It has to be chocolate...

Remember my urge to bake something chocolaty last night? well this is it.. i took out my newly bought food processor.. whisked my eggs and sugar and added it to my melted chocolate/butter mixture.. stirred in the dry ingredients.. baked it .. cooled it and went straight up to my bedroom.. didnt manage to fall sleep right away for the pain came back to me as soon as i was done cleaning up my kitchen.. i finally fell asleep around 3am.. hmmm wonder why is it that all of a sudden the pain seems to be so so much bearable when i am baking.. "shrugs"

Ty guys for all the well wishes.. didnt know there were lots out there that are just like me.. dentist haters hahaha.. anyway this morning i woke up feeling a lot better than yesterday..alhamdullilah.. we did our sunday marketing and went to my parents place right after that.. stayed there till after Isyak as both my sisters were there too.. always nice to see everyone and guess what we talked all day long?? hehehe our next holiday destination!

So ok lets get on with the recipe that i saw fm Bunda Nadhifa blog.. i have actually been craving for brownies since i was in jakarta.. i cud hv just bought it off fm the hotel cafe but unfortunately most of their chocolate cakes consist of alcohol .. even their chocolate and coffee macs consist of alcohol.. so what did i buy to settle my chocolate craving?? chocolate swiss roll.. sigh.. they were just so so.. even their macs were so so (we bought a box that consist of tutty fruity flavours)

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for pan - 120g
1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled) - 130g
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder - i used valrhona
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped - 225g - i used 53% and 70% cocao berry
1 1/4 cups sugar - 280g
3 large eggs

Preheat oven to 180C. Brush a 20x20cm baking pan with butter. Line bottom and two sides with a strip of parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on the two sides. Butter paper, and set pan aside. In a small bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

Place butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of gently simmering water. Heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes; remove bowl from pan. Add sugar; mix to combine. Add eggs, and mix to combine. Add flour mixture; mix just until moistened (do not overmix). Transfer batter to prepared pan; smooth top.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in pan for 30 minutes. Using paper overhang, lift brownies out of pan; transfer to a rack to cool completely (still on paper). On a cutting board, using a dampened serrated knife, cut into 16 squares.

I really like the rich chocolaty taste of these brownies.. it fudgy and not dry at all and the best part.. everyone loved it! Just dont forget: Brownies are all about Chocolate... so use good chocolate!

Original recipe: Martha Stewart

Hi Rima,

what is a food processor and it can be used to make cake batters?


Camelia said...

Salam Kenal Kak Rima, kalau ke Jakarta lagi, jangan lupa mampir ke Gramedia (di Grand Indonesia ada juga), saranku, buku "500 resep kue dan masakan : Koleksi kursus masak Ny. Liem", its like all Ny. Liem recipes in one book, so worth it... *hug*

Rima said...

Hi Sha

Rima said...

woahhhh nanti kalau anak knor dah jadi dentist sure knor tak akan takut lagi cos sure kena paksa pi jumpa dia heheh..

Rima said...

Rima said...

muahahha part baking tak ingat dunia.. lepas bake ajer sakit balik kahkahkah.. alhamdullilah today the whole day tak berdenyut..

Rima said...

Food processor can be used to whip cream cheese for cheesecake.. u can use it to process ur oreos for example to become crumbs.. i used it to process my almond powder into fine texture for my macs.. yesterday i used it to whip my eggs and sugar.. am just playing around with my new toy hehe

Rima said...

Salam kenal sis.. waduhhh lain kali akan ku berlari lari anak ke Gramedia to look for that book.. hehehe.. hmmm i think maybe next month we will be heading there again :o)
