Spice in the Kitchen: Rich, Dense, & Fudgy Vegan Brownies
Back when the Whole Foods near me opened, they carried a nice variety of Sticky Fingers Bakery sweets, like brownies, cookie sandwiches, whole cakes, etc. Now, for some odd reason, they just have their cupcakes available. I was so excited to buy a whole SF cake for a special occasion too! I'm disappointed to say the least.
In any case, I was able to indulge in the Sticky Fingers brownies while they were still in stock (and I saw quite a few customers also munching on them in the Whole Foods cafe!). Delicious. Fudgy, rich chocolate flavor, and dense. Just like I need a brownie to be.
When I grabbed a copy of the the Sticky Fingers cookbook, I knew I had to bake a batch of the brownies first. While I sent the majority of the batch to work with my husband for fear I would eat them all, I did indulge in one or two. Though probably from some mismeasurement on my part, they were a tad drier than the store's version, but equally delicious. I love that they have coffee in them, but instead of making it a mocha flavored brownie, the brew simply acts to enhance the chocolate flavor. This will be my new go-to recipe for future batches of brownies!
