Last Christmas I made Sizzling brownie. The recipe of brownie was very easy and eggless. I wanted to try walnut brownie recipe and I selected my friend Purva's method. She had prepared the brownie for her husband's birthday. I think his birthday is somewhere in December…. So wish a very happy birthday from all of us. Wow it turned out very well. Purva, Thanks a lot dear for sharing this with us:)
1 Cup Maida (Plain Flour / Self Raising Flour)
3/4 Cup Butter
3/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 Tablespoons of Coffee
1 Tablespoon Hot Water
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Large Eggs
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts (Basically it is 3/4 cup Chopped Walnuts and almond)
1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips
Combine Butter and Coco powder in a bowl and placed the bowl in a Microwave only for 1 Minute. Once the butter is melted remove it from the microwave and mix the butter with Cocoa well and see to it there are no lumps. It should be a smooth batter. In a bowl break the eggs and add sugar to it. Use a hand blender and whisk the eggs and sugar together with the blender. Whisk the eggs till the mixture becomes double in size. Combine coffee and hot water and added to the butter and cocoa mixture. Now combine the Egg and sugar mixture with the butter and Cocoa mixture. Add Vanilla extract and mix both the mixture properly. Keep this mixture aside. Now in a big deep bowl, sieve Maida, baking powder and salt together. Now add the dark chocolate combined mixture in the flour. Fold the flour with chocolate mixture and while folding the mixture add chopped walnuts and chocolate chips in between. Remember to fold the mixture in one direction. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease the Square baking tray or place a grease proof paper or Butter paper. Pour the batter in the tray. Bake the mixture for about 25 - 30 Minutes or when you pierce the tip of the knife and it comes out clean or there are cracks on the top of the mixture. Serve brownie with vanilla ice cream… a perfect dessert for Christmas eve.
