Super Chocolate Brownies


This weekend Bülent and I were craving some naughty food, so I pulled out all the stops!  I usually can’t eat chocolate desserts here due to cross contamination with hazelnuts.  However, if I make it myself with bitter chocolate, I am safe.  So this weekend I made some really rich, decadent, chocolatey brownies. 


They were practically black with chocolate.

For fun I threw in some chunks of 70% Cocoa dark chocolate!


Super Chocolate Brownies

1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 tablespoons water
3/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C.  Grease your baking pan.  Combine the sugar, cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add eggs, water, butter and vanilla and stir well.  Optional: Add nuts or chocolate pieces.  Spread into pan.  Bake for  about 25 minutes, until knife or toothpick inserted in center comes out cleanish.  Let cool before slicing.  DEVOUR!

I’m Sorry!

I’ve been distracted, by many things, but I should be better soon. AKA this GRE bitch that has been riding my ass will be over. Lets hope it goes well. So that is next Monday. So let me give you a peek to what I have been up to…
I will call it Goodness Incarnate, or If Jesus Was A Baker!

Otherwise know as Tulumba. For those whose don’t know what If Jesus Was A Baker is, it is an amazing pastry that is deep fried then soaked in a sugar syrup, then served while it is still crispy. It is amazing. It is practically juicy with the syrup on the inside and still crispy on the outside. Because I am not working, therefore do not have money to buy clothes in the next size up I am planning to avoid the sight of these incredible things. So if you see me in Turkey and I am twitching and gazing around in a strange manner it means there is probably Tulumba in the vicinity and in self preservation I am avoiding it.
