TWD - Brownie Buttons


Wow. Summer has just not been good for blogging. We are in the process of a lot of home improvement and moving and a garage sale last week and on and on and on. I actually made the Banana Cake last week but didn't have the energy to post about it after all of the painting and other home improvements. (Plus, I was disappointed because it basically tasted like banana bread to me and, frankly . . . there was an awful lot of banana cake in that recipe!)

And, now this week's Tuesdays with Dorie post is late too! But only a day late, I will add. Let me just say first that these Brownie Buttons were deadly delicious! I seriously thought about making another batch right after the first one cooled. I made them with the orange zest, which was WONDERFUL and added the white chocolate on top. They were perfect little snacks and would be very fancy to take to a party or something.

The only problem is that I doubled the recipe and only got 24 mini-muffin sized brownies out of it. And I would like to know what kind of mini-muffin tins are 3/4 full after adding only a teaspoon of batter? I must have abnormally large mini-muffins tins or Dorie has abnormally small ones.

Perhaps I should not be a glutton and want a super-sized portion of the perfect mini-brownie bite, but these were good! And I would have to make a quadruple batch if I wanted to take a respectable amount to a party. I guess that isn't the worst thing that has ever happened to me, but after the portion sizes on some of the other recipes in this book (i.e., Pineapple Dacquoise and the Perfect Party Cake), it was odd that this one was so small.

Anyway, the next time I make these brownies, I am totally hiding them in my car so only I can enjoy them. They were that good!

I am having some blogging issues too. I made that banana cake three times last week (gave two away) and didn't post about it. I haven't made these brownie buttons yet, and one of the reasons is I wasn't sure if my mini muffin pan was the right size. The tins are so small, they look like maybe it is a pan for mini muffin tops. Maybe I will try it after all.

Yours look really cute! And delicious!

Hiding them in your car is a good idea! They look great.

PH,
I really enjoyed this recipe, too, and I definitely should have tripled it, as my son had four fifteen year old boys over at our house when I made these. I think I got one. They even ate the ones with the sprinkles. (Despite being less than manly.)
I loved how simple and fast these were and how their tinier size and white chocolate make them seem more upscale than regular brownies.
