I have disappeared from the blogosphere for quite a few days. I had a few things to do and thought it’s best to stay focused. Very sorry for not visiting any blogs. Will catch up soon.
The horror of the Japan earthquake last Friday threw my life off balance completely. Life is really fragile. It’s time to remind ourselves not to take each other for granted. While thinking about it, I made this Chocolate Rum Brownies With Sultanas to share with friends. They liked it very much. I love the rum smell and the addition of the sultanas.
Making brownies is very easy. It’s melt-and-mix and little cleaning up to do. I used my previous brownie recipe at My Best Chewy Brownies For Friends and adjusted a little. Here’s the recipe:
250g dark chocolate
1C brown sugar
Put all Ingredients A into a pot and melt under low fire, stirring constantly.
Put Ingredients B into a bowl and beat with a whisk.
Add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture.
1 & 1/2C sultanas
Add the flour and sultanas to the mixture above. Stir until combined.
Pour the brownie batter into a shallow tin lined with baking paper and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 15-20 minutes or when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
I love this cake. The whole house smells so good of rum while it is baking. It is moist, flavourful and delicious.
