Yes, my very first gluten-free, sugar-free cooking video. I decided it would be fun to bring you into my kitchen so we could make brownies together.
I used my Fudgy Brownie recipe and replaced the applesauce with oil…they really don’t need any oil. I promise. You’ll get a rich, fudgy brownie with a little less fat.
And, the spooky cream cheese cobweb? You could also use this for marbling brownies…it’s the same thing, just piped onto a brownie with a super scary design.
Here’s the recipe:
Cream Cheese Filling
makes enough for 2 (8-inch) round Cobweb Brownies
3 ounces light cream cheese
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon of my Basic Flour Blend
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat together cream cheese and agave until smooth. Add egg yolk, flour, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Put into a piping bag fitted with a round tip (I used a number eight) and pipe desired design.
If you don’t have a piping bag, put the cream cheese into a ziploc bag and cut a hole in the corner a little smaller than the diameter of a pencil.
To make a cobweb pattern:
- Squeeze a glob of cream cheese in the middle of the brownies.
- Make 3 concentric circles around the glob, each one bigger than the previous one.
- Using a butter knife, start at the inner glob and drag it out to the edge to make the first spoke of the web. Wipe your knife. Make the next spoke but this time, start at the outside and drag your knife inward. Repeat until you’ve made spokes all the way around the web.
- Now, pipe lines of cream cheese on the spokes you drew with your knife to complete the web.
