These are these form of brownies.

The form of brownies the place you eat one and swear off chocolate for the remainder of the 12 months and vow to eat salad (and salad alone!) for the following week. However then you definately sneak one for breakfast the following morning. And possibly one for lunch too.

The form of brownies which can be so wealthy and fudgy, it’s important to eat them with a spoon.

The form of brownies that incite arguments over who will get the final one.

(Yeah, that occurred.)

I notice that Cherry Lambic Brownies aren’t precisely why you learn Oh My Veggies, however I had this concept floating round in my head ever since I made cupcakes with raspberry lambic earlier this 12 months. I beloved the trace of fruit the lambic added to these chocolate cupcakes and I needed to experiment with utilizing it in additional baked items. So I added “cherry lambic brownies” to my large record of recipes to make and it sat there for a number of months.

So when you’re not right here for brownies, you may come again tomorrow and I promise I’ll have one thing more healthy for you. Deal?

Though I like cherries, I’m not a giant fan of cherries in pies and muffins. The flavour is a bit an excessive amount of for me. I assumed I’d strive utilizing Bing cherries as a result of they’re in season they usually have a mellower taste than different, extra assertive cherries which can be used for baking. The lambic additionally provides extra of a cherry undertone to the brownies–it’s understated, but it surely’s there. Make no mistake although, chocolate is the star right here.
