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.

  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

The scientific name for Peach resin is Prunus Persica which is resin secreted from the Peach tree and form like crystals which are stuck to the tree.  Originated from China, the composition of peach resin is collagen, amino acids.  The rich collagen helps to improve the complexion, nourishes and helps to prevent dryness of the skin.  It also helps to improve bowel movement.  In short, this is an inexpensive substitute to the highly expensive birds nest.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
