Hey guys! It has been raining cats and dogs these past couple of days. Someone should start doing the reverse rain dance in order to stop the rain from falling!
On another note, (as of 21st Jan @ 8.30pm) we have 10, 168 views! When we realized that we had gotten more 10, 000 views, we were totally shocked and pleased all at the same time. We can’t even count to 10, 000! We would like to say a HUMONGOUS thank you to everyone who has visited/commented/liked our posts in the past 6 months! When we started this blog, we never imaged that soooo many people would actually be bothered to read about our food adventures. We even asked ourselves, “Who’s gonna read our blog?” So we’re really really grateful for each and every view/comment/like that we’ve gotten! Thank you so much guys, and we hope that you’ll continue supporting us! 🙂
Beat eggs with a mixer in a large bowl. Then add sugar, salt, vanilla and beat for 1 minute.
Add melted butter and blend. In another bowl, mix flour and cocoa with a whisk until well blended.
Add flour mixture to egg mixture and mix until well combined.
Spread onto a greased jelly roll pan (12 x 17) and bake at 175 degrees Celsius for 20-25 minutes.
Glaze: 4 cups powdered sugar (3.5 cups would work just fine, in our opinion!) 1/2 cup butter, softened 1/2 cup cocoa Milk (approximately 0.5 cup)
Blend powdered sugar, butter, and cocoa along with enough milk to make the frosting a spreadable consistency (You do not want to add more than 1/2 cup of milk or your frosting will be too wet. You want a thick frosting that’s barely spreadable)
Spread over the brownies after they have cooled for 15 minutes. Keep spreading as the frosting melts making it even on the brownies. Allow brownies to continue to cool.
Chocolate glazed brownie
We decided to try this recipe out as it seemed easy enough, and we had all the necessary ingredients on hand. Luckily, we were not disappointed! This recipe is a keeper, as everyone who tried it liked it alot! However, some of our friends did mention that it was slightly too sweet (probably due to the chocolate glaze), so if you want to make sure that the brownies aren’t overly sweet, cut down the icing sugar in the chocolate glaze! One suggestion is to taste the glaze as your gradually add the icing sugar, until it reaches your desired level of sweetness. Also, we felt that the brownie was more ‘cakey’ than ‘brownie-ey’, which is probably due to the fact that the recipe was aiming for a fudgey brownie!
We really like this brownie recipe (although Elisa would have liked it better if it had nuts in them, to give it a nice contrast in texture against all that fudgey-ness!) and we’ll be sure to try it out again sometime soon, maybe with our own additions like nuts etc! We hope that you do try out this recipe and rejoice in all its intense chocolatey and fudgey goodness!
Also, we know that we haven’t been posting recipes lately probably due to the fact that we haven’t had much time to bake! We promise that we will try to bake more and post up more delicious recipes for y’all 🙂 In the meantime, we hope that you enjoy reading our various food reviews.
