I decided to make brownies today, so we modified our normal recipe for K3. We ended up with both a GFCF batch and a regular batch. Honestly, I think the GFCF ones taste better! Oh, and FYI… this took about 10 minutes to mix up and 25 to bake… easy peasy!
1/4 C. White Rice Flour
1/4 C. Brown Rice Flour
1/4 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/3 C. Equal Exchange Cocoa Powder (http://www.equalexchange.com/cocoa)
1/2 C. Wholesome Sweetners Evaporated Cane Sugar (You can also use Wholesome Sweetners ZERO for a no sugar variety http://www.wholesomesweeteners.com/ )
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 C. Earth Balance Margarine- Melted
1/2 C. of mix-ins (we like Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips, Chopped Nuts, Dried Cranberries)
Combine melted margarine, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs and mix well with spatula or wooden spoon (remember, wooden spoons can contaminate foods, so use ones that are for your GF cooking only!)
In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated (I do this by hand as adding to much air to the mix will give you a cake like brownie). Add mix-in if desired and gently fold in.
Pour into prepared (either sprayed or wax paper trick below) glass 8×8 pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes. (Watch closely as you want to remove brownies when a pick placed in the center comes out with just a bit of gooey brownie and not actual batter). Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes.
A nice trick for making brownies easy to remove from the pan, line your pan with a piece of wax paper that extends over two ends by an inch or so. Place brownie batter on wax paper. Allow to cool for 30 minutes in the pan, then grasp ends of wax paper and lift from the pan. Cut brownies using a pizza cutter. Perfect everytime!
