I've had a thing for brownies lately...they're pretty easy to make, there are a million different combinations, and well, I feel less guilty eating a little brownie rather than a slab a cake, a decadent dessert or something smothered in frosting. So...you'll see lots of brownie variations. I tried to pinpoint some recipes that I thought were different..not your regular ole brownie recipe..so we're starting with Daddy's Bangor Brownies...they're not my Daddy's recipe..and I grew up in a place called Woonsocket..not Bangor...but I still thought they were good! These are a big cakey brownie..not a small bite and I thought they were pretty damn good!
These came out of a cookbook called the Best of the Best...it has different recipes from the best cookbooks as determined by Food and Wine Magazine. This particular recipe came from the cookbook Heirloom Baking with the Brass Sisters.
all prepped and ready to go!
Again..these were some serious brownies..if you're looking for an extremely dense intense chocolate flavor..probably not the recipe for you. But, if you like your brownies more like cake and less fudge like..these will be a hit with you!
