Easy Brownies



This is very sinful. It's not sin in a sense of -sin-. But, this is full of chocolate. Very chocolatey. Hmmm....the chocoholic in me.

My kids just love this brownies. They lick the saucepan. (By the way, this is a very easy recipe, can complete preparing it in about 10minutes. And bake it for another 25minutes.). Everything is made inside a saucepan.

I found the recipe in allrecipes.com, but I've made some alterations here and there.( the initial recipe is tooo sweet).

It's not the kind of melt-in the-mouth brownies,nor a cakey brownies. Well, may be something in between. Anyway, if you are really into the melt-in-mouth brownies, then this is not it.(may be I post the recipe for that some time later).
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Frosting:
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2cup confectioners' sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Grease and flour an 7 inch square pan.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 25.
  4. To Make Frosting: Combine 3 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons cocoa, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 cup confectioners' sugar in another saucepan. Melt. Frost brownies while they are still warm.
p/s u can add come nuts.

and I always prefer cakes/brownies using cooking chocolate rather than cocoa powder...
