Triple Chocolate Brownies

I’m not much a brownie eater, actually never eaten a fudgy brownie before. It was always cakey brownie. So, this is my first fudgy brownie.

The fudgy look of the brownie caught my attention and with specks of white and brown all over, hidden and peeking at me. I just got to make this someday… But I need choc lovers to help me eat up the brownies.
Then came the chance, I needed to visit an aunt and uncle and I wanted to bring some bakes for them. And that weekend, her daughter Esther was back with baby Tristan. Esther told me she loves brownies and chocolate cakes… AH-Ha!!!! The chance to bake brownies has finally arrived!!!


I adapted the recipe from Anna Olsen. I used almost less of everything by cut down the choc to one pack size of 250gm. I was lazy to break another pack for the other 50gm. Then I cut down 1/3 sugar and butter. I slightly increased the choc chips cos here, the smallest packs that suppliers will sell is 100gm, so why leave the 10gm behind if I were to follow the recipe to go at 90gm. And I also had some chopped roasted walnuts leftover from a cake, and so in it went too.

250gm dark chocolate (I used dark compound chocolate)
100gm butter
100gm sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs
60gm all purpose flour
100gm chocolate chips (There are no milk chocolate chips here that are light brown in colour)
100gm white chocolate chips
Small handful of walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven at 140/160C. Line an 8 inch shallow square pan with overlapping sides.
2. Place dark chocolate and butter into a mixing bowl. Place mixing bowl over another bowl of hot water and let the butter and chocolate melt, stirring gently.
3. Remove mixing bowl from hot water and mix in sugar and vanilla extract.
4. Put in eggs and mix.
5. Sift in flour and mix.
6. Put in 2/3 of both choc chips and nuts and mix.
7. Pour batter into pan and sprinkle balance of nuts and choc chips.
8. Bake for 35- 40 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.

  9. Busygran,
    Hope you like this :)




    Swee San,
    I knew the post is coming soon, becos the recipe was within my view in the scheduled list. If it's still far off, I won't notice cos it will be far far up in the list, hahaha!!!





    aiwei,
    yup :)





    Sonia,
    It did come out clean for me, but it wasn't dry.
    I think it's due to the recipe. Some recipes are for cakey brownies, some for fudgy. This recipe has very little flour, so, it came out ok for me. Try and compare the ingredients with ur other recipes. It might be different.




    Joanne,
    Want some more ah?
    I'm dying to try more brownie recipes, but I need eaters!!




    Esther,
    Glad you liked it :)
    Hope to see more tryouts from you.

  15. Min,
    Don't just keep, try it



    Yummy Koh,
    Haha, sinning once a while is fine




    Joanne,
    Hahaha, lately me no mood to bake and am very tired all the time.
    I hope to bake something for u guys to try during Xmas.




    HomeKreation,
    My girls love this, but I don't allow them too much chocolates at one time. They can eat non stop but the consequence later is very pitiful.
    Lyanne can have bloody stool, cos too heaty.
    Some more, I never like my bakes to keep for more than 2 days, and rich stuff like these are best to be shared.





    WyYv,
    Hehe, make some then :)

  16. Hey wendy,

    I must say I am quite a brownie fan. Love my brownies to be fudgy rather than cakey. Most recipes can yield fudgy brownies by slightly underbaking them to get that gooey texture.

    These brownies look good. I noticed that there isn't a lot of sugar used unlike most other brownie recipes.

  17. Haven't tried cooking brownies.....my test out one day!

  18. I'm not a fan of brownie and like you, I need eaters as my kids aint fans too. But I like to bake :P Argh!!

    And if I really have to choose, it's also fudgy over cakey brownies.

  22. Bakertan,
    I cut down 1/3 of the sugar. But don't dare to go any further, if not it might turn dry.




    Pete,
    I hope to see the one day. It's just a one bowl thing, not difficult at all.




    Blessed Homemaker,
    Kids are hard to please at times hoh???




    Barbara,
    Thanks




    kk,
    I don't know why my white choc bits turned yellowish. My oven could be too hot.




    Kitchen Corner,
    Hope you'll make it soon.

  23. Recently I baked a chocolate banana chiffon cake and none of them ate it, not even a bite :( I might have fed them too much goodies, pampered kids.

  24. Hi Wendy,

    I love your blog. It is a source of inspirations for me.

    I tried your recipe yesterday. It was awesome! However, it was rather sweet for our taste. I suspected I could have bought the wrong type of cooking chocolate as the chocolate was already sweet! What else can I do with this sweet chocolate? Or can I tweak the recipe to make it less sweet (ie reduce sugar/less chocolate chips) while using this chocolate? I have around 250gm left. :(

    Appreciate your comments! Thanks!

  25. Cindy,
    I used Beryl's dark chocolate for this.
    If you used less sugar, the brownie could turn drier that's why I didn't dare to reduce tooo much from the original source, although I have already reduced about 30%.
    You can skip the white choc chips, as those are usually quite sweet.

  26. wendy,

    this is so mouth-watering!! one of comments said that it might b too sweet.. prolly we have similar taste bud cause i don't like choco that are too sweet i prefer more bitter. how many % is yr dark choco ? mayb i can use higher % than yrs to overcme the sweetness ? hmm...

  27. Jane,
    I don't know how much % as it's not stated, but it's a dark chocolate from Beryls.
    Like I said above, skip the white chocolate as those are really kind of sweet. Add 2-4 tbsp of cocoa powder if you would like to add more bitterness, but try not to reduce too much of the sugar as I have already reduced 30% from Anna Olson

  28. It taste good and the best recipe I try so far. I reduce the sugar to 80g. My kids love it. Thanks for the sharing.
