Daim Chocolate Ginger Brownies

Daim Chocolate Ginger Brownies

These chocolate ginger brownies are not as gooey and chewy like most brownies, they are more like a dense rich cake. But very delicious. I used more ginger than recommended in the recipe.

If you prefer the brownies to be bit more chewy you can add a small amount of golden or dark syrup. 

Adopted from Martha Stewart


Ingredients
½ cup unsalted butter plus more for baking dish
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate coarsely chopped
¾ cup sugar (or 1 cup sugar is using cocoa powder instead of O’boy Daim chocolate drink mix))
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup O’boy Daim chocolate drink mix (or ¼ cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder)
2 large eggs (1/4)
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon coarse salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Directions
1.       Preheat oven to 160 degrees
2.      Butter an 8-inch square baking dish. Line bottom with parchment paper, allowing 2 inches to hang over 2 sides. Butter parchment; set aside.
3.      Melt butter and chocolate together in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in remaining ingredients.
4.      Pour batter into prepared dish. Smooth top with a rubber spatula. Bake until a cake tester inserted into center comes out with moist crumbs, 30 to 35 minutes.
5.      Let cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes. Lift out, and let cool completely on rack. Cut into sixteen 2-inch squares. Brownies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 4 days.

  4. Chocolate and ginger is a weakness of mine. I love the combination, and the brownies look divine! I would have added more ginger than called for, too. I love the spicy warmth it adds!

    I also gave your blog an award, please do stop by my blog to accept it!
