And another brownie recipe - can one get bored of brownies? Just realised in a moment of panic that friends are calling around after work tomorrow and we have nothing to offer them. The last of the spicy orange brownies have just disappeared! So with only 1/2 an hour to spare a quick recipe is needed and I know that brownies are a firm favourite with said friends.
This is what I'm about to do:
- Melt 100g butter with 100g chocolate and 150g muscovado sugar in a medium sized pan.
- Crush the seeds of 4 cardamom pods and stir into chocolate mixture.
- Beat in 2 eggs.
- Stir in 5og wholemeal flour, 25g ground almonds, a pinch of salt and 1 tsp rose water.
- Pour into a greased 9" x 7" pan and bake for 12 mins at 180C (gas 4).
CT couldn't resist a trial taste. His verdict not enough cardamom and couldn't taste the rose. Oh well you live and learn. Next time I'll use 6 cardamom pods and at least triple the amount of rose water. Really for the authentic eastern flavour I should have added pistachios instead of almonds, but I didn't have any of those. Next time I'll try harder!
