When we can take a “Kid” treat and make it for adults, it’s always a good thing. These red wine brownies are so good. The red wine adds a richer flavor and complexity. Be sure to use a good wine when baking. Remember if you wouldn’t drink with itchy would you cook/bake with it?
I wish you a relaxing experience sipping your wine while eating your brownies.
Fudgy Red WIne Brownies
Brownies made for adults with Red Wine.
Servings: 15 brownies
- 4 Lrg. Eggs
- 1-1/2 Cups Dutch Process Cocoa
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1 tsp. Baking Powder
- 1 Tbs. Vanilla Extract
- 1 Cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
- 1-1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
- 1-1/2 Cups All-purpose Flour
- 1/2 Cup Red Wine, use what you would drink
- 1 Bag Chocolate Chips, semi-sweet or milk
Preheat oven to 350°.Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray and then line with parchment paper. Lightly spray paper, too. In the bowl of a stand-up mixer, beat 4 eggs, until frothy. Sift together cocoa, salt & baking powder; Blend into eggs, then add vanilla. Do not overwork, you do not want a tough brownie.
In a medium saucepan, over a medium heat, melt the butter and then stir in sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. You want a temperature of about 115°. Remove from heat and keep stirring if too hot.
With mixer running, on medium speed, slowly pour butter/sugar mix into egg and dry ingredients mixture. Stir until smooth.Add the flour and stir until just combined. Pour in wine and just combine.Fold in chips and spoon into prepared pan. Bake brownies for 25 to 35 minutes. A tester should come out with a few moist crumbs. It should still look moist but not raw in the center.Remove from oven and cool on rack.
Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to a week. LOL if they last that long.
