browniebabe is getting crazier and crazier with each round - look at the long list of delicious little brownies we got this time - AGAIN! thank you all for joining - dont lick the screen too often while you go through all these wonderful recipes and see if you became browniebabe of the month! and if not, dont worry - new round of browniebabe coming very soon!
***helen from tartelette has been busy baking brownies since our last round up and told me they turned out very good. this encouraged her to bake these little beauties: white chocolate brownies. look at this! thanks for joining - and please keep on baking, you do such a great job!
deborah from taste and tell baked herself into a disaster when she baked her basic and speedy brownie. but at the end it all came out well - with these little cuties here:
victoria from oooh!cake made a wonderful thing. she mixed some passionfruit pulp into a brownie and just thinking about it - i can tell this is makes a great combination with the chocolate. also - made me think i should use more of this fun and colourful cake-decoration for my brownies. nice job, thanks for joining!
amrita is le petite boulanger and baked an apricot pistacio brownie for us. what a great combination. her site is very funky - it comes with music. so it's a bakeshop and a disco all in one blog. BTW - i looove the ribbon!
mallow at sweet and savoury made a chewy brownie for us and while she still questioned wheiter it was the perfect one, i think we all agree, that it's darn good looking and the finely chopped pecan nuts make a great topping, too.
kristen from something sweet has been a busy brownie-baker this month. she made TWO (can i be your guest one day? - there seems to be a brownie in your house all the time, how fab is that?) she made a sweet and golden ginger brownie (that's healthy, too!)
the next brownie kirsten from something sweet baked involved a shopping-trip to whole foods, which really is something i would love to do for every cookie and brownie and meal i cook. unfortunately they havent mooved here, but look at these beautiful blackberries she found there and here is what she baked with them. YUM!
canadian baker, too joined us this month with a fudgy black forest brownie. she followed a recipe by baking queen linda collister. really a guarantee for a good brownie!
smitta is back this month with a very handsome little number: the george clooney brownies (girls, dont faint - there is still loads of brownies to look at - so dont!). the brownie is charming and handsome. just like the man himself. try not to lick the screen, girls.
julie from the persnickety palate is a first timer at a foodblog-event. but look what a great job she did with her brownies for bing season. it's a rich and creamy black forest brownie. one that would actually make me walk all the way to the black forest. which would take me about a week or so. good job julie and come back, soon!
amy from nook and pantry managed to make me like green tea in a cake (dont you think it usually smells a bit... let's say... fishy?). her green tea white chocolate brownies dont just look wonderful but tasted heavenly when i baked them the very day i saw the recipe on her blog. thanks amy for baking this - i love green tea, now!
sarina is from trinidad and seems to seduce her readers at trinigourmet with some hot & sweet stuff: stuff like this super fudgy chocolate cake brownie. OH-MY! this looks goooood. thanks sarina, also for suggesting to serve this one with some ice cream. this sounds like music to me!
girls, here is the first boy to join our browniebabe-clan: it's jeremy from the roasting rambler. and he didnt roast but bake wonderful little pick me up brownies. looking at these i have to assume, the pick up worked...
our next entry is from kevin from closet cooking. it's a mayan orange brownie and this recipe got the funniest comments: "I ate dem. Dey were good." is the first. "I don't know who that other guy is, but I also ate them. Though I agree; they were pretty good." was the other one. what more can i say: "ai laik dem, they luk fery guud."
jenn is leftover-queen and look at the yummy stuff she does with her left-overs: caramel fjord brownies. i have to assume jenn's pantry is stuffed with real good food (i wish i EVER had a caramel left-over...). and her tastebuds must have had a day in heaven the day she baked these.
kate from a way to eat is a first-timer at browniebabes and she came up with a very delish little brownie: sweet and tart brownies that bite (nah, i dont think they will bite you. you will be quicker once you bake these...). they got the most beautiful aromas: cinnamon, vanilla and some dried cherries that are spiced up by a pinch of chili. kate - please come back and join us again. you did such a good job with these:
cara from cara's cravings baked a brownie with peanutbutter and delivered a warning with it, too: "you must first of all not be afraid of very rich desserts in order to enjoy this. fudgy, peanutty, fruity, sink-your-teeth-in and wash-it-down-with-a-glass-of-milk goodness!" - still not scared. will take the sugar. thanks for joining!
