Flourless Almond Brownies


If you make the macarons I posted about yesterday, you'll find yourself with some leftover almond praline. Not a huge problem, obviously, but I did - and these brownies are what I made with it. You can totally leave it out if you don't happen to have it, but it adds an extra touch of caramel which I found very welcome. (Just use more ground almonds.)

These are great on their own, but absolutely divine with a dollop of whipped cream. And as a bonus, they're gluten free!

Flourless Almond Brownies

225 g butter
225 g dark chocolate
200 g sugar
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
3 eggs
150 g ground almonds
50 g almond praline


Melt butter and chocolate, and add sugar and vanilla. Let it cool slightly, then add the egg, almonds and almond praline. Stir until smooth.

Pour in a buttered cake tin and bake at 175°C for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven, and cool before taking them out of the pan.

By the way Anne, Titus looks like a different child - so grown up!
