This is my truly tried tested old faithful recipe for brownies and verified by everyone who has tried it….I don’t know why I have never shared it with you here on WP…I thought I had but never mind I now have shared it for you chocolate brownie lovers to enjoy! This recipe is part of my 20%… If you are wondering it is my 80% healthy eating and 20% indulgence plan…And indulgence it certainly is and very enjoyable BUT if you read the ingredients it is as healthy as a cholate brownie can be….. lol
- 1 cup of oil ( I use coconut oil)
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- 1 cup of flour
- 2/3 cup of good cocoa powder
- 1 cup walnuts roughly chopped
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp of vanilla essence
- 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
Mix oil, sugar and vanilla together then beat in the eggs.
Combine all dry ingredients except for walnuts and stir into mixture.
Put batter into a prepared baking dish and cook for about 1 hr on 175C/ 350F.
N.B. I sometimes add a 1/2tsp of dried chilli …those of you who know me know I just have to..ha ha
Next time I am going to add just a few cranberries or blueberries and maybe lose the walnuts and add some ground almonds…..
Also depending on what I have in the cupboard, I have used half oil and half-melted butter…
This is probably the best brownie mix I have made as the top is nice and crispy but with a gooey underneath…just how I like it or maybe just how this temperamental oven of mine works…lol
About Carol Taylor:
Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.
I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.
Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.
The environment is also something I am passionate about and there is a definite shift towards this on my blog this year…
Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!
Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all have a great week xx
