Today is our stop during the blog tour for Christmas Fantasies by Siren Allen. Christmas Fantasies is published by Entranced Publishing. Please welcome Siren as she joins us with a holiday recipe!
I don’t cook, but I do like to bake and I came across this yummy sounding recipe that I plan to make for Christmas.
Red Velvet Brownies
~ 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
~ 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
~4 large eggs,
~ Red food coloring (optional)
~4 tsp pure vanilla extract
~2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
~6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 tsp salt
~Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9 X 13 clear glass baking pan. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then stir in food coloring (if not using food coloring add 4 T of water or milk) and vanilla, mix until the color is fully incorporated. Mix flour, cocoa and salt in a separate bowl. Slowly add in the flour mixture being very careful not to over mix. The batter will be very thick. Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir up the batter with a rubber spatula once or twice just to ensure all of the flour has incorporated from the sides of the bowl and there isn’t anything stuck on the bottom of the bowl. You’ll want one uniformly colored (red) batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes. 35 minutes for a thin crust on top and gooey underneath. Set aside to cool, cut into bars and serve.
~This sounds absolutely delicious. Red Velvet Brownies is a dessert that Alyssa from Christmas Fantasy would love to try. But knowing her she would probably ask her very sexy boss, Devin Jordan to eat them off of her, which would lead to him touching her playfully, then a few sensual caresses later his beast would emerge and all thoughts of brownies would leave Alyssa’s mind. Maybe she should stick to eating her desserts when he’s not around. ~
