Triple Chocolate Brownie

It has been a long time since I last baked.  Too many activities went on in the earlier part of 2022 and also I was coughing for the longest time early this year.   These days, I am spending most of the time exercising for a healthier body.

Now I am slowly finding back my mojo to bake since the big kid is home most of the time.  I hate it when he snacks so much and I cannot control the sugar intake.

I actually baked this some weeks ago and we love it.  This time I did a no-nuts version as my son is not a big fan of it.  I also cut down on the sugar as I feel it is sweet to pair with ice cream.  

Note: if you are not pairing it with ice cream, maybe 150g is okay.

Findings: I was worried that it might be too sweet since I added in the caramel but luckily it was okay for us.

This year, son did not want a cake for his birthday as the sister is not able to be here for the joint celebration.    This is really sweet of him to do so.

What you need:

150g dark chocolate 
80g butter
2 tbsp rice bran oil

130g castor sugar

2 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla

80g plain flour
25g cocoa powder
Pinch of salt

80g walnut (roasted), break into small pieces (I omitted it this round)
100g chocolate chip (I added some caramel pieces and candied chocolate chips since I have it on hand) 


Preheat the oven to 160℃.   Line an 8” square pan.

Combine dark chocolate, butter, and rice bran oil into a microwaveable bowl and do 30 sec each time, stir until chocolate is totally melted.  

Whisk in castor sugar until sugar is dissolved.

Whisk in the eggs and vanilla until combined and shiny.

Sift in plain flour, cocoa powder, and salt and fold until combined.

Pour into the pan, scatter the chocolate chip and walnut, and level evenly.

Bake for 25 - 30 mins.
