French Brownies - Tuesdays with Dorie

Hooray! It's Tuesday and time to share this week's Tuesdays with Dorie Adventure with you. This week's recipe French Brownies were chosen by Di of Di's Kitchen Notebook (you will find the recipe on her blog). There was a lot of talk about these ones!!!

The concerns including excessive cracking, the brownies deflating and whether or not raisins belong in brownies! So, we decided to try them as per the recipe to see what would happen in our kitchen...we didn't find the presenation to be altered by the cracking, the raisins were moist and yummy and there was nothing deflated about these little guys!

They were highly rated by all of our kitchen testers!!!


Here you can see our little guy (he insisted that I take a photo of him testing them out) enjoying his brownie and soy ice cream. Ah yes, there were a few substitutions due to his lactose intolerance (I almost forgot!) We used President's Choice Chocolate Chips in place of the Bittersweet Chocolate as there is no milk in them and Earth Balance Buttery Spread in place of the butter. The rest was according to Dorie.

We are really looking forward to this week's Challenge with Marie from A Year from Oak Cottage. She has chosen La Palette's Strawberry Tart. Yummy!


Enjoy!
Heather

It's always a great relief, if the kitchen testers (very cute) love the baking...
