We just had our first glimpse of Indian Summer here in SF.
Wow, it was so hot! I haven’t done much baking at all because I didn’t want to turn on the oven but the fog has rolled back in so we’re back in business.
Walnut fudge brownies sounded like a good bet for this foggy day.
I mixed the dry ingredients together and then made the wet chocolate mixture.
I added butter, eggs and vanilla to the chocolate mixture and then mixed the dry and wet ingredients together.
I poured the batter into a parchment lined pan. I still don’t have a square brownie pan! I then added more walnuts to the top and popped it into the oven.
The recipe said to bake it for 19 minutes. That felt short to me but I tried. At 19 minutes, it was still super raw so I put it in for 19 more. It was only halfway cooked after the second 19. I thought to myself, maybe it’s because it’s supposed to be fudge… but it didn’t feel right to serve raw brownies so I put it in for 30 more minutes and then it was finally done.
It was crumbly but still moist in the middle. It didn’t seem like fudge though. Maybe I missed the mark on that point… but it was still delicious!
