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.

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

    1. So if you make them, you'll have to eat them all by yourself..Yes we must make sure that there are 'guinea pigs' around whenever we try out new recipes!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
