A Brownie for a Cold Night.

Food is Celebration.

Hello again!

Its mighty cold isn't it? I mean its been impossible for me to move around without sneezing within inches of my life! I've been reduced to becoming a blanket-ghost now! (You know - when you used to cover yourself with a blanket and try to scare your brother! That kinda ghost!) To top it, I've come down with a cold and don't like it one bit. :(

To beat a cold, people might suggest one or all of the following :

  1. Snuggle into bed and get tangled in blankets!
  2. Drink tea all day long.
  3. Wear every fluffy, woollen thing you and your mother possess.
  4. Go shopping, do the mall walk and heat up seeing the prices!
  5. Or just dunk yourself into a tub of hot water!

After spending most of Saturday doing most the above, I decided it was high time to get off my bum and DO something! 

I mean Saturdays and Sundays are days meant for one to do what they've been longing to do all week! And to let these oh-so important days to go waste? Not in my world. Nope. Not at all!

Yet, a cold is one of the most unpleasant things I find in this world. I mean, I've had stitches, broken bones and all that thingamajig, but catching a cold beats them any day!

I wanted needed something to cheer myself up, soon , and there it was.

The answer to all of life's questions!


I quickly shuffled through every recipe I had and found a recipe for the most lovely, moist and decadent brownies ever!!

I thought sharing it would be a good idea, so here it is!

Stuff that you need :

1/3 cup of Dark Chocolate ( The cooking variety is best, but if you don't have that, Bourneville will suffice!)
1/2 a cup of Butter
2/3 cup of White Granulated Sugar
1/3 Cup of Brown Sugar (In case you don't have this, just add 1/3 cup of white sugar more!)
2 Eggs.
1 tablespoon of Yoghurt.
1/2 a cup of Chopped Walnuts.
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Heaped Cup of Flour. (Maida)

The method :

  • Preheat the oven at 180 C and prepare a pan for baking.
  • Put the Chocolate and the butter to melt over a pan of water.
  • Once they both have melted to form a smooth, dark liquid, stir in all the sugar. Mix well.
  • The resulting mixture will be grainy, with undissolved sugar crystals, but that's alright, just remove the bowl from heat and let it cool.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the two eggs. You don't need to beat them for eons, just whisk them like you would for an omelet.
  • Now add the cool chocolate+butter+sugar mixture to this and combine.
  • Add the vanilla essence and yoghurt.
  • Add the Flour and mix with a light hand.
  • Lastly, stir in the chopped walnuts.
  • Now pour onto the prepared pan and garnish with some more walnuts.
  • Dunk it into the oven and let it cook for 25-30 minutes.

  • Cut into squares and serve.
  • Prepare to be praised high and low when you serve this to your (hungry) family!
This recipe is so easy and the end product so fudgey and sticky and awesome, that my family and I wiped out an entire batch within minutes!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

Bon apetit!!
