I love wine and now I’m ready to bake with it. I never thought to put it in brownie mix. I bet it gives the brownies a fuller flavor and everything is good with chocolate.
2/3 Cup Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
¾ Cup Sugar
¼ teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
¼ Teaspoon Salt
½ Cup Butter, Melted
½ Cup Chopped Walnuts
¾ Cup Ghirardelli Sweet Ground Cocoa
2 Tablespoons HandCraft Pinot Noir
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine eggs with sugar and vanilla; add butter and HandCraft wine.
Stir Ghirardelli Chocolate with flour, baking powder and salt.
Combine with egg mixture; add nuts.Spread into greased 8×8-inch pan.
Bake 25-30 minutes. Yields 16-20 brownies.
HandCraft Pinot Noir Icing
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
3 tablespoons HandCraft Pinot Noir
Meanwhile prepare icing.
Melt butter over medium heat.
Reduce heat to low and add chocolate, sugar and wine.
Continue heating over low heat stirring often, until mixture is smooth – don’t let it boil.
Spoon hot icing over fresh brownies and let stand for a minimum of an hour; 12 hours is best. Enjoy!
