Oh, there’s so much to share, and Tuesday comes but once a week!
Chocolate. Butter. Sugar. Nuts, or no nuts. Finger food, and two-bite sized. Honest, sublime, homey, decadent, simple, sophisticated: brownies may be the all-time perfect treat.
Besides, Foodie Tuesday was due for a sugar fix.
Here’s an offering for Foodie Tuesday that may actually improve upon perfection: chocolate brownies with a sweet gooey layer of dulce de leche in the middle. This brownie recipe is a time-honored classic that I’ve made dozens of times (even in gluten-free flour; all I add is a little xanthan gum to keep them from falling apart in my hands), and thanks to David Lebovitz and brought to my attention at babble.com, the addition of dulce de leche is simple and effective. Best of all, for those of you in the lunch-carrying corps, these are eminently packable and sure to draw longing stares from your coworkers.
If you like that kind of thing. It’s your call.
Unfamiliar with dulce de leche? Here’s another link from David with the recipe. Easy as can be: one ingredient, a can of sweetened condensed milk.
