This is an awesome brownie recipe ,gooey inside and a treat to your taste buds.Makes you close your
eyes the minute you bite into this nutty, crunchy ,gooey brownie.
This time I thought of sprinkling the nuts at the bottom (like i used to make sweets and halwas with the
nuts under the sweet )and it was a success .
Chocolate recipes turn out good only if good quality chocolate is used.
So do try this recipe and post in your comments and suggestions.
100 gm butter
75 gm sugar (half brown +half white)
1 heaped cup flour sifted with 1/2 tsp baking powder
50-75 gm chocolate
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp yoghurt/curd
100-150 gm hazelnuts (slightly crushed )
Melt the chocolate, butter in a Bain-marie (double boiler) till butter is partially melted.
Now add the cocoa powder ,and remove from fire.
Whilst the mixture is hot ,mix well till well corporated.
Whisk the eggs,sugar and essence together till sugar dissolves .(In another bowl).
Now add the chocolate mixture gradually into the egg mixture .Add curd and mix well.
Fold in the flour little by little and mix.
Line a tray with parchment paper and grease the paper with butter.
Spread the hazelnuts at the bottom,and pour over the batter.
Bake in a preheated 180C oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
Cut into pieces after it is cooled (minimum 2 hours)
You could serve it without any adornment as it has a richness of its own.
If preferred you could serve with cream/ice cream/drizzle of chocolate.
