Chocolate, nuts, alcohol, does life get any better? Bang them altogether and bake as a brownie and you will be living the dream.
This is how to fulfill that dream…
Bourbon Pecan Brownies!!!
- 200g dark chocolate
- 125g unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 125g soft light brown sugar
- 100g caster suger
- 75ml bourbon whiskey
- 2 tsp vanilla etract
- 175g plain flour
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 125g pecan nuts, roughly chopped
Get the oven preheated to 190°C and line a 20cm square (or similar sized) tin. There isn’t much to say about making brownies, you mix a bunch of stuff together, stick it in the oven, take it out then eat them.
Ok, ok, there might be a little bit more to it than that. Gently melt the chocolate and butter together in a saucepan. STOP!!! I said gently melt the chocolate and butter together in a saucepan, was that gentle? Beat the eggs and sugars together (an electric whisk might be helpful) until pale and fluffy. Next beat the gently melted chocolate into the eggy sugary goodness, add the vanilla and bourbon (ok, so I used Jack Daniel’s which isn’t a bourbon, but screw you), sift in the flour and cocoa and mix that shizzle up.
Try not to just eat the mixture but get it into the tin and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes. I like brownies to be a bit gooey so I took them out after 20 minutes. Let them cool down before cutting. Enjoy with something like a Brewdog Paradox Grain or another barrel aged stout.
