How was your weekend? Did you enjoy the first days of fall? We certainly did. Beautiful weather and such chilly mornings, I had to beg the kiddos to get out of their comfy beds! Usually, they are up and ready to start the day without any nagging. Not this weekend.
My Hubby and I, on the other hand, enjoyed our morning coffee on the patio trying to catch the warmth of the rising sun. I love those moments.
Anyways, another Monday rolled in and it’s time for a brownie recipe. This week I decided to feature a recipe I tried for the first time last year. I remember very clearly that it was a hit. I was looking forward to making these brownies again. I am talking about cocoa brownies from Smitten Kitchen, adapted from “Bittersweet” by Alice Medrich.
The cocoa flavor really comes through. The better cocoa you use, the better these will be. In my opinion, they do not need any frosting or even dusting with powdered sugar. Plain cocoa that’s truly satisfying. Cut them in triangles instead of usual squares.
These brownies are fudgy and soft. They melt in your mouth! But they do not have the crackly top I like. The cocoa flavor is very noticeable and it didn’t make me miss the actual chocolate in them. You really need to let them cool completely, or even refrigerate to cold, to get clean cuts. I had to actually wipe my knife before cuts.
