Although today was the start of a four-day weekend, I was feeling a but grumpy. maybe because of the tons of homework that are waiting for me. So I just played a bit with my cat in the sun, when I decided to bake something. That always makes me happy. Yeah sure, also this time. It's brownies with quark. It should be marbled, but somehow the batter became too stiff and it wouldn't mix. So now it's just a thin layer. Anyway, it's delicious. I'll give you the recipe.
What you need:
- 190 gr butter
- 45 gr cacoa
- 220 gr sugar
- 2 eggs, slighly stirred
- 125 gr flour
- 250 ml quark
- 50 gr sugar
- 1 egg
- optional: almondextract, gives it an extra sweet touch
What you do:
- Preheat the over at 180 °C,
- Melt the butter in a pan,
- Take the pan off the gas and spoon the cacoa and sugar trough the melted butter,
- Stir the eggs trough it, add the flour and mix it till it's a smooth batter,
- Spoon the batter in a pastrymould, square or round, whatever you like,
- Stir the quark with the sugar and egg, also add the almond extract if you want to,
- Drip the mix on the batter and try to marble it by making ratational movements,
- Bake the brownies 35 minutes,
- Get them out of the oven, let them cool down and...
- BON APPETIT!
Oh, I want to make a little note to this recipe. The quarklayer was a bit too thin in my opinion. The contrast was not big enough. So you might use a bit more quark. And maybe it's even a better idea to bake the brownies and then let the quark coagulate, like in cheesecake. Just a little tip. I'll try it next time and tell you the result (:
