One Bowl Brownie

I love brownies.. who doesn't right?? Sunday afternoon after a spicy lunch, all i could think of was dark chocolate chip brownie. Most of the baking requires at least 2 bowls, mixers, measuring cups... I was too lazy to wash so many dishes after baking, so I decided to bake my brownie using 1 bowl and a spatula!!

Ingredients ( Servings 10)

All purpose flour     3/4 cup
Dark Cooking chocolate/Chocolate chip  1/2 cup + 1/8 cup
Butter         1/3 cup
Sugar          2/3 cup
Egg             2
Vanilla extract       1 tsp
Salt       1/4 tsp


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a 9in x 5in baking tray with parchment paper.
Melt butter and 1/2 cup chocolate in a large heat proof bowl. You can either melt in a microwave or use double boiler(refer notes for double boiler technique).
Combine the chocolate and butter well. To this add sugar, vanilla extract and salt and mix until smooth.
Add egg one by one and mix it well. Finally add  all purpose flour and mix until well combined.
Pour this into the prepared tray and sprinkle rest of the chocolate chip on top of the batter.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Notes: Double boiler Technique
This is a method used to melt chocolate under indirect heat. All you need is a saucepan to hold hot water and a bowl that can fit securely over the sauce pan.
Pour hot water to the sauce pan. Heat the saucepan until water begins to boil. Turn of the heat and place the bowl with chocolate over the water. Be careful not to mix  water with chocolate.
Once the chocolate starts melting, stir it gently with a spatula. When almost all the chocolate is melted, lift it from the saucepan. Stir continuously until the chocolate is smooth and shiny.
