Oh ok. I admit. I'm a brownie snob. I love my brownies. And since I know I have a no fail, my ultimate chocolate brownies recipe, I rarely look at another brownie recipe again.
But never say never. Nigella Lawson's Flourless Chocolate Brownies caught my attention and I gave it a go on our double dinner date with friends. It was so good that I regret being a brownie snob. Coincidentally, it's also on Nigella's cook-a-long which means it is just calling out to be shared.
Funny enough, I don't have a Nigella Lawson cookbook and since this brownie was made, guess what did hubby surprised me with?
A "How to be a Domestic Goddness Cookbook"
I know I know! It's a oldie but since I haven't one of hers, it was exciting. The funny thing was, my hubby came and said "I'm going to buy you a Nigella Lawson's cookbook as a surprise but when I got there, I realised I have no idea...so I took photos of the cover.. which one do you want?"
haha..Sweet. Now look at the tabs- These are all the bakes I want to make soon!
But back to these brownies. They are really moist in the middle and I do recommend that it be made the day before and warm it up before serving with ice cream. It's messy but really awesome. I HAD to take a few bites even when it wasn't on my cheat day!
I didn't bother with the sauce as I think ice cream is sufficient. I reduced the sugar and it still tastes fantastic. Oh what a treat!
