Easy Brownies with AMC Cookware

Pin It

The more I use my AMC Cookware, the more I love how fuss-free it makes my cooking.  Nowadays I hardly use my non-stick pans or my electricity-guzzling oven or even my regular pressure cooker. 

Recently, I decided to bake a batch of brownies using the AMC flat pan and Navigenio hotplate.  It was very easy and the brownies were beautifully baked in less the usual time it takes in a regular oven or even a toaster oven.  There is no pre-heating required.

Rich, moist and fudgy

Easy Brownies with AMC Cookware

60g unsweetened cocoa powder or just under 3/4 cup (I use Van Houten)
120g butter / half a chunk, melted

140g castor sugar or 2/3 cup
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs, room temperature

130ml or 1/2 cup fresh milk
4 tbspn plain yogurt
1tsp vanilla extract

100g or 3/4 cup plain flour, sifted
1/2 tsp baking powder, sifted
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg powder

50g chopped walnuts

1.  Line a 24cm AMC shallow flat roaster and grease the baking paper.

2.  Mix A in a mixing bowl or AMC combi bowl until well dissolved.  Add in all the B, C, and D ingredients and mix well with a whisk.  The mixture should be silky thick and pourable.  Make sure there are no lumps.  Add 1-2 tbspn of milk if the mixture is too thick.  Stir in the chopped walnuts.

3.  Pour into the greased pan and level with a spatula.  Cover, set the audiotherm to Meat window and slow bake at heat no.2.  This will take about 20-25minutes.

Place the pan on the hotplate and slow bake. 
Use the audiotherm to monitor the heat and beep when
the heat has reached Meat window.

4.  Once the audiotherm beeps, set the pan over a coaster, remove the cover and upturn the hotplate over the top of the pan and bake on heat no.2 for 8 minutes.  Once the 8 min is up, remove from hotplate, cover and leave for another 10min.

The indispensable Navigenio hotplate

Set the pan on a coaster, upturn the hotplate and bake on top for 8 min.

5.  Remove the cover, transfer the brownies (still on the greased paper) onto a wire rack and let cool for another 10min.  Serve warm or with a scoop of vanilla icecream.

  2. Esther, this AMC cookware is brilliant! So can bake cakes too? The brownies turned out lovely, nice smooth top. Mine always cracks.

    1. Hi PH, yes it can bake, grill, cook and steam. Following this recipe plus the cooking instruction, the brownies will turn out super moist and fudgey and does not crack.

  3. Great receipe how many degrees would it be in a normal oven?

  4. Hi Esther! I'm back!

    I like the AMC cookware that you are using but my kitchen is really full with the many kitchenware that I boight over the years! I need a bigger kitchen!

  5. Oooo that looks seriously fudgy!

  6. Hi Esther! I can imagine how good those brownies would be with some ice cream!

    1. Adeline, they were great with icecream especially with our weather here.

  7. Hi Esther,

    I have seen Alice baking her cake using Happy Pan and thought it was amazing. Your brownies baked by AMC cookware sounds brilliant too!


    1. I also have a happy pan but i find it too clunky. Sigh,,

  8. Esther , your brownies look sinful ! Seriously fudgy and chocolaty for sure :D

  9. Hi Esther,
    Your brownie looks so good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. AMC cookware sounds so versatile and user friendly!
    Have a lovely Sunday!

  10. Hi Esther,

    The brownies look tasty! I dont have AMC cookware yet so Im assuming normal oven will do with the same tasty result.

    1. Dran, thanks for dropping by. Yes, a normal oven would be fine of course. It will just take a bit more time, and watch out for the top in case it gets too dry.

  11. Hi Esther, can i just buy a 24cm AMC steamer pot? if so, how much?
