Sweet, fudgy chocolate Guinness stout brownies with chocolate drizzle, the perfect way to end your St.Patrick’s day celebrations.
Good morning friends, how was your weekend. Did you remember too “Spring Ahead” or did you forget? I remembered that is was daylight savings but then when I woke up later than normal I was a little confused.
Wednesday is St. Patrick’s day and there are a lot of great recipes out there to celebrate with, savory and sweet as well. One of my absolute favorites are Chocolate-Guiness Stout Brownies from Bon Appetit magazine. This recipe is easy and delicious; the brownies are dense, moist, and fudgy, more like a baked fudge than a regular brownie and the stout gives a little bit of a nutty flavor and the coffee makes the chocolate more rich.
Chocolate Guiness Stout Brownies
Recipe from Bon Appetit
1/2 cup of Guiness Stout or chocolate Stout
1/4 cup strong coffee(my addition)
12 oz. chocolate, semisweet, bittersweet or a combination
1 cup butter
11/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 x 9 baking pan with foil and cooking spray. In a medium saucepan bring stout and coffee to a boil and reduce to 1/4 cup.
In a double boiler or a bowl set over a pan of simmering water melt the chocolate and the butter and stir until smooth. Set aside to cool a little.
Whisk eggs, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl to blend. Then add the chocolate and the stout/coffee mixture. Once smooth, fold in the flour and the salt. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs attached.
Cool on wire rack then enjoy.
Note: The original recipe does not include coffee, I add it because I think it makes the brownies taste richer. Also, the original had a chocolate stout glaze/frosting. I just drizzled mine with a little melted chocolate. You can obviously do whatever you like.
I hope that you have a great day! Enjoy!
NOTE: This is a repost from one of my old blogs Once Upon a Chocolate Life where I occasionally shared chocolate recipes and adventures. As it wasn’t well read because I never promised it I decided to share some of my favorite recipes here.
One last thing, a quote for the day!
