Emergency Brownies

I don’t think COVID lockdown is quite what Nigella Lawson had in mind by "emergency, " but nevertheless, I’m glad to have this small-batch brownie recipe in my arsenal this week.

I’ve always left out the nuts and sometimes sub honey for the syrup in a pinch. I also think her serving sizes are huge; this makes what I would consider four generous brownies.

Tonight’s batch:

My serving suggestion:

(That’s peanut butter, fyi. Not sure the photo conveys that clearly.)


Hey, I think it qualifies as an emergency. And a darn good excuse to make brownies! Those look so chocolaty and delicious! But you can have my share of the peanut butter.

Yes, I need to make these, maybe this weekend. We’d better devise an excersize plan now that I’ve got time to take up baking again. Stuck inside = snacking, snacking = more of me to love, lol.

Mmmm…brownies! Love that you added a dollop of PB to it…I’m sure the addition made it even more delectable :slight_smile:

I don’t know that her serving sizes are off…after all, emergencies do call for bigger brownies :wink:.

Yay comfort food!

Yum!!! They look so tasty.

Small batch cakes are a really good idea. I tend to lose interest in a cake after the first day or two

That looks yummy! (and I totally knew that was peanut butter!)

Thanks, all!

I’ll take it!

This is why I try not to keep the ingredients for these around all the time. One reason I typically use the maple syrup rather than corn syrup is because I can buy only as much as I need in bulk and use it up.

Fair :laughing:. Truth be told, I usually get three servings out of this.

I love the small batch. My SO is not a big sweet person and since my typical take leftover baked goods to work isn’t a solution at the moment, a smaller batch is great!

Yes! If I can’t offload them, I can’t stay out of them.
