I’ve been following the Tuesdays with Dorie group for some time now. I used to do this with the other book, although I never did finish all of the recipes. I probably finished about 3/4 of them. I have been wavering on whether or not to join the group, but here I am. I took quite a large break from baking after having my kids, but I can no longer ignore my desire to get back in the kitchen. I’m hoping that this will also give my kids a chance to join me.
This was a great recipe for my “official” (I did make the rhubarb upside down cake a few weeks ago) start again. It was easy and delicious. While my husband swears that he doesn’t like anything in his brownies except for chocolate, he ate a quarter of these in less than a day. Next time I would probably bake them a little longer. I kept it on the short side at 27minutes, like the recipe recommended, but they are super gooey. And while I prefer my brownies gooey, these were a bit too gooey. It didn’t stop us from enjoying them though. I used a mixture of dried cranberries and cherries since I didn’t have enough dried cherries, but I could barely tell the difference. If anything, the tartness from the cranberries were nice.
