Double Chocolate Brownies

I’ve baked these brownies more than once. I’ve perfected them over a period of time and they couldn’t be more easier. The entire process of getting everything together took less than 5 minutes! Honest truth. Straight Face. From my Heart! It would be a crime if you finished reading this post and did not bake ’em. πŸ˜› Better yet, the ingredients are so readily available in any part of the world that you wouldn’t be able to come up with the excuse of non availability! πŸ˜€
Double Chocolate Brownies. As the name suggests, this brownie is twice ‘chocolatized’. Once, by adding cocoa powder and then by adding melted chocolate. If you’ve never eaten a brownie, let me take you through the experience of eating one. While hot, it is crisp and crumbly on the outside and soft yet dense inside. But here’s the best part. You chill it overnight; and what you have the next day is this incredibly dense, chocolaty, fudgy piece of brownie! What makes a Brownie, a brownie and not chocolate cake is the proportion of flour – fat – sugar. Brownies have relatively less flour and more chocolate as compared to chocolate cake; and are hence, much denser. But – a lot more tastier than chocolate cakes! πŸ˜€ Brownies are my new love!!! β™₯

1. Ovens vary. Please monitor your brownies closely after the 20th minute. I usually cover my cake or brownie tins with aluminium foil to prevent the top from burning.
2. Serve the brownies hot with vanilla ice cream; or with caramel sauce; or just sprinkle some sugar or cocoa powder on top and cut them into squares.
3. Variations include adding all kinds of nuts, more or less chocolate and so on. Since this was my 1st attempt, I opted for a simple brownie.

  1. Hello ,Can this be again dipped in a chocolate . How many days does it remain fresh ? Thank you for the recepie

    1. Sorry, I din’t get what you mean. You want to dip the brownie slices in chocolate again? I don’t see why not. But the chocolate will be too overpowering, in my opinion. It stays well for about a week.

  2. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. In any case I will be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!

  3. It’s been a while I bake some brownie at home. Your recipe looks super easy, and the result looks really tempting, too πŸ™‚

    this bake tin is the usual aluminium one which we get in market right. i was not sure of it thats why i didnt buy. i couldnt get the one where we can remove the bottom for easy removal

    once i try and am confident would tell u how it came out hehe

    1. Glad to see another newbie like me..:)) I keep having such lil lil silly sounding queries ALL the time.. Good luck with your baking experience..!

  5. The first two pics are incrediblee!! Looks so yummy..and u make it all sound sooo easy…Have to get hold of a cooking chocolate bar and try this..To melt the chocolate, can we just put it in a mw safe bowl and microwave for a min?
    And did u bake this in your black beauty with the same temp settings? Pls let me know..thanks!!

    1. Hi Priya,

      YES, you can microwave the chocolate. It would probably take 1-2 min. But stop after every 30 seconds & mix it so that the chocolate doesn’t burn.

      You can even skip the chocolate and make Chocolate Brownies.

      I baked it in my Onida Black Beauty only! πŸ™‚ The temp is much less than a recipe I read. But I guess its better to bake at lower temp for longer time than bake at a higher temp. Coz I tried that once & the top of my cake got burnt!
