GF Brownies

Milling rice for GF browniesA couple weeks ago, my oven caught on fire.  After waiting two week for the new parts to arrive, I was eager to bake again!  Apparently too eager.  I decided to start by making brownies, and it went something like this:

Melt butter.  Mix in chocolate.  Mix in eggs and vanilla.  Add flour.  Pour into greased pan and place in oven.  (Is anyone else seeing the problem here yet?)  Set the timer and walk away.  Slap forehead.  Take the pan back out of the oven and scrape the contents back into the bowl.  Add sugar.  Now spread it in the pan again and bake.

I recommend you follow the actual instructions below, instead of doing it my way. 😉  If you use the real ingredients list, these turn out quite yummy.  If you make them without sugar, they’re probably only good for getting you out of baking in the future!

GF Brownies

2 sticks butter
3/4 c. cocoa
1-1/2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. brown rice flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease 13×9″ pan well.

Place butter in a microwavable bowl and microwave until melted.  Stir in chocolate.

Stir in sugar until well blended.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix again.  Stir in flour and mix thoroughly.  Spread in prepared pan.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out with semi-dry crumbs.  Cool thoroughly before cutting.

(Note: Brownies are best cut when completely cool.  They’re also a little prettier if you don’t scrape everything out of the greased pan and then back in before baking. 😉 )

Grain Mill Wagon Challenge Experience
The Grain Mill Wagon Challenge was just the push I needed to get back into whole grain baking, now that the grains I'm using all have to be gluten-free. The small grains adapter, especially, was a huge help. "Grains" like quinoa and amaranth are now potential tools in my arsenal. More importantly, I now have recipes in my repertoire that we know work and that everyone in the family can eat.

    Hey, I’ve made that same recipe — at least twice (the one without the sugar). The first time, I was trying to impress your dad (while we were dating) with my culinary skills. LOL And he even had a buddy with him to witness my fail.
