We're not big drinkers in this house. In fact the reason this recipe came about was because the same bottle of bourbon had been taking up space in our fridge for three years. Yes, three years! I think we bought it so my husband could make a marinade.
We are more about chocolate than liquor. In other words I would rather eat my alcohol, not drink it. So what to do? Make brownies. Duh!
I've seen recipes for bourbon brownies. But they were either complicated or required what I call a sexy ingredient like imported vanilla extract or something I can't pronounce. Not in this house. We're on a budget.
What you'll need:
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
6 tablespoons butter, softened
2 large eggs
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
a pinch of salt
a greased pan
Pre heat that oven to 350 heat up your bourbon till it comes to a boil and then set aside.
Mix your sugar, flour, cocoa, eggs, salt, cinnamon and butter. Then pour in the bourbon mix, mix, mix. Add in the chips.
It will be a thick, thick mixture. Spread in to your pan and bake for 15 minutes. Then be amazed.
The cinnamon really brings out the bourbon flavor.
