February 9, 2010– Tanya of Chocolatechic chose Rick Katz’s Brownies for Julia, on page 91 of Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
I am so glad I had a squiz at the P & Q for this recipe before I dove right in. I was on my second last bar of unsweetened chocolate and I have to make it count! Baking chocolate just isn’t sold here (commonly) in Australia. I bought some in Singapore 1 1/2 years ago and it has lived in my fridge since then.
I think these lovely brownies are closer to a lava cake, and I am so glad I baked them in individual financers shapes. I am all about the crust with a brownie and individual serves means I don’t hack off the edges and leave the rest for others with less baking prowess. And I could see the middle bits would not have sliced neatly.
Well that is until they chilled up in the fridge. Check out the texture change
