Tuesdays With Dorie – Brownie Buttons

by Jessica on August 11, 2009

Definitely not one of my best. This week’s TWD was a disappointment to me. I went in with mixed emotions because I’ve worked with chocolate and brown sugar together before and it didn’t turn out so well…

Brownie Buttons

The few who tried these little cuties liked them, but I’m not sure if they were just being nice! At 16 minutes, they were still bubbling up like brownies tend to do. So, at 22 minutes (even though there was still a little bubbling), I pulled them… thinking that they would be charred if I left them in any longer! Then the mess really started to happen. Half of them didn’t want to come out of the pan and the ones that did, wanted to crumble to pieces on me. So, I gave up. I left them on the counter and photographed them the next day.

Cute, but I think I’ll stick with my tried and true brownie recipe from now on – no hard feelings, Dorie! 🙂

This week’s recipe was chosen by Jayma of Two Scientists Experimenting in the Kitchen and can be found on her blog – don’t forget to check out the other TWD bakers, too!!

I’ve made these a few times with success (all but one time but that was my own fault). I do pull them out of the oven early though. Sorry you didn’t like them!

They still look tasty! I wish I had some brownies downstairs right now. It would make for a great breakfast…haha:)

Bummer! Sorry they were a disappointment. Mine were still bubbling when I took them out of the oven at about 14 minutes and that seemed to work.

Too bad! But it seemed like these were hit or miss with a lot of people! I wasn’t expecting mine to turn out so well (then again, I greased the heck out of my pans and floured them too!)! Oh well – next time! 🙂

I’m sorry these were a disappointment for you. I didn’t really love these either. Oh well, that’s why there are so many brownie recipes out there!

Yikes – sounds like your brownie buttons didn’t want to cooperate! They still look very cute!

They look great! This wasn’t one of my best either, I really had trouble telling when they were done and finally gave up around 15 minutes.

Oh man, I’m sorry these didn’t work out for you! they still look fantastic, though!

Too bad they look tastier then they apparently came out. Better luck next time though. I know you’ll have a winner for us.
