One of the first things that I baked really well, when I jumped on the baking wagon like all the home cooks and food bloggers was a Chocolate Brownie. Little did I realise that these brown beauties are easy to make, comforting as a food, simple in their looks yet so attractive and you can easily impress anyone with this recipe for sure. Now there’s a little twist to this recipe – I have used Blackstrap molasses as a substitute for sugar. Blackstrap molasses is a by product of sugarcane’s refining process. Unlike the normal sugar that we use in our day to day lives. Blackstrap has nutritional values, as it contains vital vitamins and minerals, such as Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin B6 and more.

Yield / Serves
115gms - Unsalted Butter
150gms - Dark Compound Chocolate, chopped
80gms - Milk Chocolate, chopped
3 - Eggs
1 tbsp - Blackstrap Mollasses / 120g Brown Sugar
80g - Flour
1 tsp- Baking powder
75g - Roasted walnut, chopped
1/8tsp - Salt
1 cap - Vanilla essence
Whipped cream for topping (Optional)
Parchment paper for lining the baking tin
Melt the dark & milk chocolate along with butter over a double boiler or on High in a microwave for 1 min only. Let the chocolate mixture cool.
In a large vessel, whisk together the eggs and vanilla essence, until the entire mixture turns fluffy
Next add in the Blackstrap molasses and whisk for a minute on low speed. Remember, compound/cooking chocolate already has sugar in it so adjust the taste/quantity accordindly
Fold in the melted chocolate into the egg mixture
Finally fold in the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt by using the cut & fold method
Line parchment paper on the baking tin, grease it with some butter. Ive used some batter to seal the edges of the tray.
Pre heat the oven to 180C for 15mins. Sprinkle walnuts
Let the batter bake for 20-25min or until a tooth pick inserted in the centre, comes out clean
Meanwhile, whip some fresh cream until soft peaks arise and let it set for 15-20min in a refrigerator, prior to using it on the baked dish
Once the brownies are cool, you may cut them into desired sizes and serve with a topping of your choice.
I served mine with whipped cream :)
