COOKBOOK: Kitchen Wookbooks
I never knew that there was a recipe book completely dedicated to ‘squares’! To be exact, 150 squares!
For some silly reason I see the word ‘brownies’ and I relate it back to chocolate. This is not the case. I have now learnt that there isn’t necessarily chocolate in all brownies.
These little sweet ‘squares’ were delicious!
Way too easy to make and very presentable on a platter. Perfect for a tea party or after dinner munchies.
RECIPE: This recipe got the measurements correct. I doubled the recipe and made a large tray which made over 40 small squares (see video)
The icing/butterscotch sauce will require a little more icing sugar (surprise surprise). Let it stand for 5mins only before pouring on the cool layer (brownie)
These slices were delicious and just as delicious the day after. I rated it delicious/good for intermediates because butterscotch sauce isn't always easy to get right. It might be a little tricky to get the thickness just the way you like it.
HINT: Remove it from heat if you feel it is starting to burn. Pots don’t have to stay directly over heat at all times.
MAKES 25 SQUARES
Butter 1/4 cup (60ml) , melted
Brown sugar, 1 cup (250ml)
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Plain flour 3/4 cup (175ml)
Walnuts 1/2 cup (125ml) chopped
Baking powder 1 teaspoon
Brown sugar 1/4 cup (60ml)
Butter 2, tablespoons
Milk 2, tablespoons
Icing sugar, 1 cup (250ml)
Melt butter in saucepan and add it to the brown sugar in a large bowl. Stir. Add egg and vanilla. Stir.
Add plain flour, chewed walnuts, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Spread evenly in greased 20x20xm pan. Bake in oven (175C) 350F for about 30mins, until edges start to pull away from side of pan and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out moist but with no raw batter. Do not overtake. Let stand on wire rack until cool.
ICING: Combine brown sugar, butter and milk in a saucepan. Heat and stir on medium until melted. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, uncovered for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to medium bowl. Cook for about 30mins until lukewarm.
Add icing sugar. Mix until smooth, adding more milk or icing sugar as necessary until spreading consistency. Spread evenly over brownie layer. Cuts into squares.
