In celebration of my non-fiction story “Grandma Known, Unknown” appearing in the anthology Dear Nana (available now!!) I felt this would pair perfectly.
This issue was a challenge because nearly all the recipes had something in it that I couldn’t eat do to allergies.
This recipe called for Rum, but I didn’t want to buy a bottle to use just a tablespoon, so it was the only thing I didn’t add per the recipe.
I used a glass baking dish, which could have caused the edges to burn while the middle was still slightly uncooked. The recipe called for optional roasted walnuts. I love walnuts so I added probably slightly more than the recipe required.
I didn’t like that the recipe didn’t have the ingredient in order of use. It made for a lot of skipping around that was unnecessary. For those that like German chocolate cake and a strong chocolate flavor this recipe is for you. It was good, but not great on any level for me. I still find my favorite brownies are from a recipe given to me by author/illustrator Wendy Watson some years ago. YUMMY!
