Baking is my first love & Chocolate is my muse! And I simply wonder why I haven’t shared any of my Brownie recipes here on my blog. Probably because I thought nobody would need it. Boy, I was so wrong!
Not that the world needs another cake recipe but I want to share it nonetheless so that you can try this chocolate brownie easy recipe in your Convection Microwave Oven at home.
So, I had to whip up a big batch of buttery, fudgy, slightly gooey at the centre & choco chips loaded brownies for my blog and documented it exactly how I make chocolate brownies from scratch.
Brownies are something which are sort of fuss-free, once you understand the science behind it. No need to get scared, it ain’t rocket science either.
Just a couple of simple tricks and your brownies will always turn out the best, might even better than those boxed Brownie pre-mixes. No kidding.
If you are like me who likes it to be rich, loaded with chocolatey flavour and fudgy with a little bit of gooey in the centre, then this recipe is going to be perfect for you.
How to make Fudgy Chocolate Brownies – Ingredients list
- All-purpose Flour
- Cocoa Powder
- Granulated Sugar
- Brown Sugar, an alternate would be normal granulated sugar
- Baking Powder
- Vanilla Extract
Here, butter and some good quality cocoa powder are absolutely non-negotiable. Also, I have both granulated sugar and brown sugar in this recipe because I love the texture that the brown sugar gives after baking. It is slightly chewy. But, if you don’t have any at your end, don’t worry. Normal sugar works just as fine!
If there’s one thing that I am dead against of, then that has to be those boxed pre-mixed for cakes and brownies. If only I could emphasize it more that, you already have all the ingredients sitting in your pantry and ready for a bake.
Plus you have all the options to make these brownies even more delicious with your choice of toppings. Here, I will help you with some of them to start with:
- Walnuts – classic and never fails
- Chocolate Chips – like how I have used here
- Salt flakes
- Caramel sauce
- Ice cream
- Whipped cream
- Dried berries
- Peanut Butter
- Toffee Sauce
You can choose any one or a combo of these for your brownies to make them even more delicious. In this recipe for chocolate brownie cake, I have used a mix of dark, milk and white chocolate chips as toppings and then served these with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
