Level: For Beginner Bakers
Bake Temp: 150 degrees
- 1 cup All purpose flour
- 1/4 cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp Castor sugar
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 1/4 tsp Baking soda
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 90 gm White chocolate, chopped
- 90 gm Dark chocolate, chopped
- 1 tbsp Instant coffee powder (see Note 1)
- 1/3 cup Warm Milk
- 1/2 cup Yogurt, whisked finely
- 1/4 cup Canola oil
- 1 tsp Vanilla essence
- Parchment paper to line the tray
- 8″X 8 ” deep square baking pan
- Preheat oven to 150 C.
- Dissolve the instant coffee powder in 1/3 cup of milk. Stir well. Set aside.
- In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, except the chocolate and using a whisk, mix thoroughly until well incorporated.
- Line tray with parchment paper with a little extra paper on two sides to easily lift out brownies. (See Note 2)
- Make a well in the center of the dry mixture from step 3.
- Add the coffee, yogurt, vanilla and oil.
- Using a hand whisk, gently mix the ingredients until well combined, especially wet ingredients with dry ingredients. (See Note 3)
- Pour half the batter into the lined tray and evenly spread using a spatula making sure it covers the whole tray.
- Gently tap the tray on the counter.
- Sprinkle white chocolate bits over the batter evenly. (See Note 4)
- Add dark chocolate bits to the remaining batter and pour over the batter in the tray.
- Gently even the surface of the batter using a spatula.
- Tap the tray on the counter again, gently.
- Pop the tray into the oven, sit back and relax. (See Note 5)
- After about 30 minutes, insert a toothpick into mixture; should come out clean if done. If not bake further for 5 mins.
- If the toothpick comes out clean, then the brownies are ready to come out.
- Once done, remove from the oven and let cool for an hour before you take it out of the pan.
- I used Sunrise
- Never never make a brownie in a pan that’s not lined. I’ve had too many brownie disasters when I did that and disaster wisdom is always wise.
- Don’t worry about the denseness of the brownie. A brownie is dense but hey! we like density. (In physics and in brownies)
- Don’t do it like I did; in a fashion that’s typical of squirrels eating fruit.
- I made my Dosa Maavu while I waited for the brownies to bake and the aroma that filled the house more than took away the stress and strain of the monotonous cleaning process of the wet grinder.
