It’s the weekend AGAIN! How fast did that happen? And it turns out we have absolutely no sweets in our home. Not one cookie or anything. I didn’t want the hubs to go without so baking seemed like a good idea until I realized we didn’t have any butter. Not to fret, I chose to bake something vegan (and on the healthy side). I had just enough chocolate to make this recipe and waaaaay back in one of my kitchen cupboards I found a can of pumpkin puree. The Bakery is OPEN! These brownies baked up and sliced perfectly. The pumpkin delivered on the moistness.
Once I had eaten one of these Pumpkin Brownies I was thinking that you could probably eat them for breakfast without feeling guilty. They are filling and very nutritious for a brownie! And… if you were in a hurry…I’m just sayin’… why not?
This is not an overly sweet brownie but you could add another ¼ cup of sugar if you like a traditionally sweeter brownie.
If there’s one thing I love about blogging it’s that I can post whatever type of recipe I want without someone telling me otherwise. Here is yet another brownie recipe that I have made countless times. Out of the oven they might not look like anything special but once you try one, I’m sure you’ll be sold! I have modified the ingredients and method from the original recipe to tweak it just to my liking. Super chocolaty, fudgy and ever so slightly gooey. You might think these brownies are not fully cooked through but they are! On top of an ice cream sundae or just pop them in your mouth…don’t expect these little gems to last long. Continue reading
Do I make too many Brownie recipes?
I would say that most people love brownies. What’s not to love? I have baked a lot of brownies in my day and can easily say that not all brownies are created equal. Not by a long shot. Each recipe has it’s own personality to suit whatever mood you may be in. . The Mississippi Mud Brownie is moist, rich and a definite crowd pleaser. No shortage of chocolate in this recipe. Fortunately for you, it’s baked in a 9 x13″ pan so there’s plenty to go around or just keep for yourself. Continue reading
This brownie recipe was given to me by a friend about ten years ago. It was called “Chocolate Truffle Brownies”. Since then we changed the name to “Black Velvet Brownies”. One bite and you will understand the name change. So dark, smooth and extremely chocolaty, yet light. Be sure to make the frosting to get the full effect of Black Velvet! Slices very easily and pops into your mouth without any difficulty whatsoever. The entire pan may easily vanish in no time at all. Continue reading
I made this recipe for someone who suffers from Acid Reflux and who cannot tolerate a host of favourite foods. The long list of ingredients may appear a bit daunting but the loaf does come together fairly easily. I will say that this loaf is super moist and not overly sweet. The entire loaf was gone in minutes (probably seconds). Next time I will be sure to make 2 loaves. This recipe would make an excellent weekend breakfast addition or any time, really. If you bake it, they will eat it. Continue reading
