Brownies (Αμερικάνικα μπισκόττα σοκολάτας)

I really do love anything baked with chocolate. Brownies are a chocolate-lover's delight. The best testers for recipes are children - mine loved these! The recipe came from myhomecooking. Pre-heat the oven to 325F/180C degrees.
You need:
6 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa
1/4 Cup Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Flour
2 Eggs
8x8 Baking Pan

In a microwavable dish, melt the butter, then stir in the cocoa. Now, mix the remaining ingredients into the butter mixture. Flour the baking pan by covering the dish with fat or butter, then put a few tablespoons of flour, or cocoa, in the dish and shake it until the sides and bottom are covered. This will keep the brownies from sticking to the dish. Pour the brownie batter into the dish. Put the brownies into the oven for 35-40 minutes. Poke your brownies with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, your brownies are done. Now, take them out of the oven and let them cool until slightly warm. You are ready to cut and serve.

I followed the recipe as shown on the website, omitting the nuts; we don't have pecan nuts in Greece, but walnuts or cornflakes could be an equally good alternative. I used a larger oven dish, so my brownies were a little slimmer, more like a fat biscuit rather than a slice, but the top was crispy and the centre was crunchy. The recipe is easy to follow, and makes a good lunchbox filler. The brownies tasted so good that I'm not going to bother to search for a better recipe.

  1. I made this one during the weekend and added about 1 cup brazil nuts (after they went through the blender). I was afraid that this addition will dry a little too much the composition, but I loved the results. Simple and tasty recipe! And the kids helped make it.
