Best brownies!

January 2, 2009 at 1:17 am 2 comments


As part of our toast to the New Year, I made some brownies for dessert from Jeanne Kelley‘s new book, Blue Eggs and Yellow Tomatoes: Recipes from a Modern Kitchen Garden. They were amazing and even survived the translation to gluten-free that happens with much of my baking. It was a simple recipe with great ingredients: bittersweet chocolate, real butter, sugar, eggs. I loved that I mixed it all up in the same pot that I melted the chocolate in. So easy and good!

10 oz chocolate melted together with 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of butter. Stir in 1 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon of vanilla (I used some authentic Mexican vanilla my in-laws brought as a gift from their recent holiday – what a treat!). Whisk in 3 eggs. Stir in 3/4 cup flour and 1 cup of walnuts. Pour into a greased 9″ square pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Yummy!

Note: For a gluten-free version, substitute Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Flour for the wheat flour.
