Nutella and pecans brownies

Everybody who knows me, know that  I love, love, LOVE Nutella, and not just on bread or croissant or on a warn waffle where the Nutella warms up and...hmmm let's not go there!!! I’m very happy to share with you today’s recipe for Nutella brownies, cause you know Nutella makes me happy!

As you can see these brownies are more cakey that fudgy and that's the way I like my brownies, but they are oh so delicious you will not mind at all!!

Nutella and pecans brownies

3 eggs
100 gr - 3/4 cup of chopped dark or milk chocolate
100 gr - 3/4 cup of Nutella
150 gr - 10 tbsp of butter
100 gr - 3/4 cup  (less or more depending on your sweet tooth!!) of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
80 gr - 1/2 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder,  that's what makes it cake like, but you can omit it.
50 gr - 1/3 cup of chopped pecans

Preheat oven at 400F (200C)

Grease a 8x8 pan

Roast the pecans in a warm pan, keep an eye on them so they don't burn!!

In a bowl over a pan of simmering water (called bain-marie) melt the butter then add the Nutella, mix well. Take off the heat and add the chopped chocolate

In another bowl beat the eggs and sugar until white and frothy, add the chocolate mix the vanilla and the flour, sprinkle the pecans on top and gently mix.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 20/25 min.

When cool cut into squares and using a little bit of Nutella as glue decorate the brownies with a half pecan.

You will not regret making these they are scrumptious!!!
