Chewy Chocolate Brownies

There are 3 kinds of brownies – Cakey, Fudgy & Chewy. Chewy being the least of my favorite. But who can say no Chocolate huh? 😀 Especially a brownie as dense and choclaty as this one?

The chewiness seems to come from a couple of different factors: more all-purpose flour, whose proteins provide “bite” to the brownies. Secondly, the fact that the batter isn’t as runny as other brownie / cake batters.

Let’s get started. Its really simple. Mix the dry and wet together!

Here’s what you’re gonna need –

Preheat your oven to 160C / 320 F

Mix the oil, water & vanilla

Mix the dry – flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder & salt

Sift in the dry into the wet with a sieve.

Mix the dry mix into the wet to form a thick batter

Line a baking (8inch) pan with parchment paper. Pour the batter into the pan and flatten out as much as possible

Bake @ 160C for 20-25 minutes or until the brownies are fully cooked through.

Let it cool for 5 minutes in the pan. Remove & let it cool completely. Slice and serve.
