Most of us probably won't be going to a cafe anytime soon but that doesn't mean you might not miss the experience of it with a cup of a nice warm drink and something sweet to enjoy so since most of the world still is under some form of lock down I thought this would be the right time to put up the first blog post in my series of 'Recipe recommendations'. Remember none of these recipes are made by me all of them are exclusively ones I've tried and loved and because of that thought would be good recommendations therefore - recipe recommendations
Something to point out before we get started is that if you don't know I'm allergic to gluten so the entirety of the recipes in this series are going to be glutenfree. I've actually also done a whole guide on being diagnosed with gluten allergy along with a couple of (hopefully) helpful tips so if you want to check that out you can find it here.
In this first installment as the title gives away it's a recommendation for a glutenfree brownie and believe me in my time as someone with gluten allergy I've made quite a few brownies in order to find the perfect one and I can safely say that this definitely takes the top spot for that. Rest assured this isn't just my opinion but the opinion of everyone who has been my test subjects on this journey. In the original recipe it's said to be a chocolate cake but from my experience of now having baked this multiple times it's definitely more of a brownie than it is a chocolate cake.
The recipe is in danish so for those of you who don't understand that I've translated it to english but for those of you who do obviously I'll just leave a link to the original recipe.
Now let's just get started!
Ingredients you'll need:
- 75 grams of butter
- 100 grams of dark chocolate
- 3 eggs
- 100 grams of cane sugar
- Grains from 1/2 vanilla pod or 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
- 1/4 teaspoons of salt
Now onto the actual recipe:
You firstly have to chop up the chocolate - it doesn't have to be very finely done as the chocolate will just be put into a pot to melt.
Next melt the chopped chocolate along with the butter in either a water bath or just directly in a pot at low heat - the author of this recipe says that you can just opt for the latter if you're lazy and impatient and that's what she did. I've also only melted it directly in a pot and haven't had any problems with this in any way.
Meanwhile that's melting you can spend your time whisking together the rest of the ingredients that is eggs, cane sugar, vanilla and salt light and frothy.
Now you're ready to whisk the two mixtures together and after doing so it should look something like this.
You're now ready to bake it but before doing so the next step is to pour the mixture into either a greased baking tray or a baking tray that you've lined with baking paper like you can see from the photo below that I've done - in my opinion this is way easier and a plus is the baking tray doesn't necessarily get dirty so you don't have to wash it every time you use it (obviously though wash it sometimes to keep it clean and hygienic). In the recipe it's recommended that you use a baking tray with a diameter of about 20 cm I believe the one I've used is about 25 cm and in my experience this hasn't affected the recommended baking time in any way.
Now just put it into the oven at the fan-assisted oven setting at 160 celsius degrees, wait 30 minutes and there you go a delicious glutenfree brownie!
Here's your delicious brownie freshly baked out of the oven! I hope you enjoy it.
I would definitely recommend serving it with some kind of berries my preferred kind is blueberries - as you can see from the picture - along with a nice hot drink - my favorite is any kind of tea. In the recipe it's also recommended to serve it with vanilla ice cream and although I haven't tried that I'm certain it would also be absolutely delicious.
I'll leave this here. Hopefully you'll enjoy this little baked good and make it to yourself as a treat for how well you're doing at handling this very strange situation going on in the world right now.
De fleste af os kommer nok ikke til at gå på cafe i den nærmere fremtid, men det betyder ikke, at du måske ikke savner oplevelsen af det med en kop af noget dejlig varmt at drikke og noget sødt at nyde, så eftersom det meste af verden stadig er under en eller anden form for lock down tænkte jeg, at det her ville være det rigtige tidspunkt at lægge det første blogindlæg op i min serie om 'Recipe recommendations'. Husk på, at ingen af de her opskrifter er lavet af mig, de er alle udelukkende, nogle jeg har prøvet og elsket, og på grund af dette tænkte jeg, de ville være gode anbefalinger derfor - opskrifts anbefalinger.
Et punkt, som er værd at pointere, inden vi går i gang er, at hvis du ikke ved det, så er jeg allergisk derfor gluten, så alle de opskrifter, i den her serie, kommer udelukkende til at være glutenfrie. Jeg har faktisk lavet en hel guide om at blive diagnosticeret med glutenallergi sammen med nogle (forhåbentlig) hjælpsomme tips, så hvis du har lyst til at tjekke den ud, kan du finde den her
I det her første afsnit, som titlen afslører, er det en anbefaling til en glutenfri brownie, og tro mig i min tid som glutenallergiker har jeg bagt ret så mange brownies for at finde den perfekte opskrift, og jeg kan med sikkerhed sige, at den her helt sikkert tager førstepladsen for det. Bare rolig det her er ikke kun min mening, men også meningen af dem, der har været mine testpersoner på den her rejse. I opskriften er den beskrevet som en chokoladekage, men fra min oplevelse af nu at have bagt den her ret mange gange er den helt sikkert mere en brownie, end en chokoladekage.
Eftersom opskriften er på dansk og dig, som læser det her tydeligvis kan forstå det, vil jeg ikke skrive noget af opskriften her, siden det jo ikke er en, jeg har fundet på. I stedet vil jeg henvise dig til den, og hvis du vil prøve og bage den selv, kan du finde den her. Dog afholder det dig jo ikke fra at nyde billederne ovenfor af min bageproces.
Jeg vil afslutte blogindlægget her. Jeg håber du nyder brownien og lader dig få den som en belønning for, hvor godt du klarer hele den her meget mærkelige tid.
Jeg håber vi ses igen snart!
