This morning, I was awoken by a phone call. My dear friend V asked me out for breakfast. It feels good to bring my little gal along as this week, she will be off from school till Friday.
Being an e-learning week, she gets to do her homework at home. Though a little worrying to stay home during an exam period but I guess a little relax environment won’t affect her performance much.
Having her home alone at home is really peaceful. Besides singing and dancing around the house when she is awesome mood, she is basically a very happy girl and quiet as well.
Being home alone with my boy is very different, the radio will be constantly turned on with his head banging music that sometime gives me headache. Or he will go round the house with his ping pong ball and bat. tick tock tick tock all day long or the soccer ball is being dribbled round the house.
Being home alone with both kids is another different feel. My girl will tend to wince alot and my son will like to bicker with her but the best moment is to see them playing very well with each other. My son will initiate a game of ping pong over my two coffee tables (now you know why I have two in my house if you visited my home).
So today, with a peaceful mind and a relaxing afternoon, we went about baking a brownie since daddy dearest loves brownie. Chose this recipe from Sweetness again, Mom's Fudge Brownie.
Definitely nice to end the day with a scoop of ice cream over warm brownie after dinner.
Note: I overbaked it again this time round. I will cut 5 mins from the baking time next round.
What you need:
222g unsalted butter
116g unsweetened chocolate (use the best you can find)
200g castor sugar
190g plain flour
4 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
168g pecan, coarsely chopped
Melt butter and chocolate using a double boiler. Transfer into mixing bowl.
Using a whisk attachment, whisk the sugar with the chocolate mixture while it is still hot.
In 4 alternating batches, add the flour and eggs into the chocolate mixture. Whisk well after each addition.
Add in vanilla and pecans. Stir well and pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 20 - 25 mins.
