gluten free brownies for mother’s day.
tomorrow is mother’s day. my family is going to the museum. and i made my mom brownies. that are gluten free because she has celiac disease. so there’s no flour, and they are basically chocolate, sugar, and eggs. and pecans. there are a lot of pecans.
these are really easy brownies. which is really a good things because i’ve been so not here today. i messed up maybe six sandwiches at work today and couldn’t stop dropping things. i was very afraid i might just set fire to my house while baking this evening. i didn’t. but you can start by measuring 2 tablespoons of dark cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of regular cocoa powder. just set it aside.
my cat is super curious. she watches me from the kitchen sink.
in a food processor you are going to blend 2 cups of pecans. they will look like sand. this is a picture of sandy pecans.
and it turns out you make the whole thing in the food processor! add the cocoa powders (2 tablespoons dark and 3 tablespoons regular). add 3/4 cup of sugar. add 1/3 cup of oil. add 1 teaspoon of vanilla. and then add four eggs.
and then you blend it all for approximately 2 minutes. my cat was doing strange things while this was happening. like throwing herself around on the ground…
this is what it will look like.
grease an 8x8 inch pan. set the oven to 350. and bake for 25-30 minutes. during this time i made vanilla buttercream frosting to write a nice mother’s day message. my cat however, loves butter. buttercream is made with butter. she wouldn’t leave me alone. cooking with cats is quite difficult.
and finished. i should probably work on my cursive.
and she doesn’t help clean either.
