Oh yes people, the name of the brownie I made today was Better Than Sex brownie.
And there is a reason I was compelled to make this. It is a message to MPS.
Yes, my dear husband, I am resorting to baking to get my message across.
I know you have been working long hours, I know you have been sick, I know that you just absolutely positively had to finish Guy Kawasaki’s book draft, I know Boo has been a bastard with the night time shenanigans. I know, I know, I fucking know already.
But I am sick of going to bed alone. I am sick of you finally falling into bed at 2, 3, 4am and snoring just before your head hits the pillow. Ya feel me?
Um, well you are not. So I guess you don’t.
Don’t make start adopting cats….
Anyway. I was Twittering about making these orgasmic morsels and promised to post the recipe. And seeing this is A HOUSEWORK AND RECIPE BLOG, I didn’t want to disappoint. And you know what makes this brownie EVEN BETTER? It is gluten and milk free. And they make me warm in my panties.
60grams dark chocolate
1/2 cup margarine or butter,
I use this stuff. Milk free, nut free (despite the name) and Failsafe and Feingold safe.
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, fork stirred
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup arrowroot flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Melt margarine and chocolate over low heat in
medium saucepan, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat.
Mix in sugar, then eggs and vanilla.
Stir in arrowroot flour, salt, xanthan gum, and
Yes, I am one of those freakshows that measure everything in bowls first like the TV chefs. Oh, and I clean as I go. Can anyone say control freak?
Boo gave me this. He saw me taking photos, therefore I am now Martha Stewart.
scratch that. Apparently I am this bloke
yeah. Thanks Boo, you bastard.
Generously grease an 8x8x2 inchpan, then shake 3 tablespoons arrowroot
flour around to cling to grease. Or line with baking paper. Spread brownie
mixture evenly in pan.
Bake in center of oven for 25 minutes. Give pan a half turn, and
continue baking 10 to 15 minutes until done. These brownies are done
when they feel firm to touch in the middle, and they have a nice shiny
sheen on the top crust.
Cool completely. Cut into squares with a thin sharp knife. Enjoy!
while blogging about
my the awesomeness of the orgasm brownie.
And I made vegetarian burritos for dinner.
Nothing to do with the lack of humpy pumpy, inspired by this found on Fail Blog.
I do that all the time. I totally mistook one of my kids for a caesar salad once, realised while I was shaving the parmesan.
Pity I can’t say the same of the time I thought Too was a basketball. She still gets all skittish when we pass the basketball stadium.
