Chocolate Walnut Brownie | Christmas Special Recipes

Yet another recipe from Gateway's Pastry Chef Joe Francis. I prefer to have milk chocolate rather than dark chocolate. Jany, on the other hand, has always been a dark chocolate addict. So I always wanted to try a brownie for him. When Joe gave the recipe, I was super excited and gave it a try. The chocolate brownie is very rich and can be served as a dessert with a dollop of vanilla icecream. These brownies are very soft, moist, dense and chocolaty. The walnuts add extra zing to the brownies. So this is for all the chocoholics out there. Here, we go for the recipe.
Eggs - 2
Icing Sugar - 100 gms
Dark Chocolate(Melted) - 200 gms
Butter - 100 gms
Walnut - 25 grams
Maida - 50 gms
Vanilla - few drops

1. Melt the butter and Chocolate together in double boiler method. Whip the eggs and icing sugar together till the colour changes to pale yellow and fluffy.
2. Add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture.
3. Finally fold the maida and walnuts gently. Don't overmix. Grease a pan with butter and dust it with maida.
4. Transfer the batter to the butter paper lined baking tray. Preheat the oven to 200 degree C and bake for 20 to 25 mins @180 degree.
Enjoy the yummy and delicious Chocolate brownie. Kids will love it for sure.
Points to remember:
  • Adding walnuts is optional. But the crunchy walnuts give perfect texture for the brownie.
  • Don't over bake the brownies, over baking results in hard brownies.
  • Next time I am planning to reduce the dark chocolate to 150 grams, since it was very sweet for our taste buds.
Warm Regards,
