Guinness Stout Brownies



I chanced upon a recipe from Joanie for Guinness Stout Brownies and since I had all the ingredients at hand, I didn't hesitate to give it a try.  I had baked cakes and bread with Stout, so why not add a Brownie to the list....mmm






These crust cracked  Brownies are superb, moist and full of choco flavour but without the slightest  trace of stout at all, which means you can indulge in them at any time of the day!









Recipe for Guinness Stout Brownies (adapted from Joanie with slight modification)

Ingredients
  • 1 can of Guinness Stout
  • 12 oz chocolate, chopped
  • 8 oz butter
  • 1 cup/8 oz brown sugar (reduced from 1.1/2 cups)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 oz plain flour
  • 1/8  tsp salt
  • Icing sugar
Method
  1. Bring stout to the boil with 2 oz brown sugar, simmer till 3/4 cup.  Let cool.
  2. Sift the flour with the salt, set aside.
  3. Microwave chocolate and butter, stirring in between till melted.
  4. Whisk eggs with the balance of brown sugar in a mixing bowl till light and fluffy.  Whisk in the chocolate mixture and then the beer mixture.  Fold in the sifted flour and salt.  Mix well.
  5. Pour into a parchment lined 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C till surface begins to set, around 40 mins. and a skewer inserted comes out clean.

  4. Brownies are never popular in my household as the family are not into dense cakes ...they prefer fluffy cakes...I do like brownies though

Chocolate and vanilla are the best of friends and they complement extremely well with each other. This is a very easy recipe and these cuppies can be done in a pretty short time.  They are soft, moist and  with the two-tone butter frosting, they are seriously yummy!

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
