Have you ever had that feeling of having something right that very moment? At times I get these freaky cravings of having something sweet.

It was almost midnight when I had one such seizure a couple of day’s back, this time it was for something chocolate. Here in Bangalore stepping out of the house to search for some open shop/ restaurant after 11.30pm is like searching for the blue moon. But, I had to have something with chocolate. There were no chocolate bars at home, so I took upon the task to prepare some chocolate brownies. After an entire day of work, it’s really a little tiresome to bake chocolate brownies, but nevertheless I tried to bake the easiest chocolate brownie that comes to mind.

30mins of working in the kitchen and I had a batch of a dozen chocolate brownie ready. I had tried preparing chocolate cakes in microwave previously, but they didn’t come out so spongy. This time, I didn’t take the chance and baked it in the oven.

I was a bit anxious as the brownies were eggless, but I using two bananas really helped. The inside was soft and layered, and yes of course my little brownie cupcakes really quenched my thirst of chocolate that night.

Preparation time: 10mins
Baking time: 10min for a batch of 6 brownie cupcakes
Makes 12 brownie cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour/ maida
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup drinking chocolate
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 small bananas
  • 400ml milk
  • 100gms unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • A handful of walnuts/ pecans

Preparation:

  • In a bowl mix the dry ingredients together the dry ingredients and keep aside
  • In another bigger size bowl mash the bananas finely, pour in half the milk, and butter; whisk till it froths
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the milk and fold in. Pour in more milk as and when required
  • The batter should be little thick, but not very dry. Add the walnuts/ pecan to the batter
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C
  • Pour the batter in equal proportions to the cupcake tray
  • Bake for about 10mins, or till a skewer inserted comes out clean
  • Let it cool for a couple of minutes before you gorge on those

Hot Tips – I used cupcake tray to bake the brownies, if you wish you can pour the patter in a baking tray and cut according to your wish once it’s done.

The chocolate brownies tasted best next day, when I had it with some ice-cream and chocolate sauce.

These sinful choco brownies goes to “Only Baked” event by Harini and also to Kid’s Delight – Mini Bites hosted by Champa.
