MEMORIES: November 2011, Foodbuzz Festival. Dinner hosted by Alexia Foods, with Chef Tyler Florence cooking a life demo. Marks that 1 year has gone by.
Martha's brownie recipe and whipped up a 1 bowl, okay maybe 2 bowls or was it 3 bowls brownie recipe. So easy, 1 bowl to melt chocolate, 1 bowl for the dry ingredients and 1 bow for the cream cheese mixture. Cleaning up was a breeze too, and you will have a treat under 1 1/2 hour (includes measuring, mixing, baking & cleaning up).
If you are due for spring cleaning, then this is perfect tea time snack. I changed the recipe slightly to suit my own palet, by using dark cocoa powder, 4oz semi-sweet chocolate, 2 oz bittersweet chocolate and added 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract. For the cream cheese, I added 1/4 cup mixture of lingonberry & raspberry jam mixed together with 1 tablespoon of Limoncello liquor (Oh! so..so good!!). Feel free to use any berry preserved or jam or just leave it plain, if you're not in a mood of swirling to create the marble effect. I am thinking this brownie will make a good pot luck dessert treat or as a Christmas gift too.
I think I'm easy to please, give me edible gifts or better yet, kitchen equipments (*hint*hint*..yoo..hoo, Santa?!?) and I will be a happy camper.
P/S: STAY TUNE! as there will be something exciting happening in December 2012. Vanessa @ Chokolat & Pimienta and I are collaborating together and this is a new adventure for me. While I'm not able to disclose much details just yet; here's the link to something awesome for all of you foodies.
