It’s funny how food goes in cycles, I haven’t roasted a chicken for so long, and now I’ve done two in two weeks, must be comfort food in the cold weather or something!
So onto something sweet in the form of Brownies.
These are from Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook. After much trial and error and trying many recipes these are the ones that my family likes best. They are chocolate-y, moist, melting delicious!
They are also not too strong on the chocolate front because they are made with bittersweet chocolate. I use half 70% cocoa solids dark chocolate and half 30% milk chocolate. So this brings it down to an average of 50% cocoa solids which is both dark and sweet enough for me. It actually took me many months a few years ago of trial and error to find the right balance.
Although saying I have found the recipe for my family I’d still like to try Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa ones too!
