It’s raining all day today and I can’t think of anything but a cup of coffee and something sweet treat to eat. So I decided to make (again) a fudge brownie. Yes, I believe this time I made a chewy, chocolatey, and fudge brownie. The first and second time was more on a cakey one and I don’t like my brownie that way.
- 100 grams chocolate (I use Goya easy melt dark chocolate)
- 57 grams salted butter or half of a stick of salted butter
- 9 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp. cocoa
- 7 tbsp. all purpose flour
- Vanilla (optional)
- 80 grams chocolate
- 29 grams salted butter of 1/4 of a stick of salted butter
- 4 tbsp. confectioner’s powdered sugar
- For the fudge brownie, melt chocolate and butter over a double boiler. Stir constantly. Once melted, set aside to cool down.
- Once the chocolate and butter mixture cool down, add granulated sugar and whisk constantly.
- Whisk in the eggs one at a time until smooth.
- Fold in the cocoa and all purpose flour until there are no lumps.
- Add 4 drops of vanilla extract and mix again.
- Pour the batter in a greased pan. You may tap the pan to remove bubbles. Cover with aluminum foil.
- Since this is a no-bake recipe, I cooked the brownies on a steamer. Steam for about 30-45 minutes.
- You’ll know the brownies are done when a toothpick inserted came out clean.
- Once done, let the brownies cool completely.
- To make the chocolate frosting, melt the chocolate and butter and cool down then add sifted confectioner’s powdered sugar, whisking continuously until the consistency looks like a frosting already.
- Spread the frosting on top of the brownies evenly.
- Let the brownies cool in the fridge for a couple of hours.
There! You can now cut yourself a slice of fudge brownie. And for me, this is so far the best brownie I’ve ever made after two fails. Haha! Enjoy!
