Classic Dark chocolate Brownies

Classic Dark chocolate Brownies
I was happy to get my second award from Yasmeen of health nut -"I'm a Chocoholic" It was so sweet of her to pass this award to me. Thanks again Yasmeen:) Being an ardent sweet lover chocolate always tops my list of sweets. I remember the first thing I baked after coming here was chocolate cake and was amazed to find out how easy was making cakes here, since then I regularly bought cakes n brownie mix and baked them.
Putting a scoop of vanilla ice cream on hot brownie and again topping it with chocolate sauce..is one of my favorite.
Just a week back I got this beautiful book on baking from the library, Williams- Sonoma's "Essentials of baking".Its an amazing book with beautiful illustrations, I coudn't stop drooling after gazing at those pictures, I might have turned the pages of this book-a hundred times and was in a BIG dilemma as what to bake first! as I found every recipe to be equally tempting.
But after I got the Chocoholic award I finally made up my mind to bake a chocolate brownie and this time from the original recipe and not from the ready to make mix.
It came out perfect, I enjoyed it with a scoop of vanilla on top of it.
here goes the recipe!
6 oz chopped unsweetened chocolate,
6 oz unsalted butter
3 large eggs
1 and 3/4 cup of sugar.
1/4 salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
5 oz all purpose flour
Melt chocolate and butter in the top of double boiler . Check out here for the exact procedure.
I melted the chocolate in microwave.
In a large bowl beat together eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla extract ,slowly transfer the chocolate mixture and mix well until blended . Add the flour (in small portions ) and mix slowly until its properly blended.
Pour the batter into the greased baking pan( grease the pan with butter).Bake it on 350 degrees for about 35 minutes .
Use a knife or fork to check if its properly done.
Cut into small squares and serve.


Brownies served with Chocolate! I dedicate this post of brownie to my sweet blogger friend- Yasmeen!

Maimoona, thx for visiting my blog. Your brownies looks yummy. It's my little sofi's favorite. I've always bought them from a cafe in my town called Secret Recipe. Now I think I'll try this one myself.

Oh you are so naughty!!! LOL.
Now that I have confiscated all the Halloween choc. and candies, I find myself really wanting your brownies! What do you know, my resistance just crashed like so many when they do not have their chocolate fix. It was also that square of chocolate on top of the brownie that did me in.
