'Supernatural' Brownies | Nick's 'Supernatural' Brownies

Just like me pappu is a sucker for brownies. He loves his share of "bonnies" anytime anyday. So whenever I get a chance to bake, I bake brownies WITH and FOR him. Last week when my parents went back to California, I thought of baking some brownies and chocolate chip cookies for my brother. And when I said it was "bonnies" pappu started dancing around. He knew that he will be given a big chunk of his favorite bar as soon as it was out of the oven. But when he saw the rest getting packed, he became sad.

And so I baked it again yesterday for our sweet celebration. One thing that went wrong was that I baked it a tad bit more and the brownie became a bit dry and crumbly. The flavor was spot on and it was dense as any brownie should be but that moistness was no longer there. As a brownie lover, I would always perfer an underbaked brownie than an overbaked one. That being said, my advice would be to always test your brownie 2-3 mins before the said time and act accordingly. I will be trying this recipe soon to get that 'supernatural' effect and will update the pictures when I do so.

Fudgy and moist, these brownies are made from a recipe that appears in Chocolate: From Simple Cookies to Extravagant Showstoppers by Nick Malgieri (HarperCollins, 1998).

~*What U Need*~

Unsalted butter - 1/2 stick
Semi sweet chocolate - 4 oz
Eggs - 2, room temperature
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Light brown sugar - 1/2 cup, packed
Vanilla extract -1 tsp
Salt - 1/8 tsp
Unbleached all purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Chopped pecans - 1/4 cup

How I Made it:
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 8x8 inch baking pan and line with parchment paper allowing some to overhang on the sides. Set aside. Melt butter and chocolate in a double boiler. Set aside. Whisk together eggs in a large bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt and whisk to combine.

Stir in chocolate mixture, fold in flour and nuts. Pour batter into prepared pan; spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 20-25 mins. Let cool on a rack. Cut and serve.

Serve with milk or like a sundae.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
