Chocolate Brownie

Brownies are my all-time favourite! I decided to bake some to satiate my cravings. The best thing about these brownies is – I’ve replaced maida with whole wheat flour and still, they tasted so good. It’s the first time I tried brownies and they turned out absolutely delicious.


  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Butter (Amul)
  • 1/2 Cup Dark Chocolate (Morde)
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder 
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Roasted Almonds (coarsely crushed)
  • 3/4 Cup Powdered Sugar


Prep: 15 minutes
Cooking: 35 minutes

  1. Mix whole wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, powdered sugar and sieve this mixture.
  2. Mix butter and powdered sugar till it turns soft and fluffy.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate on a double boiler and add it the to the butter and sugar mixture. Also, add crushed almonds and give it a good mix.
  4. Now add the dry ingredients mixture to it and keep adding milk in parts. Mix all the ingredients by cut and fold method (do not over mix).
  5. Transfer the mixture into a greased tin. Tap the tin so the mixture spreads evenly and the air pockets are removed.
  6. Place the tin in a preheated oven for 30 minutes at 180c. 
  7. You can also bake in a pan – add salt in a pan and heat it for 10 minutes. Then place the tin and cover the pan completely (keep the gas flame medium).  
  8. After 30-35 minutes prick a toothpick or knife in the centre of the brownie to check if it’s done (if the toothpick comes out clean that means it’s done). Let it cool down.
  9. Garnish the brownies with crushed almonds or any dry fruit of your choice.
