Procrastinate and Bake Double Chocolate Cookies

Sunday, 29 January 2012

Last Thursday afternoon I was pacing around the house trying to finish my very last portfolio, I hadn't even started and it was due in on Friday. For some reason I can't do any uni work until it is literally a moment before i have to travel to north London and hand it in the undergraduate office. So it got to 7pm, with 2 news stories and 1 feature in front of me i decided it was time to bake. I was stressed, flustered and pissed off so I decided to bake cookies using anything I could find in the cupboards and absolutely no guidelines. So i made double chocolate chip cookies with only 75g of dark chocolate...so what... Before i baked them i made sure the batter tasted like i wanted them to taste when crisp and crunchy!
Also, if you've never had one i suggest you go to your local turkish food center and buy some of their strong black coffee powder and make yourself a 'Gave'. They go well with these odd cookies.


The 'kind of' Recipe: 
Loads of butter
Loads of plain flour
Loads of cocoa powder
Loads of caster sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
Some granulated sugar
As much dark chocolate as you can find
A pinch of salt
A tiny bit of bicarbonate of soda
A tiny bit of baking powder
The 'kind of' Method

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees and flour baking trays 
  • Toss the butter and sugars into a large bowl and mix together till creamy. You should have an equal ratio of both, but i like to add more butter than sugar for a chewier texture. 
  • Slowly add the eggs to the mixture and mix mix mix
  • Add some flour and cocoa powder, to the point where you begin to produce a muddy textured dough. 
  • Throw in the bicarb, baking powder and salt (do not put more than a teaspoon of each of these)
  • Chop the chocolate, and with a wooden spoon, stir it in to the dough
  • With a tablespoon, spoon the dough onto the baking trays and space well apart
  • Bake for about 12 minutes
  • Eat with a strong coffee
