Delicious sweet brownies that don't use wheat flour
- 2⁄3 cup rice flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 ounces chocolate
- 1⁄3 cup butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- Melt the chocolate and butter then leave to cool.
- Meanwhile beat the eggs then add the sugar, vanilla and cooled chocolate mixture.
- Add the flour and baking powder and mix well.
- Put in greased brownie pan (around 8 inches square).
- Cook for 30-35 minutes at Gas 4,180c.
- Allow to cool a little in the pan then cut into squares.
- If you don't have chocolate you can substitute for 6 tablespoons of cocoa and 2 tablespoons of butter.
These are really delicious, with slight modifications. The amount of chocolate and the salt ratio is a bit off - they are not very chocolatey, but they are salty. I doubled the amount of chocolate, to 4 oz, and they are ridiculously good. My husband (who doesn't eat GF) and I ate the whole pan pretty much in one night. Thanks for sharing.
The finished product tasted alright but not what I think of when brownies come to mind. They were cake like and dry. The volume of batter this recipe makes isn't very much and when baked (in an 8x8 pan) the batch is only about 1/2 an inch thick. I checked them @ 20 mins and were already baked and pulled away from the sides of the pan. The end result was disappointing after reading duonyte's review. Used 2 lg eggs and 2 ounces of my Callebaut bittersweet chocolate. I really wanted to love this but it's the first time I have ever used rice flour and perhaps I just didn't know what to expect.
I put cocoa and peanut butter because we have no chocolate chips, hope it's good
