Irresistible Brownies

Irresistible Brownies

My weekend has started with a sweet note.

Just finished baking a whole tray of these absolutely irresistible brownies. I couldn’t wait for them to even cool, they were absolutely yummilicious….

When I am baker shared cookies and cups recipe of the brownies, couldn’t resist the temptation to make them. After a week of just drooling over the picture, today was the day as I had nothing much to do and was craving a sweet. So voila…..



All purpose flour/ maida                                                                  –              2 cups

Butter (melted)                                                                               –              1 cup

Sugar                                                                                            –              1 ½ cups (original 2 cups)

Cocoa powder                                                                                –              ½ cup

Eggs                                                                                             –              4 nos

Vanilla extract                                                                                –              1 ½ tsps


For the frosting:

Butter                                                                                              –              ¼ cup

Cocoa powder                                                                                  –              ¼ cup

Milk                                                                                                 –              ¼ cup

Powdered sugar                                                                                –              1 ½ cups (original 2 1/2 cups)



Pre-heat the oven to 170 deg centigrade.

Grease and line a 9 x 13 inch tray with wax paper. Keep ready.

Using an electric beater whisk the melted butter and sugar.

Add the eggs one at a time, making sure to incorporate the egg completely before adding the next.

Beat well till the mixture is pale yellow.

Add the cocoa powder and beat again till completely smooth.

Pour in the vanilla essence and beat well.

Now, slowly add the flour and mix only till combined. Do not over mix after adding the flour.

Spread the mixture on the prepared tray and bake for 20-22 minutes.

While the brownies are baking, we can make the frosting.


Beat the butter, cocoa powder, milk and powdered sugar together till they are well combined. There should be lumps in the mixture. Keep aside.

Test the brownies to see if they are done. The skewer inserted will not come out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Spread the frosting on the brownie when it is warm. This helps the frosting to spread better.

Allow it to cool completely before cutting.

(I became too..restless and cut before it set completely, you can see the cracks)

Serve and ENJOY!!!



I reduced the quantity of sugar as I don’t like them too sweet. They were still yummy and fudgy.

Twix Brownies

Twix Brownies

I have got this serious addiction to brownies.

Came across these Twix brownies from another site and wanted to try them out. The caramel inside the Twix all melted with the chocolate and the fudgy soft centre of the brownies…O man!!! They were just awesome…

The brownies by themselves aren’t very sweet but when you take a bite with the centre, it explodes in the mouth covering the entire palate with the sweet sticky caramel. Mine went the extra distance with a topping of caramel sauce and vanilla ice-cream.

Just can’t have enough of them…



Unsweetened chocolate (chopped)                                                           –              4 oz

Unsalted butter (cubed)                                                                           –              ¾ cup

Sugar                                                                                                    –              1 ¼ cup

Eggs                                                                                                     –              3 nos

All purpose flour/ maida                                                                           –              1 cup

Vanilla extract                                                                                        –              1 tsp

Twix bars/ 5 star bars(chopped)                                                                –              12 bars

Salt a pinch



Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade. Line a Square brownie tray or a square cake tin 8” x 8” with foil and keep ready.

Melt the butter and chocolate together in a microwave or use a double boiler.

When all the butter has melted, (this should take approx 3-4 minutes) stir till all the chocolate has also melted.

Whisk in the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and the pinch of salt.

Gradually add the flour a tablespoon at a time and mix till the flour has just combined. Do not overmix.

Spread half the batter into the prepared baking dish. Spread the chopped Twix chocolates evenly in a single layer. Pour the remaining batter over the chopped chocolate.


Bake this for 20-25 minutes in the oven.

The brownie is a fudgy one and will be gooey in the centre. So when you insert a toothpick, it will be slightly wet inside.

Remove from the oven and cool completely before cutting.

Cut into squares and serve with ice-cream or caramel sauce.




The brownies will stay in an air-tight container for upto two days.

When serving the brownies the next day, warm them in a microwave for 20-30 seconds.
