The Search For The Perfect Brownie Continues… King Arthur Flour Fudge Brownies

April 23, 2009 – Comments (25)

The search continues! So far, I’ve made my way through two hyped and popular brownie recipes with really great results – The Baked Brownie and Nick Malgieri’s Supernatural Brownie.

For this round, I’ve selected a brownie recipe from King Arthur Flour. If you haven’t already visited the KA site and blog, I most definitely recommend it. Both are fantastic resources for recipes and baking techniques, whether you’re a baking neophyte or an experienced baker.

Supernatural Brownies

April 4, 2009 – Comments (19)

Back in February, I began a quest for the ultimate brownie. At that time, I was totally motivated, so I gathered up a bunch of recipes to test, bought a truckload of chocolate and butter, and resolved to bake and post weekly. So, how are things progressing, you ask? Well, I haven’t gotten very far (I know…I’m totally lame). Posting weekly isn’t going to be realistic for me, but I promise going forward that you will NOT have to wait another 7 weeks for my next brownie writeup.

Lately, I’ve been really getting into the recipes of Baked: New Frontiers In Baking. I love how they’ve put their own modern spin to familiar, classic desserts, but even more I enjoyed reading about the authors’ journey to create and perfect their recipes and to open their storefront — it’s a real inspiration to an aspiring bakery owner like me.

This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie recipe, Caramel Crunch Bars, was selected by Whitney of What’s Left On The Table (please visit Whitney’s blog for the recipe).

This cookie is essentially a shortbread with morsels of chocolate (I used bittersweet) distributed throughout and topped with more chocolate and toffee candy (I hand-chopped Skor toffee bars).

The Baked Brownie (My Search For The Perfect Brownie Begins…)

February 17, 2009 – Comments (28)

Someone recently asked me what I would select as my all-time favorite sweet treat. Without hesitation, I responded — BROWNIES! In fact, my first childhood baking experience was making brownies with a Pillsbury box mix. Eventually, I graduated to homemade and haven’t looked back, especially as it is so easy to make brownies from scratch (most are one/two bowl = minimal dish washing = yippeee!!).

French Chocolate Brownies (TWD)

June 3, 2008 – Comments (29)

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie selection French Brownies comes to us courtesy of Di at Di’s Kitchen Notebook . Now, I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t appreciate the rich decadence and deep chocolatey flavor of a brownie. From these brownie aficianados, there are definite opinions on texture (cakey vs. fudgy), type of chocolate (semi-sweet vs bittersweet), and additions (choc chips, nuts, or no additions). Let’s start by saying that I am of the cakey, bittersweet, no addition camp.
