Stove-Top Brownies

"I had the urge one day to bake some brownies, but I didn't have a clean bowl to use yet, and I was planning on using a saucepan to melt some butter anyhow. This is really quick to prepare, and you just add as you go along. This creates some fudgy brownies which is what I like, but if you like brownies that are more firm than you should probably bake for another 2 minutes."

    Stove top brownies ohh I was excited to find as my friend has no working oven. This recipe's deceiving as its cooked in an oven. Change the title please.

    I have no oven, so I was looking for Stove-Top Deserts. I found this one and had my heart set on Stove-Top Brownies! Okay lets read the directions. Are you kidding me? Why is the first thing you do preheat the non-existent oven to 350 degrees. I did try to combine the ingredients as the student chef suggested and cook in the pan......It did not work.

    Mine turned out uncooked. The dough was tasty though. I wanted a recipe for "Stove-Top Brownies." Stove-Top typically means just that, not oven baked. Useless recipe.

    SC - these are a very nice dense & moist brownie. I think the cinnamon overwhelms the flavor of chocolate just a bit so next time I make them I'll reduce that to about a 1/2 tsp or less. I like cinnamon with chocolate but this was just a tad bit too much for our liking. I had a bit of difficulty with your instructions as I was not sure if everything was to be cooked over the stove or the pan removed after the butter melted. I did the latter and removed it. I cannot bake in my saucepan so I just poured the batter into an 8x8 pan and it fit perfectly!! They were done perfectly in 20 minutes.

I am an Israeli-Canadian who grew up in Montreal Quebec. I love to cook, especially for family and friends, and I love to experiment with recipes and try to do different variations of the same recipe. I did do part of cooking school, but found the place stressful and all the good recipes high in fat and calories, even the good ones. I don't have a fave cookbook, but I eat kosher. I have a dream and that is to own my own B&B one of these days. I also love creative writing, and maybe I like to try make up a recipe of my own and see if I'm good at doing that. I have to add that I do have some favourite chefs from the Food Network. They are Giada De Laurentis from Everyday Italian; Micheal Smith from Chef at Home; Jamie Oliver and everything he does; Anna Olson from Sugar; and Chef Gordon Ramsey from Hells' Kitchen and Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=100%> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> spring 08 <img src=""> <img src=""> fall 08 <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> spring 09 <img src=""> fall 09 <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
