A brownie lies somewhere in between a cake and a soft cookie

Instructions

  1. Coarsely chop the dark chocolate into squares on a cutting board. Place it in a saucepan, and add butter to it. Heat, and stir over a low flame, until all the chocolate and butter is melted into a smooth and even paste. Remove from heat, and let it cool. Add sugar to this mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Add the eggs, one at a time. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon, until all the eggs are mixed into the chocolate mixture. Beat in the vanilla with a wooden spoon.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and baking powder. Add the flour mixture, all at once into the chocolate mix. Stir the brownie batter, until the flour is moistened. If desired, stir in chocolate pieces or chopped and toasted nuts. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F. Grease a baking pan, and line it with a foil. Spread the brownie batter in it, and bake for 30 minutes.

Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Ingredients:

  • 125 gms packed salted butter
  • 100 gms dark chocolate
  • 70 gms plain flour
  • 30 gms cocoa powder
  • 50 gms milk chocolate
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200 gms soft light brown sugar

Pour the mixture in it, and then scatter over the remaining cherries. Use either canned glazed cherries or cook the fresh cherries in sugar syrup before adding to the brownie mix, to neutralize the bitter tart taste.
