It’s baking hot in Dubai!

Standard

It’s baking hot in Dubai these days thanks to the fast-approaching summer! So I knew my next venture had to be ice-cream related. And when I think ice-cream I automatically think brownies … So today seemed like the perfect time to put to test an interesting brownie cups idea I came across on Pinterest a few days ago … Therefore, today I have for you ‘Ice-cream in Brownie Cups’. I promise this isn’t as tricky as I thought it would be, so don’t be afraid to try it out. The trick is to form the cup shape as soon as the brownies are out of the oven and still warm. There was a point where I thought I screwed up as the brownies seemed to be stuck to the muffin tray.(although I had greased it quite well). But running a butterknife around the edges of the brownie cups seemed to do the trick and they came out of the tray quite easily after that.

Time to go have one now before it turns into milkshake … hmmmm, now there’s another idea! I wonder if blending it with milk would end up tasting like the amazing ‘black forest’ milkshake at Johnny Rockets! I’ll leave that thought for a future failed baking experiement. In the meantime, here’s the recipe for todays brownies:  Read the rest of this entry
