How to Make Chocolate Brownies

  • Grease a 9-inch square or rectangular cake tin and dust liberally with flour.
  • Pour milk, butter, curd, vanilla essence in a large mixing bowl. Beat together until frothy.
  • Sift the baking powder, cocoa and baking soda with flour.
  • Add the flour-cocoa mix and sugar and beat until these blend well.
  • Fold in the walnuts and buttons and pour into the cake tin.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce to 160 degrees C and bake further for 25-30 minutes until done. To check if the brownie is done, insert a skewer. It should come out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Invert and tap out gently.
  • Cut into rectangles 1.5-inch wide and 2.5-inch long. Allow time to cool.
  • For the topping: Melt the butter and cocoa so that these blend well.
  • Take off the flame and gently stir in the corn syrup, sifted icing sugar and vanilla essence.
  • Stir gently until smooth. Allow it to cool so that it's thick enough to hold. Refrigerate if needed.
  • Spread the mixture over each brownie and place a walnut half in the centre. Consume the brownies within 2 days.
