Very dark banana brownies

I have to warn you. If you're one of those people who likes sweet to death brownies, stop reading here. Now, if you're like me and love real chocolate, the true stuff, no milk, no sugar,  these are your brownies.

It had snowed, it was cold and I wasn't in my best mood... something had to be done about it... chocolate and bananas were there to save the day.

 


Sweet banana, intense chocolate... welcome to heaven (yes, that thing by the bananas is snow)



 


6 ounces unsweetened chocolate chopped
6 ounces butter cut into cubes
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 bananas, very ripe, cut into little chunks
1 cup flour
3 eggs
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 F
In a bowl, melt butter and chocolate in the microwave (or in a double boiler). To avoid burning the chocolate, heat the mixture in intervals of 30 seconds and mix well after each heating. Set aside to cool. In a separate bowl mix eggs, vanilla and sugar. Slowly add the melted chocolate into the egg mixture while mixing well. Stir in the chopped banana. Pour the batter in a well buttered pan and bake for 30 min, until the brownie is set but looks slightly giggly in the center or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs. Let cool and cut into squares.


The bitterness of the chocolate and the sweetness of the banana are the perfect combination for a cold afternoon, or morning, or evening. They are just great.

Ai, ja queda bo el plàtan? Jo és que no li acabo de trobar el què... No sé, potser és massa dolç. Hauré de tastar-lo, així que ja saps..

Què és aixó????? Sembla fet expressament per mi!!! Sóc addicte a la xocolata negra i aquest brownie el faig segur!!!
Hauriem de crear un grup d'addictes a la xoco... i publicar-hi tot de receptes de super xocolata!!!
Cientificament està comprovat que la xocolata negra és un antidepressiu molt bó!!!

Que fort!!! Jo també he fet coulant aquest cap de setmana, amb una crema anglesa per acompanyar... Encara no he tingut temps de penjar la recepta ja que la setmana que ve tinc parcials i estic una mica ocupada...
En fi, que sols vaig tindre temps de fer una foto (no massa bona, per cert) ja que quan els vaig treure van volar!!!
M'encanta la idea de fer una recepte totes dues o totes les catalanetes bloggeres!!!
Ens posem d'acord i... we put our Catalan hands around the world in the dough...
Un petonet!!!!
