Brownies make a good dessert and snack. It is rich, moist, and undeniably delicious. One thing that I like most about every brownies recipe is the fact that they’re all easy and quick to prepare.
This brownies recipe is simple and straightforward; I added a topping of chopped cashews because I remember enjoying this kind of brownies in the Philippines. It brings back the good old flavor of the snack that I always enjoy and the fun memories associated with it.
Making your own brownies — as I mentioned– should be real easy. It will all depend on the brownies recipe that you are following. For example, if you like dark chocolate, then this brownies recipe is for you. However, feel free to use the type of cocoa powder that you like. Use sweet cocoa if you prefer your brownies sweeter.
Moist brownies can be achieved by adding canola oil instead of butter, or at least half oil and half butter so that you will still have that rich buttery flavor while enjoying moist brownies. This brownies recipe makes use of both oil and butter.