these chipster topped brownies come from the lovely katie from other's peoples food. she turned to dorie greenspans book baking from my home to yours. really a guarantee for a darn good brownie. thanks kate! and please try all the other brownie-recipes in the book, too and let us know how it went!
cooking is medicine, that's claire's blog and a very true saying. especially if the medicine involves her gold nuggets of gold she baked for us. it's got some butterfinger candy in it. really the gold of candy. look how shiny this one looks!
jessica is baking in texas at small time cooks and it didnt really come as a surprise that she baked some tex mex brownies for us. it's got my secret wonder-weapon in it: pure mexican vanilla - the diamond among the vanillas. and it makes these brownies an absolute delicacy.
laura from eat drink live sends us straight to brownie heaven with her espresso brownie mousse cake. oh look how rich this one is - and it proves that a brownie can be a very elegant little dish. i'd eat a slice of this one anytime.
the next brownie - i have to admit - almost made the winner. i thought it was such a wonderful combination and a great, great recipe that it made me think if this one would be worth the browniebabe-title this month... it would have, wouldnt there be another one... which you will see at the end...it comes from dayna from vegan visitor and it's actually TWO brownies you can bake. one is a vegan fudge brownie:
and here is what you can do with it:
danya - what a great job you did here. this is a queen-brownie and how about you just keep on baking and i bet that apron will be yours very, very soon!
next brownie comes from steph who bakes in sydney australia at a whisk and a spoon. she is a girl with a big heart for flashy things such as fancy shoes and handbags and caviar. girl - welcome to my world. her brownie - of course! - isnt just a brownie. it's a browie sundae and it looks very flashy and fancy, i'd say.
ulrike from küchenlatein tried her hand at strawberry brownies. a cute little number and perfect for the strawberry season that has just kicked off.
our first browniebabe ever - lisa from la mia cucina - joins us again. this time wearing her spanking new browniebabe apron and baking ANOTHER prize-worthy brownie. look at this - lisa, you should open a browniebusiness. these chocholate crunch brownies are good stuff!
cupcake punk jes joins us again with an animal-friendly brownie. i bet it's hard to come up with vegan recipes for brownies. but jes did an amazing job again with her vegan chocholate pear towers. this is exquisite and proves vegan sweets can be fun, too!
another cupcake lover is stephanie from cupcake, my love. she joins our humble little event with a flutternutter brownie and everyone who has a soft spot for elvis (he was my first love - when i was 4 years old) and marshmallow creme, has to check out her post. definitely heartbreakhotel-worthy.
cindy from a few of my favourite things made a blondie for us - which would make her a blondiebabe. look at ther fudgy, amazing little cake with almonds, white and black chocolate.
cookiebaker lynn made an enourmous batch of brownies with her outrageous brownies. lynn - good job girl. one can never have too many brownies. and i'd say this is the perfect recipe if you are hosting a barbeque party so you have enough brownies for all guests. and you might even have left-overs for a midnight snack.
we will be flying on another sugar-high with chris's campfire brownie at melecotte. it includes all the good things - crackers, marshmallows and some fudge. really, what more can a browniebabe ask for?
big mama serves us a mean brownie: it's a recipe from nigella lawson and it's fudgy and moist and has a nice little crust. big mama seems to be a real browniebabe since she writes in her post, "that she can eat half a pan of brownies in only one night". i would, too if i had her mean brownies in my kitchen.
emily at appetitive behaviour came up with a wonderful cheesecake brownie. and if this wasnt enough, she also put oreos in it. so that's a cookie and a cheesecake in a brownie and all in all just a wonderful combination.
cookbookqueen from scottland joins us with her cute little fudge button brownies. another recipe from baking queen dorie greenspan and a great idea to bake round brownies with a glaze for a change.
lisa from lisa's kitchen made a wonderful batch of peantubutter brownies. these brownies are soft and chewy and literally melt in your mouth - she writes. worth a try!
couture cupcakes joins us again with some delicous dark apricot dream brownies. she told us she was working on a white chocolate version of this and i cant wait to see us. minko, send us a pic!
