Intensely Chocolate Brownies

A very chocolate brownie, soft, heavy, sticky, just as it should be. This is the brownie that always turns out. Contains a triple portion of chocolate – 300g!
To prepare a brownie, you only need chocolate, butter, eggs, flour, sugar and salt.
It has a unique taste of salted caramel thanks to the addition of dark muscovado brown sugar and salt. This is probably the fastest cake you can make. The easiest. It always works out. You don’t need to know how to bake! No whipping, no rising, no yeast, no baking powder.

What is brownie like?
Soft inside. Very filling. Very sticky. This is not an ordinary chocolate cake. It doesn’t need any cream or icing because it’s perfect on its own.

How to bake brownies? When is the brownie ready?
Bake brownies without fan just conventional heating. A brownie baked at 160 °C (320 °F) for 35 minutes has a fudge-like consistency but still has a soft center.
When you take the cake out of the oven, it may seem soft and underbaked, and it’s supposed to be that way! The cake should cool down thoroughly before cutting because it has a lot of chocolate and we don’t want it to leak out. That’s why we don’t check the cake with a stick.
Don’t bake the cake for too long or it will turn out a chocolate cake and not a brownie. Remove the cake from the oven immediately. If you leave the cake after baking in a hot oven, the brownie will come out dry. Remove the cake and set aside. Leave mold to cool.
If you want a crispy shell and a soft center, bake at a higher temperature but for a shorter time, e.g. 180 °C (356°F) and 25 minutes. Remember that each oven bakes differently.
If you are not sure whether the cake is ready, look at the edges of the cake. If they peel off the paper, the cake is ready. Or if bubbles appear on the surface of the brownie, the cake is also ready.

How to make brownies in 5 minutes?
You can mix the batter with a spoon, you don’t have to use a mixer. You can melt the butter and chocolate in a pot or in the microwave. Remember to let the chocolate and butter cool down before adding it to the rest of the ingredients, as too hot chocolate could curdle the eggs.
You can also use regular sugar for this recipe, but the cake will not be as moist and caramel-like as with dark muscovado sugar. You can also replace sugar with honey, syrups such as maple or a mixture of sugar and molasses.

How to store brownies?
Brownies don’t have to be refrigerated, but you can do it. However, it then becomes hard, so it is a good idea to take it out of the fridge in advance.

What can you eat brownies with?
With a scoop of ice cream (e.g. cream), with fruit mousse, with fruit (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries), with jam (e.g. currant, raspberry), with whipped cream, with chocolate icing or you can eat it on its own.

Can you add baking powder to brownies?
We do not add baking powder or baking soda to brownies. The cake should not rise like a sponge cake, but be heavy, thick and very chocolatey.

What chocolate for brownies?
I use dark chocolate with 70% cocoa. When buying chocolate, check its weight because stores are increasingly selling 90g instead of 100g bars.

Is brownie sweet?
The brownie from this recipe is sweet, salty and very chocolatey.

Why is brownie liquid?
If the brownie is soft when you take it out of the oven, it’s good. When the brownie cools down, the chocolate will set and the cake will be harder. The brownie inside should be soft when cut, but should not spread like lava cake. If it spreads, it means that it was baked too short. But don’t worry, if it was in the oven for 30 minutes, you won’t get food poisoning, you can eat it safely, like lava cake :).

Brownie is perfect for people on a vegetarian, flexitarian and pescatarian diet.
The proportions given below make 1 brownie with a diameter of 24 cm.
