I was craving chocolate the other day and we hadn’t baked together for a little while so I decided to make brownies! I wanted a recipe that would give Sixtine as much independence as possible and found a very easy recipe.

I prepared all the ingredients in small containers (bowls) and let her pour, stir and mix to her heart’s content! The brownies turned out beautifully and I ate most of it I must admit. Can’t blame it on the children or my husband but I am owning up to it!

Here is the recipe from FancyFlours:

Recipe makes approximately 16 servings.

– 1/2 cup butter
– 1 cup white sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder ( we recommend Valrhona)
– 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour an 8 ” square pan.

2. In large sauce pan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Hand mix in 1/3 cup cocoa, ½ cup flour, salt, and baking powder.

3. Spread batter into prepared pan.

4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.

I would love to try a gluten-free version to it if you have one you would like to share with me! There is too much gluten in my life!

        Yes I just put the same amount of spelt flour. You can also bake some tart crust (I’m not sure it’s the exact word ), for a savoury tart or quiche for example with rice flour and olive oil instead of butter. I love to have a look on this website (http://www.cleacuisine.fr/ ) she has a lot of recipes without gluten/ lactose/ milk…

    I get my gluten free flour from Lorenzo s Speciality Foods. Sorry my comma does not work. It is called baking mix. It works for everything except cookies. They have a cookie mix as well. It is awesome! I have a gluten allergy. It is genetic. I got it from my father and my 2.5 yr old son has it too but I am not ready to get him tested. He screams all night if I give him some. The doctors want him to eat regular food for three weeks. ugh.

      Hi Ingrid, it is so nice to hear from you! I don’t think we have anything like that here on PEI but I was able to find some gluten-free flour at the Superstore in the organic section. I am just wondering if a different type of flour would call for some adjustments in the recipe? I would rather try a gluten-free recipe rather than adapt a recipe if that makes sense!
      Sorry to hear about your gluten allergy: it must be really difficult on all of you – I am convinced that I am gluten intolerant (I am lactose and egg intolerant) but I have never made any tests. I would like to decrease Sixtine’s gluten intake but I find it quite challenging! What are your favorite meals? You can e-mail me if it is better for you at sixtinetvictoire (at) gmail (dot) com.
