Dark Passionfruit Brownies
Having finally located some passionfruit, I went a little overboard and bought quite a few. Then they all needed using up! So I was looking to bake something else after my success with the white chocolate and passionfruit cupcakes. I had brownies on the brain at the time, so brownies it had to be. After hunting around the net, I found this recipe at Scandilicious.
Having made these some time before Easter and having stupidly lost my notes, I can’t quite remember how I made them. I know I didn’t use the extra egg yolk as I can never bear to have just a single egg white hanging around – what do you do with only 1 egg white? I think I might also have used 3 passionfruit!!!
Excited by such fragrant delights, I wasted no time in sinking my teeth into one. Oh no, it had a very strong chocolate hit which was great, but I found the overall experience disappointing. Dark chocolate didn’t seem to go well with passionfruit and rather masked the flavour – or did it? CT loved them at first bite and thought it was a terrific combination. When I tried one again the following day I couldn’t understand why I was so underwhelmed the first time around. It just goes to show, you can’t always trust your own tastebuds. In fact these just got better with each passing day. They had a fudgy consistency and a velvety texture, although I found the seeds slightly annoying. If you love dark chocolate and you love passionfruit, you’ll love these.
