Brownies, brownies, everywhere but not a drop to drink. Yay! My major in English lit. has been put to some use. Seriously though, it is a bad situation when you don't have any milk around and you have 2 varieties of brownies at your disposal. My first recipe as a Tuesdays with Dori member and I am so happy/excited/hyper about my new cookbook! Baking: From My Home to Yours is carried around with me as much as my cell phone ( except much bulkier and delightfully heavy ). I love it and I'm literally eating it up with my hungry eyes!
This weeks recipe was chosen by Jayma of the lovely Two Scientists Experimenting in the Kitchen blog. Hop over for the recipe!
Good things do come in small sizes! *cough, cough *. A brownie need not be statuesque and buxom in order to be pleasing to the senses. Again..I have something in my throat. These were perfect even though they were tiny and flat. Here comes that cough! :) What? Food teaches yet another life lesson. Pay attention young grasshoppers.
Even though this recipe fell flat. I would like to try it again because the few bits that I scraped together were wonderful! I made mine with Kahlua instead of vanilla and I substituted lemon zest for orange. Since making these cupcakes in July, I have been waiting for an excuse to make the buttercream frosting again using raspberries instead of strawberries. It went perfectly with the rich brownies. And when a recipe calls for a 'mini' muffin pan, they really mean Mini. I thought I had a relatively small muffin pan but it must be considered more of a medium? Damn vanity sizing has seeped into my 'happy place' baking world. These brownies were adorable and perfect for noshing on late at night when you can't sleep and you can't seem to tear yourself away from The Deadliest Catch.
