|Bittersweet Chocolate Brownies|
My first batch of brownies from scratch were inspired from Nigella's Everyday Brownies. Right from the start as I melted butter and sugar in the pan I had a hundred doubts - would I burn the sugar, is the consistency of the batter correct, would they rise, did I forget something....the usual things that kept me peeking through the glass oven door every few minutes of the 25 they were baking. But the first bite I took of the just cooled brownies told me it was worth it...the hour of utter nervousness, the spilled sugar, the mess of dishes and pans in the sink!
The mildly tough crust gave way to a silky, soft cake-like texture of the dark chocolate brownies. I used the recipe as Nigella gave it but added only 1/4 cup of bitter chocolate (70% cocoa) and was rewarded by a semi-sweet but luxuriously dark chocolate taste.
