The recipe: Chocolate Brownie with nuts by Papilles & Pupilles

This is a French version of a brownie with walnuts and it worth your attention! It was one of the first desserts I made while on a diet (!) and I used to eat a small piece each morning! It’s was difficult to restrain myself but I had no choice, if I wanted to eat desserts during weight loss, I had to manage quantities otherwise there was no dessert at all :-( at the time I had not thought to calibrate recipes for one or two servings… that’s why solo food is necessary :-) solo food :-)

In two words:

“…so peaceful and with such a good spirit, that all the mares of the fields of Cordoue did not give him an evil thought”.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Histoire de l'ingénieux seigneur Don Quichotte de la Manche Tweet

This week another recipe that I make from another blog :) and what a blog! The blog of  Anne Lataillade called Papilles & Pupilles ! This blog was a great source of inspiration for me and it helped me to approach French cuisine :) I still look at Anne’s recipes because it’s always very interesting and I have already bought her book (in French) which is really good!

This brownie recipe is very good, and I admit I’ve changed it a bit to avoid having leftovers in butter and chocolate in the fridge and cupboards but also to try to use less fat (if this is possible) :) so I use:

  • 200gr of dark chocolate instead of 180gr
  • 125gr of unsalted butter instead of 140gr
  • Light cream instead of heavy cream

The ingredients are: flour, brown sugar (or rapadura), walnuts (or pecans), eggs, dark chocolate, light cream, unsalted butter. 

For the English version (because the blog and the recipe are in French), I add a short summary regarding the order of adding the ingredients to make the dessert: eggs, sugar, mix of chocolate and cream, flour, crushed walnuts added with a rubber spatula.

Note that I bake the brownie in a silicone rectangular mold and it bakes really well without having to add extra butter for the mold.

I suggest that you use automatic translators for the content of this page because this brownie is really good. I promise I will add soon another post with a selection of Anne’s recipes coming from her blog and then you will be able to have another look.

One word of advice… try this brownie asap :)

Bien à vous,

o-o C'est si bon ! o-o
