I had actually forgotten to turn down the temperature knob after setting it at highest when I preheated the oven.
But I still managed to save 6-7 of them from the sides and for the rest I scraped off the darkened tops. It wasn't as soft as it should be because instead of baking at lesser temperature for longer duration they were baked for shorter period at high temperature. Here is the pic of the 'saved' ones -
I'm definitely going to be making these again coz if they can taste this good the way I baked them, they would taste heavenly if baked properly. Here goes the recipe for those wanna try-
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 1/4 cups light brown sugar (powdered)
- 2 2/3 cups plain flour
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chunks
- 1 cup chopped walnuts; optional
- Preheat oven to 180C.
- Grease a 13×9 inch baking pan or line the pan with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix together oil and brown sugar. Then add the eggs one at a time and beat until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients and then add them to the brown sugar mixture. Mix well.
- Stir in chocolate chunks & walnuts, if using.
- Spread batter into prepared baking pan. Batter will be thick!
- Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut into squares as desired.
- I used only 2 cups sugar and still found it to be a bit too sweet.
- Since I didn't have brown sugar, I used normal sugar and added 2-3 tbsps of cocoa powder.
- I used raisins instead of walnuts and chocolate chunks since I didn't have any of both.
