Chocolate Almond Brownies


No words today as I'm having a really really bad head ache but wanna post this as it's lying in drafts for quite some time. Would just like to mention that these brownies made chocolate hater Ma, go bananas over them!!! The crunchy nutty top and chewy chocolatey base made us all go head over heels...

Recipe Source:
Ria's Collection, she adapted it from Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy by Alice Medrich. Pg 225

Ingredients:Unsalted butter - 4 tbsp
Chocolate chips - 11 oz (approx.300g) - (I used morde milk compound of same quantity)
Sugar - 2/3 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp (original recipe says optional but I would say mandatory)
Eggs - 2 large,cold
Unbleached all purpose flour - 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp
Almonds - 1 cup, chopped 

Method:
1. Melt the chocolate and butter together, till smooth.
2. Stir in the sugar, salt and vanilla.
3. Add 1 egg, stirring until it is incorporated. Repeat with the second egg.
4. Stir in the flour and beat with a wooden spoon or spatula until the batter is smooth and glossy and comes away from the sides of the bowl; it is critical that the batter pulls away, so do not stop mixing until it does.
5. Line a baking tin with foil. Pour batter into the prepared tin, spread it evenly but with lots of raised swirls and ridges and top with almonds.
6. Bake for 30-35 mins, until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out with a few moist crumbs, not totally gooey.
7. Cool on rack, lift the foil ends to transfer the brownies to a cutting board. Cut into 16 squares.
