Marthe of Culinary Delights selected White Chocolate Brownies on pages 110 and 111. I’ll have a very blah photo going up by next Monday, because once again I’m out of town. I made these in a rush, and the part that I did make was absolutely delicious.
First, I only made the brownie layer. I bought the raspberries for these lovely brownies, but I ate them. All by myself. Before they could get put into the brownies. And I have NO regrets!
I halved the brownie layer recipe, baked it in a 9-inch pan, and ended up with a very, very thin concoction that was incredibly delicious. I didn’t taste the white chocolate at all, just the lovely orange zest. This part of the recipe would make a fantastic layer in a more complicated dessert, I think, but if I make it again just for the brownie part, I won’t halve the brownie recipe and I’ll bake it in an 8-inch pan to get a thicker brownie.
Next week: shortcakes. I’ve never made them before, and I’m thinking that I’ll make them with raspberries, only this time I’ll buy extra. Just in case.
