How to make Brownies (with step by step pics)
Step 1 – In large bowl add half cup of butter pieces and melt ( do not boil). You can also melt the butter in a sauce pan. Let the butter cool slightly and then add a cup of sugar.
Step 2- Whisk the butter and sugar for thirty seconds.
Step 3- Add the room temperature eggs and vanilla extract to the butter and sugar mixture.
Step 4 – Using a whisk mix the eggs and vanilla extract until well blended.
Step 5 – Add the all purpose flour, coco powder, salt and baking powder to the egg mixture.
Step 6 – Mix all the ingredients until well combined. Add walnuts or any nuts of your choice and fold in the nuts in the batter. I did not add any nuts.
Step 7- Spray a 8 by 8 baking pan with oil. To easily remove the brownies I lined the pan with a parchment paper and sprayed oil and dusted with some coco powder. Transfer the batter to the pan and bake at 350 F or 175 C for 25 minutes.
Step 8 – Let the brownies cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in a air tight container at room temperature or in the fridge for long shelf life.
