I had some leftover mascarpone cheese (you’ll see why eventually!) and I didn’t want it to go to waste. So, I made these Mascarpone Brownies today and stashed them in the freezer for Joe to bring to work next week. They came out dense, fudgy, rich… everything that a good brownie is, at least in my book. I used the ganache recipe as well, but doctored it up to make it an espresso ganache with about 2 tsp instant espresso powder and a splash of Kahlua. Enjoy the pics and make the brownies 🙂
I got 24 brownies out of the pan since I knew they would be rich:
Side view – the only way to see all the fudgy goodness and ganache layer! Sorry it’s a little blurry, still not great with the camera yet!
Hope you all enjoyed your President’s Day. I know I enjoyed the day off 🙂
I’m skipping TWD this week because I worked on my Daring Bakers Challenge all week, but I’ll be back in action the following week.
I have half a large can of pumpkin, so I think some Pumpkin Apple Bread is in order ASAP!
Any fun Valentine’s stories to share? I spent mine alone (no worries, I don’t like V-Day) since naturally the chef had to work all weekend. We did have a GREAT dinner out with my daddy on Friday for sushi!
