Oh me, oh my! These brownies were a delight. A great addition to our evening of Agricola. Which -- seriously is a great game.
These rich brownies had a nice crunchy top and a moist center. They were great topped with strawberries and whipped cream.
Brownies and Strawberries
Brownie recipe adapted from A Cozy Kitchen
3/4 C sugar (I used just slightly less)
1/3 C whole wheat flour
1/3 C white wheat flour (or all-purpose)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 T butter
3/4 C dark chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Begin by combining the chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
I used dark chocolate chips... because dark chocolate is excellent. And, has antioxidants. Fights off those free radicals -- and, makes me feel like these are "healthy".
Melt the butter and chocolate chips together ... slowly! Microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval. Meanwhile mix together the dry ingredients in a second bowl.
When the chocolate butter mixture is melted, pour in with the flour mix.
Then, add the eggs and vanilla.
Mix until well blended.
Pour brownies in a lightly greased 8x8 inch glass baking dish.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. A toothpick should come out mostly clean... but, do not over bake the brownies as they will get dry!!
Allow the brownies to cool down; then slice and serve.
Slice up a few strawberries. If desired, mash them 1-2 times with a potato masher and sprinkle with 1 tsp or less of sugar. Serve atop brownies, alongside a scoop of ice cream or freshly whipped cream.
