I was happy to see my homemade brownie recipe pinned to Nikki Scott's Pinterest page under "Good things to eat!" and a repin by Carol Frith under "Foods i love."
All this chocolate love inspired me to revisit the brownie recipe and rework it in a gluten free version. I am trying my husband on a gluten free diet with much success so my readers will be seeing more gluten free recipes from me.
So here's what I came up with. My food reviewers - the "fam" - loved them and said they are better than the regular ones. See what you think.
Gluten Free Fudgy Brownies
Prep: 20 min.
Bake: 25 min.
1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
6 tbsp. butter
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
1 large egg plus 1 large egg white
1 1/4 cups sugar
Preparation: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 inch square baking pan and set aside. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Melt butter and chocolate until smooth in a saucepan over low heat. Set aside to cool slightly. Combine eggs and sugar in a bowl and stir in chocolate and butter mixture. Add dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Pour into pan and bake until set in center, about 25 minutes. Let cool.
My family ate them out of the pan before I could remove and cut into squares.
For those familiar with gluten free foods, you may use xanthan gum in your baking as a thickening agent. The package of the flour I was using suggested adding xanthan gum but I did not and they came out just fine.
