mind, that's okay. We shall just move on to making this Almond Brownies which by far is so much easier compared to making cakes (Lemongrass Cake, Pandan Cheesecake, Thin Apple Pie, Lemon Cream Pie &, Honeydew Melon Cake). Generally too, I like to keep sweet treats to simplest possible (Coconut Grapefruit Jelly, Fried Apple Fritters, Sago Gula Melaka, Pandan Poached Pears, Watermelon Milk Sorbet, Coconut Jelly With Mangoes, Pineapple Bread Pudding, Cherry Vanilla Rice PuddingSaffron & Cinnamon Poached Pears), anyone for the matter can make this brownies. I mean what's the big deal about stirring all the ingredients together and then baking? Right? Of course. Now, brownies tend to crack while baking, I think its quite normal. So, don't press the panic button. Bake and then enjoy this Almond Brownies for tea time, for special occasions or you can also have a piece or two for breakfast. Its absolutely okay.

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 the mixture 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 too. 
Pour mixture in a greased baking pan.
Bake on preheated oven at 170C for 25 mins or until it’s done.

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'.
