Nigella’s Everyday Brownies 【Nigella的】天天布朗尼


如果我说每个food blog或者更正确的应该说每个baking blog都会有的甜点是香蕉蛋糕或满分你不会不同意吧?!那接下来呢?据我的观察排名第二的应该是布朗尼(brownies)。

在外头大多数时候吃到的brownies都是干干的,而且超甜,体质偏热的我每次吃了肯定喉咙痛,这也就是为什么至今在Cook.Bake.Love还看不到brownies的踪影。


不知道为什么最近的我很crave for chocolate,之前做了这个Q嫩巧克力戚风意犹未尽,上个星期五做了chocolate cupcake(另一个我觉得非常值得推荐的食谱,但还需要改进,改进后会post上来),昨晚又再蠢蠢欲动,于是就产生Cook.Bake.Love的第一个brownies,也是我的brownies处女作。

选了Nigella这个非常简单的食谱,如果你试过之前我推荐的Nigella’s Chocolate Chocolate Chips Muffin(中文版看这里)你应该也会对这个食谱有信心。


我觉得这个食谱完全不需烘培技巧,唯一要注意的是烘烤时间和温度,brownies烤熟的测试和一般蛋糕不一样,烤好时表面看起来是干干的但是用手轻轻按压可以感觉到里头是会微微波动的,用cake tester插入出来后不必清洁,所以你必须熟悉烤箱的习性。我觉得第一次做我还是烤过头了,中间还好边缘略嫌干了点。

话说这黑鲁鲁的布朗尼特别难拍特别是在晚上没有自然灯光下,拍照时意外拍到一张开闪光灯的,虽然不喜欢有闪光灯的照片最后还是决定放上来好让大家看清楚这brownies的真面目。

以下是我减半换算后的食谱(糖份已经减过,嗜甜的要酌量增加糖份)。原食谱请看这里

【Nigella的】天天布朗尼

材料:
无盐奶油 75克
黄糖 70克 (嗜甜的可以增加到100克)
普通面粉 75克
无糖可可粉 35克
苏打粉 ½ 茶匙
盐 1/8茶匙(如用有盐奶油可省略)
鸡蛋 2颗
香草精 ½ 茶匙
巧克力豆/切碎巧克力 ½ 杯(我用65克Hershey’s semi-sweet mini chocolate chips)
糖粉(撒面用,随意)

做法:
1)预热烤箱180C,烤盘铺上烤盘纸或锡箔纸(我用9”x5” loaf pan, 烤好的brownies比较厚,7”x7”比较理想)。
2)用一个中等锅小火溶化奶油,加入黄糖搅拌至糖溶化,离火。
3)筛入混合均匀的粉类,拌均(此时面糊会很干)。
4)鸡蛋和香草精拌均,加入面糊拌均,加入巧克力豆/切碎巧克力,马上倒入烤盘,用刮刀抹平表面,180C烤20分钟 (视个人烤箱而定,我用180C烤10分钟,转170C烤5分钟再转160度烤5分钟)。

厨房笔记:
1) 觉得可可粉可以减少一点,65克的巧克力豆不够,下次要用多点。
2) 烘烤时间还可以再缩短。

Below is half recipe with my own adaption. Original recipe please refer to here.

Nigella’s Everyday Brownies

Ingredients:
75g unsalted butter
70g light brown sugar (use up to 100g if you have sweet tooth)
75g plain flour
35g cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt (omit this if using salted butter)
2 eggs
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup chocolate chips/chopped milk chocolate (I used 65g Hershey’s semi-sweet mini chocolate chips)
Confectioners' sugar, to dust (optional)

Method:
1) Preheat the oven to 180C. Line baking pan with baking paper or aluminum foil. (I used a 9”x5” loaf pan, that’s why my brownies is thicker, 7”x7” is more ideal).
2) Melt the butter over a gentle heat in a medium-sized saucepan. When it's melted, add the sugar, stirring with a wooden spoon (still over a low heat) to help it blend with the melted butter.
3) Whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and pinch of salt, and then stir into the pan; when mixed (this will be a very dry mixture, and not wholly blended at this stage), remove from the heat (I remove from heat in step 2).
4) In a bowl or jug, whisk the eggs with the vanilla extract and then mix into the brownie mixture in the pan.
5) Stir in the chopped chocolate and quickly pour and scrape into baking pan, spreading the mixture with a spatula, and cook in the preheated oven 180C for about 20 minutes (I baked at 180C for the first 10 mins, switched to 170C for 5 mins and 160C for the last 5 mins). It will look set, dark and dry on top, but when you feel the surface, you will sense it is still wobbly underneath and a cake tester will come out gungy. This is desirable.

Kitchen notes:
1) I think can reduce the cocoa powder a little bit. 65g of chocolate chips is not enough, next time should use more.
2) Baking time can be reduced as I find my brownies slightly over baked at the edge.

  3. 我觉得 Nigella 是一位很有意思的主持人,今天看 TLC 她的 Express Cook,她切羊肉时说不要问她要逆纹还是顺纹切,因为她完全搞不懂这些,我就觉得好笑,这个女人很坦白,但是她的甜点却又很好吃,我做过她的 Totally chocolate chips cookies 和巧克力慕斯,都好赞 ^_^

    对了,我到现在都还没尝试做过 brownie 咧。。呵呵
