Fudgy Brownie Cake Recipe


Fudgy Brownie| Chocolate Brownie || How to make a fudgy brownie with step-by-step photos

Fudgy Brownie is delicious, soft with chocolaty flavored, the best evening snack even for breakfast with a hot cup of tea  
It is made with chocolate, cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, white sugar, butter, and egg- After testing what feels like a lifetime of brownies, these finally came out with a perfect texture, and have been made weekly ever since. You can see in the photos these brownies are without compromising the crispy, crackly crust

The one ingredient I added to these brownies that are different from most recipes is a small amount of hard cocoa icing on top, this icing makes the brownie more super tasty
I know that saying these are the “best brownies, ever” is a bold statement, but we truly believe it. I love brownies that are rich and extra chocolaty. These brownies with dense, fudgy middles and crinkly tops absolutely deliver

My Latest Fudgy Brwnie Cake Video:

A few Tips for these Fudgy Brownies
  1. Don’t add hot melted chocolate butter as they create those crackly tops
  2. Whisk your sugar and eggs really well
  3. Don’t overbeat your batter once the flour and cocoa powder are added. that creates air in the batter which will give you cake-like textured brownies.
  4. Try not to overbake them! I like mine at exactly 21:30 minutes. You can go a little bit over if you like them to set a bit more
  5. I baked my brownies on the middle shelf in the oven.
  6. In additional ingredients, you can add walnuts and chilgoza pine I didn’t add them because of the summer season and neither are available in the market too                             


What Pan Should I Use?
  1. We bake the brownies in an 8-inch square pan.
  2. If you double the recipe, a 9-inch by 13-inch rectangular pan is perfect and the brownies will be slightly thicker. 
  3. It is best to use light-colored or shiny metal baking pans since they cook more evenly. Dark pans can cause the bottoms of the brownies to cook more quickly. If a dark pan is all you have, reduce the oven temperature by 25 degrees F and keep an eye on the brownies as they bake

How To Tell When Brownies Are Done?
  1. Use a toothpick. Stick it into the center of the pan, and pull it out. If there is a wet batter on the toothpick, they need more time. If there are moist crumbs on the toothpick, they are done, and if there’s nothing on the toothpick, you might have overbanked them so definitely take them out of the oven.
  2. Use your eyes. Perfectly baked brownies will look a little underbaked in the middle. So when the edges look dry and the middle looks slightly underdone, take them out of the oven. Even if it ends up that you took them out a minute early, an underbaked square in the middle of the pan is much better than the whole pan being overbaked

To make these brownies first prepare chocolate fudge to it melts the chocolate with butter in a bowl by keeping it in hot boiling water saucepan-it acts called a double boiler

Stir to mix them very well and set aside_Let it cool down completely. You can complete this process in the microwave but I do prefer the stovetop method since I know it helps to achieve that beautiful crackly tops

Sift the flour along with cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder_Stir to combine well set aside

Grease the 8*8 square mold and then line parchment paper to keep aside_Preheat the oven to 180 C for 20 minutes


Take a medium-sized mixing bowl and crack the eggs along with brown and white sugar_Start beating at low speed for a minute so that the sugar could dissolve with the egg

Then speed up the beater on high until a fluffy and creamy texture. It will take 3-4 minutes to be beaten

Add chocolate syrup then further mix up well with a beater for 30-40 seconds_Towards the end pour cooled chocolate fudge into the egg batter_Beat them and give it another minute for well mixed


Add flour to the batter little by little, And keep mixing with the help of a spatula or hand whisker

Brownie batter is done

Transfer the batter to the cake mould_Tap it down so that excess air could remove from the bottom


Bake the brownie by keeping it on the middle rack at 180 C for 20-25 minutes or depending on oven-quality

Insert the toothpick in the middle of the brownie if the toothpick comes out clean then takes the cake pan out of the oven_Allow to cool down for 5 minutes 

Then unmold the brownie on another plate

Remove the baking paper

You can see the picture below, how is perfectly baked the brownie
Let the brownie stay on the wire rack. Cut the thin layer on top of the brownie or let it be-it ups to you_I didn’t remove the top a bit hard layer of a brownie because I love to eat crunchy layer

Hard icing over the brownie will look presentable:
Combine cocoa powder, icing sugar, and water in the small bowl_Stir to combine well

Turn over the cake and spread evenly the cocoa icing over the cake from all four sides. This icing will set on its own in a while

Once the icing gets set then cut the brownie into desirable-sized pieces

Fudgy Brownie is ready to serve
Serve with coffee or tea

Brownies can be stored for a week in the refrigerator


Bakery Style Zeera Biscuits Recipe

jeera biscuits recipe with step by step photos and video

Zeera Biscuits | Jeera Biscuits || How to Make Jeera Cookies with step-by-step photos and video.....

Zeera Biscuits are ideal for tea time little sweet and a little salty, I love to dip them in my chai so yummy. These biscuits are very different from cookies, biscuits are supposed to be crunchy and crispy while cookies are soft, flaky and chewy
In Pakistan, we people mostly call it a biscuit, not cookies anyhow these biscuits are great with tea so I made them crispy and baked them for a longer time I baked till the edges were nicely golden brown in colour

If you are not like crispy biscuits, bake them for a less time
I didn’t sprinkle cumin on top, because don’t like too much cumin in biscuits, but if you are a fan of more cumin biscuits you can sprinkle at the time of cutting cookies

  1. All baking ingredients should be at room temperature
  2. I used one egg in it if you are vegan or vegetarian can skip and use room temperature milk at the time of kneading dough if needed
  3. For enhancing the taste of zeera biscuit slightly roast cumin seeds for 30 seconds
  4. Using melted butter reduces the risk of the curdling egg after adding in creamed butter and sugar
  5. For baking can be used rough pateela, should be preheated and baked the biscuit for 25-30 minutes
  6. First, for five minutes bake on medium-high then reduce the heat to low and bake on low-medium heat until edges are browned
