Simple brownies | Recipe

I was craving for brownies this weekend and since there has been a while since I had them, I also had an excuse to bake them. After all, it was my birthday on Saturday and I didn't feel like baking a cake. Some of you might have noticed a little number change in a sidebar. Or maybe you didn't. I am never up for 'bragging' about my b-day and certainly not for being in a center of attention. That's why we will jump right into this recipe. 

You will need: 
- 250 g butter
- 250 g dark chocolate
- 250 g (brown) sugar
- 10 g vanilla sugar
- 180 g flour
- 50 g powder cocoa
- 5 eggs
(- 20 g butter for baking tray)
The recipe inspiration comes from here (but the site is Slovenian).

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. 
2. Pour butter and dark chocolate in a saucepan and melt until smooth texture. Set aside to cool.
3. Mix dry ingredients together; flour, brown sugar, vanilla sugar and powder cocoa.
4. Add (cooled) melted chocolate and eggs to the dry ingredients and mix until the mixture is combined (and thick).
5. Spread 20 g butter to a baking tray (or use baking spray or backing sheet) and pour in the chocolate mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes. 
6. When the cake is baked and cooled, slice it into tiny squares.

In my version I added grated walnuts in the mixture as well as I sprinkled them on top (since it was very thick I wasn't worrying about walnuts sinking in). You can go for crushed walnuts or any other nuts, I'm sure the taste will be brought to another level.
As I like to keep my recipes simple and quick, I hope this wasn't a dissapointment to some of you. If I stick to recipes like this one today, I know there is a very little chance for me to get anything wrong. 

Please, share your favourite dish, whether it is a main course or a dessert, I'd like to know :)
