Okay, i know what you’re thinking – Finally a recipe post 😛
Came across this recipe when i was in class. Sorry i was just really hungry at that time, don’t blame me! After seeing the pictures and recipe on Bakerella, how can i not bake this, right?
Recipe from Bakerella
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 lb. light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (i used vanilla beans)
11.5 ounce package milk chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Sift flour, baking powder and salt together.
Then cream the butter and brown sugar together. My little cousin was with me. She looked at the bowl, took a quick whiff and went “Mmmmm. Smells like milk. Bali milk.”
I was like what?! Haha, apparently the milk she had in Bali smelt like butter and brown sugar.
Add in the eggs one by one.
Nice and creamy batter.
Add vanilla essence (or beans like i did)
Now add lots and lots of chocolate chips. Didn’t measure the chocolate chips here. I just dumped as much as i want in 😛
Fold that in!
Line your pan (if im not wrong the one i used was 11″ x 11″) and spread that batter!
Bake at 350F for 30mins. I’m guilty for leaving it in the oven for a little too long. I was having dinner and it almost slipped my mind! That explains the over-browning and cracks at the edges.
And again, i’m guilty for not letting it cool completely before slicing. Whoops. So the chocolate chips kinda got mushed into the rest of the congo bars. Chronicles of a lazy baker 😮
Look at the sides, get what i mean? Haha, was good, anyhow 🙂
Packed some for my friends too. I think its best eaten when cooled, its chewier that way.
Off to wash up and grab some brunch!
Au Revoir 🙂
