Congo Bars & VSC

7 Dec

Last Saturday I have decided to try out baking Congo Bars. I saw them on Kitchen Guardian’s instagram.

But mine turned out to be more cakey then what I imagined them to be:

Congo Bar

I made them using the recipe from Bisous À Toi here.

Ingredients
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
150g butter, softened
320g light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
320g chocolate chips

I was reading through Bakerella’s and I have decided to mix the ingredients by hand. Probably why mine was cakey.

Methods
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
Stir brown sugar into softened butter in another large bowl until butter disappears. You can use the back of your spoon to help incorporate the two together.
Add eggs one at a time to butter mixture and stir well after each egg.
Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts. Mix well.
Add dry flour mixture and stir until well combined.

Mine is also a little taller cause I used 10 x 10 pan instead of the 13 x 9 recommended pan. hee. I was lazy to dig and find the 13 x 9 pan. I like how this congo bars taste like cookies. Indeed it is true! Brownie + cookie! Will try to do it again using mixer and 13 x 9 pan. Want mine to be a little similar to Kitchen Guardian’s! (here, here, here, here)  Not satisfied with mine that’s why I didn’t bother to take more pictures.

Told you my family (or rather my mum) loves Victoria Sandwich Cake. She made them again & again.

For my aunt’s and uncle’s anniversary:
