This is the first time I find myself sharing a recipe on my blog. It's one of the most requested posts ever since I posted this post. I didn't know a lot of my readers are a foodie, just like yours truly. Okay, back to the brownies. There are tons of reasons to love about these brownies and I'm going to spill the tea in a minute! So without any further ado, here's the secret to gooey brownies with shiny crust!

A lot of chocolate. 

Yup. It scares the crap out of me because I'm not a fan of chocolate. At all. But I guess, this is an exception. I mean, look at the shiny and satiny sheen on top and mind you they're so very delicate and heavenly. Here's what you will need.

Gooey brownies with shiny crust recipe: 
  • 400g dark chocolate 
  • 150g butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence 
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 100g castor sugar
  • 30g cocoa powder 
  • a handful of chocolate chips (optional)

  • Start out by pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees for about 20 minutes.

  • Then, melt butter and dark chocolate together. A double boiler will do but always keep an eye on the mixture. Do not allow the mixture to over boil, okay?

  • While that melt, beat in brown sugar, castor sugar, eggs, and vanilla essence until they are well combined and have that golden-brown color. If you're a sucker for vanilla-scented everything, this part is going to be tough for you because it smells heavenly. 

  • Your butter and chocolate mixture must be melted by now. So, take that mixture and pour it into the sugars, eggs and vanilla essence mixture. Stir until they are well combined. 

  • Once the batter is well stirred and completely combined, add your self-raising flour and cocoa powder all together into the batter.

  • Add a handful of chocolate chip once the batter is well stirred.

  • Spread into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes where the edges should be set and the center is slightly moist, but not uncooked! :)

  • Cool the beautiful brownies on a wire rack for a few minutes and it should be good to go. I mean, you can enjoy the brownies but careful not to eat too much because this stuff goes away fast haha.

I find this easy as pie to follow but of course, I had to do multiple batches of brownies until I get the perfect one. No regrets baking these gooey brownies because they're so full of chocolate and scrumptious! That's all for now and I hope you enjoyed!
