Baking| Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies … one bowl brownies!

“There is no chocolate anonymous because no one wants to quit.”

Double Chocolate Fudge BrowniesTheres been plenty of good chocolate stuff that’s been popping up across the blogosphere. Its just a matter of time and I get seriously tempted. Even if I resolve to stay away, the no longer ‘forever on a diet’ teen craves something chocolate. These Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies were a result of her last craving … {and there have been a few more}. Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies

 Double Chocolate Fudge BrowniesI was inspired by two wonderful food bloggers from two different continents. Tamara from Croatia who blogs at Bite My Cake posted scrumptious brownies. Then pretty soon after, Alli, the English lass from New Zealand @ Pease Pudding served up these, her post inspiring me to take endless pictures too!Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies ... one bowl browniesEventually baked decadent fudgy brownies as the feed in my inbox was getting increasingly delicious. I first succumbed to virtual chocolate craving, and was soon energised into brownie baking, but the lack of time and energy had me improvise and make life simpler. Simple enough … one bowl = less washing …  and mixing by hand!Double Chocolate Fudge BrowniesDouble Chocolate Fudge BrowniesMr PAB is not a brownie lover. I think that’s because brownies were the only thing I could back seven years ago and he had had an overdose of them. I was constantly baking the only recipe I knew … and then the blog bug bit me!Double Chocolate Fudge BrowniesPraise from him for these brownies made me stand up and take notice. I don’t have a sweet tooth so barely ever indulge in sweet desserts. More often than never I depend on feedback unless of course something has coffee in it, in which case I could happily gobble it up and declare my own verdict!Double Chocolate Fudge BrowniesHmmm … one bite, then another and soon the square was gone. These were wonderful indeed. Chocolaty, fudgy, chocolaty, fudgy … decadent and very indulgent brownies! I would have added chopped walnuts but was out of them. These 20 squares disappeared very fast.Double Chocolate Fudge BrowniesFun to make, quick too with minimum washing up, these must be the fastest brownies and one of the most delicious bites I have made! {I have to admit I made another very yummy flourless batch soon after … but then thats another story!}

    I made your brownies. After they were cooled I put some raw chocolate chip cookie dough(without the eggs) on top and then swirled melted semi sweet chocolate on top. Too die for!

      Thanks for taking the time to write back Liz. I love the idea of a raw cookie dough sans eggs on top for the special effect! Must try that the next time.

    Hi Deeba, My first time around here and I absolutely bowled over! You are so talented. Admire your passion. I am just a beginner and am overwhelmed by your blog! I am sure I will be coming here often now. Was wondering if I can use a substitute for vanilla sugar?

    • 4 years ago

      Thanks for your sweet words Sheetal. Plain granulated sugar is fine instead of vanilla sugar.

  • You make all these desserts and don’t have a sweet tooth?? :O Wow.

    Brownies are the best, absolutely no going wrong with them :)

    Hi Deeba
    The recipe doesn”t ask for baking powder. Has it been omitted or can the recipe do with out it?

    • 2 years ago

      Hi Mansi, I normally don’t use baking powder in brownies to keep them fudgy. I do sometimes use baking powder if I am making a gluten free version. Hope this helps.
