Bailey's Irish Cream Brownies

I had a little Bailey's lying around, so decide to make some Irish cream brownies. These were really good, not too dense like brownies not too light like cake, it was in between, and I loved them.

Ingredients
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup bittersweet or dark chocolate chips
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
A pinch of salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup Bailey's Irish cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Getting started heat the butter in a saucepan and while it starts melting...
Drop in the beautiful chocolate chips...
And stir them around till they dissolve... this is paradise in a saucepan. 
Remove from heat and keep it aside to cool down a bit.
Now, sieve the all purpose flour (which is basically maida and baking powder) and baking soda into a container. Add the salt too.
Drop in the cocoa powder...
Now add the coffee powder...
Close the container, and give the whole thing a nice shake. This is the easy way to mix dry ingredients, just take everything in a container with a lid and then vigorously shake it so everything forms a coherent mix.
Now that the chocolate has cooled down, pour the contents into a bigger mixing bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
Add the sugar... and give it a mix.
The vanilla essence goes in next...
This is the Bailey's that was lying around... drink some as you bake.
Measure 1/3 cup...  
Add it to the bowl and beat again. 
At this point, stop using any electric beater and stick to folding the flour in with a spoon. Add batches of flour and gently fold it into the mixture. Now would be a good time to light the oven too, once the batter is ready.
Grease and flour a cake pan...
Pour the batter into the pan and stick it in the oven till...
A knife or a toothpick inserted comes out with little clumps of the brownie sticking to it.
Here they are, just out of the oven...
Check them out... a nice squishy and dense interior coupled with a flaky crust.
Store them in an airtight container... these were wonderful. I loved the taste of bailey's with each bite...

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
