Congo Bar


Alhamdulillah ... I finally made the most mentioned about 'Congo Bar'. Every comments that I heard or read saying that it is easy to make. I really wanted to put my hand into it. Finally with Atikah's (my eldest) help, we finally made it. And .... yes! It is so simple to make and very smooth and fast process.

Let's do it.

Resipi asal: Azlita Masam Manis
My ingredients
2 3/4 cups multipurpose flour
1 3/4 cups brown sugar (the original recipe calls for 320gm, but I reduced it)
150gm butter (room temperature)
3 eggs
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
250gm chocolate chips (I did not measure, it depends on how many you like it)
Any kinds of tree nuts (almond, hazel, walnut)

Making it.
1. Whisk the butter and sugar together till the butter blend.
2. Add egg one by one.
3. In another bowl, prepare the dry ingredients. Sift multipurpose flour, baking powder and salt together.
4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Mix well.
5. Add the chocolate chips and nuts. I used the strip almond.
6. I add some into the mixture and spare some to spread onto the mixture before baking.
7. Bake in 170 degree oven for 30 minutes (my oven requires 40 minutes).

Insha Allah.... you will get a satisfying result.
