Brownies with olive oil
It's a very simple recipe but it's really divine!!!
This recipe belongs to Mr Stelios Parliaros, I just reduced the quantity of the sugar from 200gr to 160gr for my chinese friends...
200 gr. semi-sweet chocolate chips
160 gr. olive oil
160 gr. sugar
120 gr. flour for all purpose
80 gr. almonds or walnuts (chopped)
Melt chocolate in a double boiler, add olive oil and mix. Beat the eggs with the sugar very well. Pour the mixture of chocolate and olive oil in the beaten eggs and stir. Add flour and chopped almonds or walnuts. Pour the mixture in a form with diameter 20-22cm and bake in a preheated oven 160°C/300F for 25 minutes (if you bake longer it will get dry.)
You can preserve it out of the fridge, in room temperature. If desired, you may warm slightly before serve.
You may accompany excellent with ice cream. If you wish, you can leave out almonds or walnuts.
