Crusty brownies or cake

In case if you like very much brownies or anything with pie crust  you will love this recipe.

I `invented` it for a friend who loves both of the above, I think or I was under this impression. You know how with men one cannot ever be sure.

I made the brownies for a football night for the boys, women were not invited uhuu , so I was not there to taste them and get the feedback personally.

And I baked the brownies again as a smaller cake, because we did not have to have so much sweets laying around the house.



But I present you the Original crowd recipe.


300 gr. digestive or whole wheat cookies 

100 gr. butter


Brownie batter:

4 eggs

1 cup of sugar

300 gr. dark chocolate melted over water bath

2 cups of flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tbsp. instant coffee in 50 ml. hot water



So you might think this is crazy but, try it out.

Lay a big baking tray with paper.

Whizz the cookies with the butter or do it by hand. Lay the mix on the baking paper evenly and bake in a preheated oven for about 10 min.  170 C.

In the very same time with a hand mixer or processor beat the eggs with the sugar until pale. Add sugar and butter, then molten chocolate, then add gradually the flour mixed in with the baking powder. Pour in the instant coffee and mix well.

Take the crust out of the oven.

Put over it the brownie mix and smooth if necessary.

Toss in the oven for another 20 min.


If you are lucky you are going to have the molten chocolate cake effect, if not do not worry.




The main point is that you try to do something from scratch.

I’m very much disturbed myself, not a great eater, but a decent cook, not to be fool of myself.

Trust me on this – cook, eat healthy you would not regret it.

Homemade is homemade.

I know you can buy everything, but the look on people`s faces……

Make an effort do not be lazy ass.

Cheers and I’m waiting to hear from you..
