Chocolate strawberry brownies with cashews

Chocolate strawberry brownies with cashews

A few nights ago, I had a dream about brownies. As soon as I woke up I went to a store, bought some chocolate and baked these beautiful cocholate brownies with strawberries and cashews. And they came out perfectly! They are not overly sweet, which I appreciate, but they have a very rich chocolate taste, what basically means that you can’t eat many pieces of these at the same time, but that’s a good thing, right?

Ingredients

  • 180 g/ 6.3 oz dark chocolate (I used chocolate with  60% cocoa solids)
  • 1/3 cup / 70 g butter
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract (or 1 tsp vanilla sugar)
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 tbsp melted honey or maple syrup
  • a handful of strawberries, chopped (or blueberries, raspberries, cherries…)
  • a handful of cashews (or almonds, walnuts, pecans…)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 338 F / 175ºC. Grease a 9 inch round cake pan with butter.
  2. In a big bowl, mix spelt flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt
  3. Melt chocolate and butter over a hot-water bath, stirring occasionally. Let it cool for about 10 minutes. Then, beat in eggs, one at a time. Add honey and vanilla, stir well.
  4. Add the chocolate mixture to dry ingredients and mix well.  Spread batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with chopped strawberries and cashews.
  5. Bake for about 25-30 minutes. Let brownies cool for 15 minutes before cutting. Pour honey over brownies and enjoy! :)
