Brownies III – Bloomin’ brilliant browniesJanuary 31, 2008
Bloomin’ Brilliant Brownies for Bloomin’ Brilliant Beauty!! *grin* Yup~ so who is this beauty? None other than… *drum roll* Jamie!! Another January babe!! ❤ all the January babies!! Okie, pure biasness *cover mouth* Been cracking my lil head on what to make for her, made cookies for her the 1st time I met her, so X-ing cookies out! Need to be sometime different! Chocolate cake? All the cream and stuffs, I doubt it will last till my greedy master meets her! =/ He will most prolly make up a reason like, “the cake is going out of shape!” and start gobbling it up. 😄
Need something that will last and able to store up to a few days!! I’m sure she will be dining out for a couple of days in a row. Something she can munch on and not too heavy. After some hunting, my virtual best fren (Mr. Google) pops up this brownies recipe by Jamie Oliver! *giggle* Jamie for Jamie! 😀 What is this!! Signs for above!! okie dokie then~ i choose u, Bloomin’ brilliant brownies! *throw pokemon ball* Simple things can be great too yea? 😄 Made some Fudge to go along with the brownies as well, Just for Jamie! More Js. *grin* Made some for Master San to share with his colleagues as well~ 😄 San, i’m afraid u will chomp out my special gift for her! therefore…. prevention is better than cure! *giggle*
Jamie: 100% Dark chocolate! from brownies to fudge! less sugar = less fattening, plus it’s your b.day everything u eat = 0 calories! Sorry babe, Ice-cream not inclusive~ =X Was so close to making you so homemade ice-cream, but melted ice-cream won’t taste yummy! 😛
Recipe taken from Jamie Oliver’s Little Book Of Big Treats.
250g unsalted butter (reduced to 150g)
200g dark chocolate
50g chopped walnuts
80g cocoa powder, sifted
65g plain flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
360g caster sugar (Reduced to 160g)
- Preheat oven to 180 Degrees C. Grease Baking pan.
- Melt the butter and dark chocolate over a double boiler and mix until smooth.
- Add chopped walnuts and stir together.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar, and then add this to the chocolate mixture.
- Beat in the eggs and mix in until you have a silky consistency.
- Pour your brownie mixture into the baking tray, bake for around 25 minutes.
You don’t want to overcook them so, unlike cakes, you don’t want a skewer to come out all clean. The brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle. Allow to cool in the tray, then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and cut into chunky squares.
Smells great! From the looks and chocolate-y scent i sense that it’ll definitely be a lot richer in taste compared to the 1st brownies recipe. But lacks the crispy crust of the 2nd brownies. 3 brownies recipes so far… more to come! Didn’t get to taste it as it’s a gift! It seems like, i am sending out food without ever trying them myself nowadays =/ brave yea! *fingers crossed* Let’s wait for comments from Jamie, San and his colleagues. 😄
