I’ve made a lot of brownies in my baking life. A lot. Then, one day on a whim, I made these brownies. Oh, my.
These are really just your basic brownies. No add-ins, just brownies. But, two little adjustments turn them into something amazing.
First of all, instead of just melting the butter, I browned it. Browned butter has such a fantastic nutty flavor, and I could not love it more. I also used all brown sugar, which adds a whole different level of flavor than you’d get from granulated sugar. So, there we get to the origin of their name — Brown (Butter) Brown (Sugar) Brownies. Seriously, how fun is it to say Brown Brown Brownies?
I’ve been working on the book for a while, and I’m very proud and terrified and ecstatic all at the same time. The official name of the book is Bake or Break Volume 1: Cookies, Brownies, and Bars. That Volume 1 part implies that there are more volumes to come. In fact, I’ve already started working on the next book!
If you have an iPad and enjoy Bake or Break, I hope you’ll love the book! For the remainder of 2012, the book is available for a discounted price of $4.99. So, get yours now while it’s on sale!
