It's been a while since I've made brownies. And just to clarify, they are not on my list of overly-chocolaty-things (that spot is reserved exclusively for chocolate on chocolate cake), so no worries, brownies will still make a cameo appearance here from time to time. *I wonder how many people are ready to hit me over the head with their whisks for not liking double chocolate cake?* It will all be explained when I write about my sister's birthday cake... there is a reason for the implied craziness, I do promise. :D
So far, I have loved all of Dorie's brownies, this is the first one that fell a bit short of my expectations. The name sounds so interesting...honey, in a brownie?! But, as many of the other TWD bakers pointed out, you really need to use a high quality honey in this particular recipe. I didn't. Honey takes center stage, while the chocolate has more of a supporting role. And while the little bear-shaped bottle is adorable and delicious on waffles and pancakes, it's far too sweet for these brownies. The only other issue that I had was the cakiness. These were not quite fudgy enough for me. I like it to be mandatory that one
