Walnut Brownies


Everyone loves brownies! This is no question, I know so I am sure everyone has a go-to recipe for brownies, as well. The situation is similar to cookies. Each and everyone has different tastes so I am going to describe how mine compares. 
The recipe is from a le Cordon Bleu book and I've made it for hundreds of times. It is a huge favorite in my family, I like to under bake it for a few minutes so the middle is a bit wet. It is ah-maaazing! This time I let it bake as it is supposed to be but only because I made it for next day for our small Thanksgiving friendly get-together. It is dense, yet light. Chewy, not cakey with a decadent chocolate flavor. The appearance is not the best but who cares when it tastes like pure heaven? My family calls it ugly but lovely :)
Oh and before I forget to add, there is a light chocolate ganache on top that I spread before the brownies cool down so it would absorb most of it. I noticed that this way it is more delicious!
ps: using whole wheat flour makes it even more gooey. This time I used simple all-purpose but I usually work with whole wheat spelt flour, so I can only recommend it.

Walnut Brownies
for a 20 cm pan

200 grams soft butter
vanilla
200 grams sugar
80 grams chocolate - the darker the better (I like 60-70%)
2 slightly beaten eggs
100 grams flour - whole wheat spelt works best
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
200 grams chopped walnuts

for the ganache
1 dl créme double (heavy cream is fine)
100 grams dark chocolate
40 grams soft butter

Grease the pan and set it aside. Mix the butter with the vanilla and sugar until fluffy. Pre-heat the oven to 170C. 

Melt the chocolate over boiling water. When the chocolate is melted put it aside. 

Add the beaten eggs to the butter mixture gradually. Work it together and add in the melted chocolate, as well.

Mix together the dry ingredients and add it to the wet mixture. Add in the walnuts and pour the batter into the pan. 

Bake for 25 minutes if you want a slightly wet inside or 29 minutes to fully bake. 

For the ganache bring the creme to a boil. Take it off the heat and add in the chocolate. Mix it until dissolved and add the butter to it. Put it in the fridge for a while and then spread it on the brownies.

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Coconut-Almond Butter stuffed Chocolate Cups

I wasn't gonna make a dessert today. Let alone something chocolatey. No no no! I wanted to have a dessert-free week. And look, I made chocolate cups! How did this happen??  Anyways... These cups are amazing. Seriously, finger-licking good. Not exaggerating. You need to make this!! I used to go crazy for Reese's but after a while I got so fed up with the excessive sweetness. Yeah, I find Reese's way too sweet and too dense. That's why I fell in love with these cups. These are not overly sweet, yet really rich and the salt on top  takes it to the next level. I am in love. Although I did eat only a half of it. But I'm thinking hard to eat another half :) I might as well just do it. What's the harm? 1 pound on my hips? Oh well! :P
So it all started with me buying a bag of almonds. To make almond butter. Then I wanted something extra so I started making coconut butter first and I kinda added more coconut than almonds... It's like raffaello butter. Utterly deliciou…
