Flourless Brownies

brownies

Since it`s passover, and I was asked to bring a flourless dessert to some Seder, I thought that brownies would be the perfect dessert. I was trying to find a recipe that did not include matzo meal or other flour substitute.  I found this recipe, by the lovely Nigella Lawson, that included ground nuts – just what I was looking for.

This recipe is an perfect replacement for the ordinary brownies, and also have a great nutty flavor. Also, it is a one bowl recipe, a thing that makes it just perfect. With these few ingredients, you get a very, very rich result.

To make the brownies look perfect after cutting them, I suggest, as I do with all brownies recipes, to put them in the fridge for at least two hours, and only when chilled, cut then into squares. Though it is not suggested in the recipe, I stored the brownies in the fridge, and served them just out from the fridge.

Fudge Brownies with Walnuts and White Chocolate

In Chocolate, Desserts on September 14, 2008 at 6:34 pm

This brownies recipe is one of the best that I`ve ever made, the greatest thing about it is that you can play with it and add or omit whatever you like, and still get a great brownie. To my opinion, you can reduce the sugar, and use only one cup (that is, if you are using white chocolate, that adds a lot of sweetness). You can also add chocolate chips, pecans, a bit of alcohol (Irish cream, Frangelico…) or whatever you have at home.

If you wish that your brownies will have a clean look, and that applies especially to the fudgey ones, make sure to freeze the brownies after you bake them, and them cut them with a very sharp knife. Even if you are tight in time, never cut brownies while still hot, or you will get a crumbly mess.

Supernatural Brownies

In Chocolate, Desserts on July 21, 2008 at 6:38 pm

I love brownies, and I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t love them.
I’m always looking for new brownie recipes in all of my books and all over the internet. But at the end of the day, I always come back to this recipe.

These brownies by Nick Malgieri made a name of themselves, and for a good reason. They are very simple to make, but there is only one condition for making then right- don’t dry them in the oven! (Or else you will get a great chocolate cake, but not brownies). The original recipe calls for 35-40 minutes of baking, but from my experience, that’s way too much. I suggest you start checking on them after 12-15 minutes, and decide if their done.

Oh, and if you get invited to someone and their asking you to get something sweet, bake these, they make a such great impression (for me, anyhow).
