It’s good to go to the kitchen during a lunch break and eat something tasty and sweet, while drinking strong coffee. And this desire is completely natural, since during intense mental activity the brain requires glucose. The best option when the dessert is made from environmentally friendly products. Such, for example, can be a chocolate brownie cooked from tasty Cadbury bars.
A bit of history. Socialite Bertha Palmer ordered cakes from the Palmer House Hotel confectioner that would be suitable for visitors to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. The dessert turned out to be small, similar to a sweet cake, but at the same time very convenient to eat out of boxes. It was after this event that the cake gained its popularity. The original brownie recipe – by the way, the Palmer House Hotel cooks it according to it – contains walnuts and apricot glaze.
Its main feature is a super-chocolate dessert with a dense and moist texture. At the same time, it has a pleasant thin crispy crust. It is this brownie option that we will consider in this article. A distinctive feature of the classic recipe is that it does not include baking powder and soda. You can diversify brownies by adding chopped hazelnuts, nutmeg, walnuts or peanuts. It is desirable that before that they were fried.
The brownie recipe is pretty simple. There’s nothing tricky or super complex here that you can’t handle. Let’s get started!
- black chocolate Cadbury 180 g;
- butter 180 g;
- eggs 3 pcs.;
- flour 75 g;
- sugar 250 g;
- salt 1/4 tsp.
When preparing products for brownies, do not skimp on chocolate. Foremost, it determines the taste of the whole dessert. It is desirable that it be at least 70% cocoa content. No need to buy a bar with cocoa powder, due to which the percentage can be increased. The fact is that when making a cake, chocolate must be fluid, and this can only be provided by a natural product, like Cadbury.
From the above quantities of ingredients, approximately 800 grams of pie is obtained. This is 8-10 servings.
Melt butter and Cadbury chocolate. To do this, break the chocolate into pieces and put it together with the butter in a container. We will melt them in a water bath. Every 10-15 seconds, you need to stir the consistency so that it does not curl into lumps and overheat the chocolate itself. If the mass turned out to be too hot, then it must be cooled.
We drive eggs into the container. Add sugar and salt there. Stir until sugar and salt are completely dissolved. Add the chocolate-butter mixture to the egg mass and mix. Sift flour and mix until smooth. Be sure to cover the baking dish with parchment and pour the dough into it. Sprinkle with nuts and put in the oven preheated to 175 ° C for 30-35 minutes
To make brownies with a moist center, it is important! do not skip the time and pull them out of the oven. Therefore, towards the end of baking, start checking the readiness with a toothpick. You need to catch the moment when the middle has ceased to be liquid. At the same time, a little wet dough still remains on the toothpick. Then, immediately remove the form from the oven, the brownies are ready. Do not overdo it, if the toothpick comes out dry, then you won’t be able to get a wet middle.
It remains only to wish you bon appétit! The delicious brownie from Cadbury chocolate is ready!
