Browned Buttered Brownies

I had mentioned last week that my son had his tonsils out. He didn't eat for 8 days! Needless to say, he was quite hungry, and he now has made some food requests. One request was his favorite dessert, browned buttered brownies with mint butter cream frosting! We do love butter!

I love brownies myself and homemade ones are the best, especially when you take the time to brown the butter. So stop using the packaged stuff! I know this one by heart, and I think every chocolate lover should too.

Browned Buttered Brownies

  • 10 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1 & 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla paste
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 large eggs

Melt the butter over medium-low heat, it will brown as it bubbles, the browner it gets, the better, but as I have said before, butter burns easily so don't walk away from it. Remove from heat, immediately add the sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt. Add the eggs one at a time and beat vigorously after each to blend. When it looks thick and shiny, add flour, stir until blended. Transfer batter to greased 8x8 pan and cook at 325 for 27 minutes. 

Mint Butter Cream Icing

  • 8 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar 
  • Dash of peppermint extract
  • And if you like, add some green food coloring

Mix until smooth

The truck is coming out of storage very soon! I am so excited! We are at a ton of festivals all summer long, and we are adding on some fun stuff! I didn't put a fryer on my truck because they stink! SO, I am adding some fresh sides that will be seasonal, fresh, and homemade! We cut our own cabbage to make the slaw and braise our meats daily! Come out and see us this summer. 

Happy cooking from my kitchen to yours,

Chef Carol
