Gooey Walnut Brownie

This blog had been brewing in our head for the last one year. Finally, we baked gooey walnut brownies!

Ever since the baking bug bit us, N was obsessed with baking perfect Gooey Brownies, slightly crisp on the top but soft and ooey-gooey inside with just that rarely found balance of deep rich chocolate flavour and sweetness! What you will love about this recipe is the distinct flavour of espresso coffee and sea salt crystals.

So lets start baking...

Ingredients ( 9 pieces - 2" square size)

10 1-inch square chunks of butter
1 and 1/8  cups icing sugar
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon coarse sea salt. Normal table salt wouldn't work here
¼ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon coffee powder
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cold eggs
⅔ cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
Parchment paper (optional)


1. Heat the butter in a pan till golden brown.

2. In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, sea salt, coffee powder and vanilla extract.

3. Add melted butter to the bowl and mix well till you get crumbly mix of all the ingredients.

4. Add egg one by one and mix till you get smooth and shiny batter.

5. Now, throw in chocolate and walnuts and mix well.

6. Let the mixture completely cool down. Meanwhile, pre heat oven at 160 degrees centigrade for 10 mins.

7. Cover your baking dish with parchment paper. If you don't have parchment paper, grease your dish and dust with all purpose flour.

8. Transfer the batter to the dish and bake it at 160 degrees for 25 - 30 mins (depends on your oven setting ) with both heating elements on.

9. Check by inserting a toothpick  / knife. It should almost come clean.

10. Before cutting, let it completely cool down for almost 1 - 2 hrs.

Warm before serving. It of course goes really well with vanilla ice cream. 

Gorge on !
