Indulgent chocolate brownies with walnuts

Indulgent chocolate brownies with walnuts, a lovely treat any time of the day

Hard to believe that we will be saying goodbye to 2015 in only 2 days. This year has gone way too quickly, and so had the previous one and the one before. Sometimes l wish l were a child again so l don’t have the notion of time, no rush, no worries… Looking back though, this year has been a good one and l hope 2016 will be as good.

If you are getting ready for the New Year party and are planning to bake some yummy stuff, I have the perfect dessert: indulgent chocolate brownies with walnuts. They will definitely be everybody’s favourite: rich, chocolatey, crunchy, all in all, sheer goodness. The original recipe called for 250 g sugar, but it seemed too much to me, so I cut down to 100 g and they are perfect. So always trust your instincts, even in the kitchen 🙂

These chocolate brownies go amazingly well with a cup of hot chocolate. Yum!

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  • Break the chocolate into small pieces and cut the butter into cubes, then add them to a heat-proof bowl and melt them over a pan of simmering water.
  • Allow the mixture to cool.
  • In a large bowl, add the eggs and sugar and mix well until you get a creamy texture.
  • Pour over the chocolate mixture and fold in.
  • Sift in the flour and cocoa powder.
  • Chop the walnuts and add them to the other ingredients.
  • Mix well.
  • Grease and flour a square cake tin, then pour in the mixture and bake for 30 minutes.
  • To test if it is ready, insert a skewer in the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean, then the cake is ready.
  • Cool completely in the tin then cut into squares or the desired shape.
  • Dust with icing sugar.

Enjoy! 🙂
