Steamed Brownies and Trouble Sleeping Story

Almost a week I don’t do blog writing things, this week I'm not filling well , I got trouble sleeping, and I need to break my back for couple of days.  I think I'm not working to hard at home, but this trouble sleeping always disturbing me lately, some of my friends was suggest me to drink drug, which could help me to take a sleep easily.  I have been consider it for a while, then I think, each drug having their own effect like addiction, I don’t want take a risk of that. So I decided to keeping this trouble sleeping until it go away by itself or till someone give me a good suggestion. 

Anyone reading my blog knows how to cure my trouble sleeping?


Jump to food topic, in my town we have bakery which focusing to make and sell brownies. The bakery specialty is a steamed brownies, and it’s very popular in my town. The difference between baked brownies is, the steamed one having much moist texture in every single layer than the baked one.
Making steamed brownies is kind of new for me. We have to be focus, careful and spare our time 

What you need: 

6 medium eggs
225g sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cake emulsifier
125g all-purpose flour
50gr chocolate powder
175ml vegetable oil
100g dark chocolate, melted
75ml chocolate sweetened condensed milk (SCM)
 
Covered 20cm pan with butter, Set a side.
Mix the melted dark cooking chocolate with vegetable oil.
Sift together flour, chocolate powder, and salt.
Whisk eggs, cake emulsifier and sugar until light and fluffy,
Add flour mixture and vanilla extract stir gently till combined.
Add vegetable oil on the batter, stir gently till combined.
Take 1/3 part of the batter, and mix it with chocolate sweetened condensed milk till combined, Set a side.
Divide the batter without SCM mixture in to two part.
Prepare steaming pot and fill up with water till half pan covered (don’t forget to cover the lid with fabric, so when it heat the water didn’t dripping in the batter. And don’t forget to make sure the base and the pot aren’t sloping because they could affect the shape of the brownies), heat the pot.
Pour the batter part 1 into pan, and place it on the steaming pot (the water should be boiling) and steamed for 10 minutes.
Then pour the SCM mixture above batter part 1, steamed for 10 minutes.
Last pour the remains batter (batter part 2) above SCM batter, steamed for 20 minutes.  Let it cool


Happy Enjoy...

Great recipe. Gorgeous brownies. I have wicked insomnia so not sure I can help. But some things that work from time to time are a hot bath, lavender room spray on your sheets, and for some reason hot chocolate with real milk and honey. That last one works when nothing else will. When I get really out of hand I use a mild sleeping pill for about 3 days till I am back on track. Hope that helps.

I have never heard of steamed brownies, but they sound wonderful. A great use of your time while you couldn't sleep! I'm a bit of an insomniac, and when I can't sleep I just get up and read.

I've never heard of steamed brownies, but they sure do look delicious! As for not sleeping....may I suggest warm milk? Believe it or not - there is something in warm milk that helps your body sleep! Best of luck!

I have never seen steamed brownies before. Does steaming change the texture at all? I imagine that they are so moist and delicious.

Note etc. said...

@Britne @ Shabbott's Habits_ well I think Steamed brownies only popular at my country. and basicly the texture is like cake but very moist and the outer layer little bit wet, not dry and crispy like baked brownies used to be :)

Mouthwatering steamed brownies Tya (can I call U that name).. Love them also.. but if you have sleep difficulty you may not eat them much cause it's so chocolate ^,^

I usually drink warm milk before sleep to have nice quality of sleep :) hope it works for U too..

I love the powdered sugar heart on top and I would think that steaming makes the brownies very soft and tender. Nice. With regard to the sleeping problem, I find that when I have trouble sleeping it's usually because something is bothering me but I don't always realize it. Sometimes you have to really think about it. If not, I find that if I get up for a while and work on the computer or read for a little while I get sleepy again. Good luck.

Maggie said...

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the
easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they
plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
