These brownies are as yummy as they are quirky. The pepper and vodka add a welcome kick to the old chocolate and walnut brownies. They are also very easy to make. I haven’t made brownies for awhile and these were definitely the best way to start again. For this post I wanna try something different. Explaining the recipe in pictures and single sentences.
Have a great day! 🙂
Black Russian Brownies (makes 10-12)
115 g Butter
115 g Dark Chocolate, broken into pieces
1 Tsp Pepper, coarsely ground
250 g Castor Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
3 Tbsp Kahlùa or strongly brewed Coffee
3 Tbsp Vodka (no flavor)
150 g Flour
¼ Tsp Baking Powder
55 g Walnuts, chopped and slightly roasted
- Preheat the oven to 180º C and grease a 30 x 20 cm cake tin. Melt the chocolate, butter and pepper over a low flame and switch off as soon they melt. DO NOT BOIL. Mix and set aside.
- Beat together the eggs and sugar. Add in the vanilla essence, vodka and kahlùa to the chocolate mixture and mix it into the eggs.
- Sift in the flour and baking powder to the chocolate mixture. Carefully stir in the walnuts.
- Pour into the tin and bake for 20-25 minutes or until just firm to the touch. Once cooled cut into squares and enjoy!
