Weekends usually mean having family over for lunch or in evening for snacks and some drinks. I have a dear brother-in-law staying here in Dubai for the last 6 years. He helped us settle in when me and husband were newbies around here and is our only close family out here.
He got married a few days back and I’m currently in New Delhi, visiting home for his wedding. He came over to discuss his last minute anxieties and we were happy to share his joy. To celebrate this occasion, I decided to bake some brownies, who doesn’t like a chocolate chip brownie served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. A late post but as they say it’s better late than never!
I’m posting this today on my Mum-in-law’s birthday.
Serves : 4
Prep Time : 10 minutes
Baking Time : 28-30 minutes
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/3 walnuts chopped coarsely + 2tsp to garnish
1/3 cup of canola oil
1 cup of milk
1 tsp of vinegar
1/2 tsp coffee powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
Handful of chocolate chips to garnish
A pinch of salt
Pre heat the oven at 180 degrees Celcius.
Sieve the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt.
Mix the milk at room temperature with coffee powder and vinegar and set aside
Mix the caster sugar to the dry ingredients.
Mix the oil and vanilla extract to the milk mixture.
Add the flour mixture and the milk mixture together and blend well.
Add chopped walnuts to this and fold the mixture gently.
Pour the batter to a well greased pound cake pan and top it with chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Cool the brownies completely before cutting them in neat squares.
The brownies will stay well up to 3 days.
