Steps In Making Chocolate Brownies

  1. Preheat the oven to 160C and grease your baking tin (8×8) with butter and line the bottom with a parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a bowl sieve in the cocoa powder and refined flour and keep it aside.
  3. In another glass bowl add roughly chopped chocolate and butter and microwave it in the oven for 1 minute or until the chocolate melts. Please remove the bowl and stir after every 20 seconds to prevent the chocolate from burning. Once done set it aside and bring it to room temperature.
  4. In another large bowl add eggs, castor sugar and brown sugar and with the help of a whisk or hand beater, beat them till light and fluffy (around 7-8 minutes)
  5. Now add canola oil and vanilla essence and mix.
  6. Now add the melted chocolate mixture in it and mix until incorporated.
  7. Fold in the dry ingredients (flour and coco powder) into the wet ingredients just until combined. Don’t over mix else the brownies will turn hard.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and smooth the top. Tap the tin couple of times to remove any air bubbles.
  9. Bake for around 30 minutes or when toothpick inserted comes out with moist crumbs. You will notice the edges will just begin to apart and the centre will just be set. DO NOT over bake the brownies, else they will turn hard.
  10. Let it cool down to room temperature before removing it from the pan and cutting it into pieces, as the brownie will take some time to firm and set.
  11. Store them in the refrigerator for upto 2 weeks or freeze them in an airtight container till 3 months.

Recipe Notes For Chocolate Brownies

  • Always beat the egg and sugar mixture for 7-8 minutes for nice flaky brownie top.
  • You can add some chocolate chips to the brownie batter before baking for extra fudge like texture.
  • Never overbake the brownies else they will turn hard, because once they are out of the oven the baking process still continues for sometime. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out with some crumbs attached.
