I have a brownie recipe. The first time I tried them they turned out great but had a strong taste of chocolate and vanilla extract. I halved the cocoa powder and vanilla essence required to reduce the flavour as I prefer mild chocolatey taste but the brownies were no longer fudgy. Shall I add some flour when removing cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Here's the recipe:
1 cup butter (melted and cooled)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons white sugar
4 large eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chopped chocolate
- In a large bowl combine melted butter, oil, and both sugars.
- Add the eggs, vanilla and salt then whisk for about one minute.
- Over the same bowl sift in the flour and cocoa powder. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold the chocolate chunks.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes at 170'C
