Nigella's Brownies

I bought Nigella Lawson's "How To Be A Domestic Goddess" and "Forever Summer" last week and baked her brownies from the former 2 days ago.

I don't think much of it. While it's pleasantly fudgey, it lacks a certain complexity. I can't say there's anything special about them. What a waste of 200g of good chocolate and a bar of butter from grass-fed cows:-P

Recipe (Adapted from "How to be a Domestic Goddess" )

250g butter
250g dark chocolate
4 eggs
1tbs vanilla
335 sugar
150g flour
190g hazelnuts
1/2 tsp salt

1) Melt butter and chocolate together. Set aside and allow it to cool.
2) Combine flour with salt.
3) In another bowl, beat the eggs with vanilla and sugar.
4) Add it into the chocolate mixture. Then, add the flour and nuts/

Bake at 180 degrees for about 25 minutes (could be longer or shorter depending on your oven and what size pan you use).

What else I have been doing:
Malaysian Kari Ikan!! I was too lazy to buy bendi (lady's fingers/ okra) but had half a box of broccoli sitting in the freezer so I dumped that in. Ate it with roti canai and froze the rest for another day:-D

Marbled Banana Loaf Flavoured with Chocolate, Rum and Lime. The Dutchman loved it.
