Dark Chocolate Brownies

For these ultra-rich, ultra-decadent fudgy brownies, I use a simple and a run-of-the-mill recipe. Dark Chocolate Brownies are the go-to dessert in my family whenever we need a chocolate fix or we need something to tame our fussy toddler with.

Just last weekend, we tried something really really fun. We made Dark Chocolate Brownies Ice Cream Sandwiches. Super fun and super yum. Telling you readers, you MUST try these BROWNIE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES.

Another fun twist on brownies is to add some crunches on the brownies without using any nuts but ramen noodles. I crushed some ramen noodles on top of the brownies while baking them and it gave a beautiful addictive texture to the brownies. So, here is the RAMEN NOODLES BROWNIES, My readers.

Some prefer to enjoy their brownies with a swig of milk, some like it a tad warmed up topped with vanilla ice-cream and some like it as-is with coffee. And, that’s me. A generous square of a dark brownie with a steaming cup of black coffee is all I need. If the idea that a little dark chocolate every day keeps you happy, these babies could be your therapy at a hand’s reach.

Oh! Brownies were first developed in the USA. So here we go – It’s an all American dessert.

Here is how I make them and yes, the better the quality of dark chocolate you use, the better the result


  • Soft butter, for greasing the pan
  • Flour, for dusting the buttered pan
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour/maida
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar/ white sugar
  • 1/2 cup room temp butter
  • 2 tablespoons water or dark coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F/175 degree C
  • Butter and flour an 8 inch pan
  • Melt butter in a pan.
  • Mix in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder.
  • Spread batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 25/30 minutes

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.

  1. Hi Aish!
    I remember you asked me for some feedback about 10 days or so ago. I tried to find an e-mail or contact form I could send it to, but could not and don’t really want to do it in a public post. (You can delete this one afterwards if you like). I think a contact form or e-mail on the blog would be a good thing, and also in your About profile, if you could give your name, that would be great. I know it only because of Facebook.
    Anyway, if you can e-mail me at info@lifeoutofbounds.com, I can then e-mail you back with feedback.
    Love your work, though, and your recipes.