oh and here comes another one from her. it's a fancy champagne brownie. after all, it's about couture darlings, couture, she writes. i couldnt agree more looking at this one:
now get ready for coco&me. she is in the browniebusiness and sells her brownies in london. and now she even shares her recipe for some killer-brownies with us. they got all the good stuff in it. cocoa, pistacio nuts, hazelnuts, pecans,.... with the recipe (which i will try asap!) comes a little story about brownies and how they were invented. head over to her blog to find out more.
arfi from new zealand joins us with a wonderful seasonal brownie. it's a soulfood brownie thats very rich and chocolatey and it's even got chocolate running out of it, once you slice it. thanks arfi, your brownie looks to die for. here is a pic how they look before they went into the oven. fiels of chocolate and raspberries. YUM!
michelle at foodie... cookie came up with a wonderful brownie: it's a chocolate mint brownie and i bet it's very refreshing and sweet at the same time.
freya at zombiesnack did a delicious pecan and date blondies. but the other name of this brownie is "third time lucky blondies". she shares her baking experience with baking books, written by fancy chefs and - sometimes - bland brownies. - if you ignore the sugar and butter, this one might even count as a healthy blondie. dates are healthy. pecans, too (and the chocolate is good for the soul...).
marye from apron strinkgs & simmering things is baking in texas and made a fabulous chiplote dark chocolate brownie. she did something i want to do more often in the future. she baked the brownies in a round pan, which makes it look like a decent tarte.
these honey nut brownies are dutch and come from ardens blog uit de keuken van arden. i have to love this brownie. i love holland sooo much (HEMA and BLOND is not the only reason but plays a big role in my love for the country) and honey in a brownie is just divine.
brilynn from jumbo empanandas came up with the funniest name for a brownie: rhubarb urfa biber brownies. check out her blog to find out what urfa biber is - i bet it's delicious. and the brownie with the sweet but slightly sour aroma of rhubarb perfect for a hot summer day.
here is a brownie by one of my favourite bloggers in the whole wide word: jenjen from milk and cookies made some simple but divine brownies for us who look wonderful moist and fudgey. them aussies just know how to make things look gorgeous in pictures... i think it's adorable.
nandita from saffron trail came up with "easily the easiest brownies to make". they are simple but with the addition of walnuts and orange definitely special. nandita is new to brownie baking but by the looks of it, she might turn into a real browniebabe very, very soon!
danielle from habeas brulee turned her brownie into the fanciest thing EVER. she made amaretto brownies with saffron creme anglaise and bee pollen spice mix. phew - what a name. and what a brownie. thanks for baking!
maye from totally more-ish joined us also this month. she made a korova brownie, that includes these world pece brownies. unfortunately she couldnt send us a picture of the brownie (her camera hated her that day. so why dont we post the picture of these adorable cookies by milk and cookies. your imagination will do the rest.
the next brownie is something for vegans and hyper-allergenic people. grignote et barbotine published this brownie that's made with tofu instead of eggs - check out her french blog.
from healthy to naughty. the peanut butter connoisseur baked a mean peanut butter cinnamon brownie. what a combination - whoof! i love how creamy and soft and wonderful the topping looks. worth a sweet sin, isnt it?
for this months winner, i'd like to quote the famous dorie greenspan. here is what she writes about our winner brownie...erm it's actually a blondie:
The cake layer is slender, delightfully dense and both sweet and tart; the meringue is soft and golden. You can tell them brownies, but serve them with a swirl of raspberry coulis and they'll be worthy of a black-tie gala.
meeta from what's for lunch honey is our winner this month and there are several reasons why she got the title this month.
1. she made a wonderful blondie.
2. the recipe included meringue and it made me wonder why i didnt think about including meringue into a brownie before? it's simply divine.
3. she topped it all with a delicious raspberry coulis which is such a wonderful sweet and refreshing dessert sauce that goes wonderful with chocolate.
i hope you all agree and love, love, love this little blond cake as much as i do. meeta - well done and well deserved. this one is not only worth a black-tie gala but also worth the prize of browniebabe of the month.
please let me know if one of the links to your posts, dont work or if you cant find your entry for this months browniebabe, i will update it asap! thanks to all of you for being such wonderful brownie-bakers once again and please come and join the fun again next month when we will look for a brandnew brownie that will win the title. - more info right here very soon!
thank you, thank you for joining once again and lotsa love!
