When we take these gluten free brownies to parties everyone begs for the recipe. They are always so surprised when they find out that I make them gluten free. Even my husband, who doesn't prefer gluten free, LOVES these. If you don't cook gluten free, there is a non-gluten version as well.
Enjoy! And Happy Holidays! I can't wait for our upcoming Thanksgiving Feast and Christmas Parties! Yeah, it's just around the corner.
Best Ever Brownies! Gluten Free by: Nicholeen Peck
Recipe makes a 9x13 pan (If we double it, we put it in a jelly roll pan)
Pre-heat oven to 350 Degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
In a sauce pan melt 1 Cup butter or margarine
After melted add 1/2 Cup cocoa or 4 squares baking chocolate
Remove from heat and add 2 cups sugar
Then add 4 eggs stirring one in at a time until blended.
Next add 1 tsp vanilla
1/2 Cup Rice Flour
1/2 Cup Tapioca Starch
1/2 Cup Corn Starch
(may substitute other healthier flours and even coconut oil for butter, but this may alter taste or texture) For non-gluten free you can just use regular 1 1/2 Cups flour and omit the xantham gum.
1 tsp Xantham Gum
1/2 tsp salt
Nuts optional (most of the time I don't use nuts)
Bake in heated oven for 30 minutes. Do not overbake.
After the brownies have cooled apply this icing.
3 Cups powdered sugar
1/4 Cup Margarine or Butter
1/4 Cup Cocoa
1 egg or 3 TBL water
3 TBL hot milk
Mix together then frost.
We usually add sprinkles to the top of the frosting too. Yummy!
