Chocolate Brownie

Its amazing how we transition from busy to busier and then to even more so. I didn't realize at all how soon two weeks have passed and I didn't get a chance to think about my next post. Now when I am trying to write something, I felt its been such long time. 

May be this is a very womanly thing but after spending my whole day in office, I feel relieved when I enter my home, especially in my kitchen. My kitchen feels like a room full of treasures. You select what gems you want from the treasure chest and then make your own jewellery. 

200 gm of dark chocolate (I use 60% or more)
200 gm of unsalted butter
150 gm sugar
100 gm plain flour
100 gm mixed nuts
3 eggs


Beat the eggs and the sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Break the chocolate into small pieces and then melt with butter in a Bain-marie until it forms a thick pool of chocolate and no lumps remaining. Add the flour in to the egg and sugar mixture and whisk it well using an electronic whisker. Now add the chocolate in to the mix and using a wooden spoon give the mixture a good stir. Last but not the least add the mixed nuts to the mixture and bake it the the oven for 20 minutes. 

Cool it in a rack for some time then cut them in to squares and serve with tea or coffee. Enjoy.
