Easy Nutella Brownies

It’s been a month (and a week) since my last post. I can explain…I had my eyes lasered (PRK)! Woohoo!! I don’t need to wear glasses or contact lenses anymore. Although, I do still get up in the morning and look for my glasses hahaha! It’s been a habit for 14 years, it’s hard to get rid of! πŸ˜›

If you had been following my instagram, I’ve been posting Nutella Brownies the past few days and I’d really like to share it with you. πŸ™‚

My husband is crazy about Nutella. We have a jar in the fridge almost always…when we don’t, we go to Prizemart to buy another jar. He likes to get a spoon from the kitchen, smile at me and head to the fridge to get a spoonful of Nutella.

A few months ago, we chatted on Skype and I joked about making dessert for him when I get home. It was not the weekend, so IΒ  thought he knew I was joking. When I sensed that he was really hoping for some dessert, I quickly searched for a quick Nutella recipe.:)

Last Thursday, one of my childhood friends requested me to bake some for his chillax birthday get-together. We’ve been friends for almost 2 decades and he knows I love him to bits which is why I made him 3 different types of brownies. I made him the original 3-ingredient Nutella Brownies, a batch with almonds and another batch with chopped dark chocolate. Yes, it’s nice to have me as a friend, don’t you think? πŸ˜›

Making these were so easy! The hardest part was to wait while it was baking in the oven! Here are the three ingredients; Nutella, egg and all-purpose or plain flour. I followed her note about making sure my measuring cup had oil all around so I wouldn’t have difficulties measuring and removing the Nutella.

Nutella Brownies: Ingredients

I first pre-heated theΒ ovenΒ to 180C then cracked the egg into a mixing bowl.

Nutella Brownies: Egg

Next, I added the half-cup of Nutella.

Nutella Brownies: Egg and Nutella

I mixed them together with a fork because using a fork is the way to go — it’s a lot easier than the whisk. Yup, I am serious.

Nutella Brownies: Egg + Nutella

When the Nutella and the egg were mixed (yes, with a fork!), I added 5 tablespoons of plain flour. I have tried it with all-purpose flour and it worked very well too! Actually, I did not know the difference (or am I just not…a very experienced “baker”?? Errrr…).

Nutella Brownies: Flour

It will seem that there’s too much flour at first but don’t worry, it will all be alright in the end! C’mon…keep mixing!

Nutella Brownies: Mixture

I added the chopped almonds and dark chocolate after the basic steps were done. πŸ™‚ Of course I could have made them as toppings but my mind was fried! Why didn’t I think of that???

Nutella Brownies: Almonds

Nutella Brownies: Dark Chocolate

When I first made these, I used a 12oz bakeware. I poured the mixture into that and baked it for 30 minutes at 180C. It was actually 15 + 5 + 5 + 5 minutes, those five minutes were my checkpoints to see whether it’s done. I baked it again using this and 30 minutes was still my time. I liked the toasted parts at the sides.

Nutella Brownies: Brownies

This past week, I used a pastry bag to aid me in filling the pan. I used a mini-muffin pan and when it’s 3/4 full, I baked it for 12 minutes 10 minutes while if it was 90-100% full, I baked it for 13-14 minutes 11-12 minutes. [UPDATE: I’ve noticed that reducing the baking time by 2 minutes (before, it was 12-14 minutes), the brownies were more moist.]

Tada! That easy! πŸ™‚ My husband and friends’ tummies were very, very, VERY happy! πŸ˜€
