Square, round,or dug out of the pan with your hand and smashed into a compacted ball of brownie goo, who cares, I'll eat any brownie you throw at me.

Provided it's made with real butter!

i started making teeny tiny batches of two or four brownie cupcakes at a time to limit the damages because i will eat the whole dang pan of goodies--

 

while i have replaced sugar with stevia there's no replacement for the butter -- and i use coconut or almond 'flour' too--i can lose weight and still enjoy my sweets--

 

took me a loooong time to adjust from sugar to stevia--

This thread made me laugh. Now I want jumbo round brownies for breakfast. Lol

Thank you for making me laugh today.   I love the thought of cutting a square out of a round cake - and that it why it costs more.  Brilliant.  I had never thought that squares were more complicated, but I guess with fondant icing trying to get rid of the excess as you fold the edges down is slightly more time consuming perhaps.  The main thing is to know that it takes more ingredients for a square cake than a round.  My recipe book for wedding cakes shows that a square cake takes the equivalent ingredients of a round cake that is 1 inch smaller.  i.e.  a 9 inch round is equivalent to an 8 inch square and so forth all up and down the size spectrum.  So worth bearing in mind when quoting for a square.  Hope that helps.  Kx

Oh please share the recipe please!
post #42 of 42

oh sure--no big secret--it's a popular formulation like this one:

 

http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/desserts/molten-chocolate-cake/

 

i just halved it and i used baking truvia* in this-

 

*i'm out of the sweet leaf brand sugar leaf sugar/stevia baking blend which i prefer--truvia has a sugar alcohol in it called erythritol and it's not supposed to be too good for you--i'm under the impression the stevia blend is better for you--but point being i can lose weight and eat this way so hurray for that--

 

so it's not sugar free--but it's not a fully sugared product like say a triple batch of peanut fudge  ;)

 

  • 2 oz bittersweet ghirardelli chocolate
  • 4 T butter
  • 2T truvia baking blend  -or- 1 T and 1 t sweet leaf brand sugar leaf sweetener  -- both equivalent to quarter cup sugar
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 T gluten free all purpose flour
  • couple shakes of cinnamon (optional)
  • vanilla (optional)
  • nice T of spiced rum (optional)

 

softly melted the choc & butter while i got the eggs beaten well--whisked all together--baked in two ramekins at 415-420 degrees for 9.5 mins

 

bam!
