Salted Brownies

I made another favorite of my Dearest Husband's Brownies for Valentines Day, this time I sprinkled some salt on the cake batter to give a great taste to the brownies but before going to recipe, I would like to share a poem that I wrote many years back. This is an unique poem it's a Tamil poem written in English, I apologize to those who can't understand but its all about love. It may seem funny because I can't read or write in Tamil but I wrote this 10 years ago out of love, nothing planned, all of sudden I had the inspiration to write.

Etho Oru Vegathil Unai Kanden
Mayanggi Poi Nindren
Nee Yennidam Varavillai
Naanum Unnai Vidavillai

Nee Yen Munnil
Nee Yen Kannil
Nee Yen Kanavil
Nee Yen Manathil

Ninaikavum Mudiyamal
Marakavum Mudiyamal Thavikiren
Nee Varuvaaya
Unnai Tharuvaaya
Naan Kaathirupen

How is my poem? Okay now without wasting anymore time, let me share the recipe for today;

1 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
1/2 cup of white chocolate (chopped)
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup of soft brown sugar
3 large eggs beaten
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of all purpose flour
1/4 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 tsp of salt

Melt butter and white chocolate on double boiling, remove from the water bath add cocoa powder, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Mix everything well and fold in flour and pour on a buttered square or rectangle cake pan. Finally add the salt over the batter, using a stick swirl the salt over the batter. 

Bake this mixture for 35 minutes at 150 to 170 Degree brownies should not be baked like cake it should be slightly wet so 35 minutes will be accurate, once the brownies bake let it cool before cutting and serving it. My husband prefers to have it warm and sometimes with vanilla ice-cream.

Dust with cocoa powder before serving or plain depending on your preference

Do try and let me know how was it!
