Once again, I forgot to take a picture. I made these for my mom’s birthday right before I took off on the drive back to school so I was rushed. I did try one, though, and they were delicious. Here’s a picture of what they looked like (a picture from the recipe at Grace’s Sweet Life)
And the recipe:
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter, cut in pieces
- 8 ounces white chocolate, chopped (or chips)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar (I used brown sugar, which made them a little less white but better tasting)
- 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- heaping 1/2 cup bitter-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- Butter and line a 9-inch baking pan with butter and parchment (or foil).
- Place butter in a medium-sized, heat-proof bowl. Place bowl over a pot of barely simmering water, melt butter halfway. Add half of the white chocolate and stir until chocolate has melted. Remove from heat and add in the remaining 4 ounces of chocolate. Stir until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth.
- Place sugar and eggs in a large bowl. Using a mixer on high speed beat sugar and eggs until pale and thick, about 3 minutes. Reduce speed to medium and add vanilla and chocolate mixture, beat just to combine.
- In a separate bowl, using a fine-mesh sieve, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Add to egg mixture and beat until smooth.
- Add chocolate chips, using a spatula, stir to just combine (do not over stir).
- Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into centre comes out clean. Place on wire rack to cool completely. Remove from pan and cut into squares.
My mom really liked them, and hopefully, even though I couldn’t be there for her birthday yesterday, they made the day just a little bit better :)
