Espresso Cheesecake Brownies
On a slightly happier note, I made Dorie’s Espesso Cheesecake Brownies aka crownies. Apparently Verizon doesn’t recognize the word brownie when texting, but it does put crownie. I didn’t even know that was a word or part of a word. Verizon also doesn’t recognize salsa, jalapeno, fajita, or cupcake.
I really like my swirling. So pretty! I was skeptical on adding the sour cream layer, but some people said it added good contrast, so I did. Nope, not a fan. I ended up scraping off the sour cream when I ate a piece. The rest of the brownie is good, so next time I’ll leave off the top layer. Also, I didn’t have instant espreso powder. I was going to use instant coffee, but at the last minute thought, hey why don’t I just make espresso? I’d be dissolving it in water anyway. If I would’ve thought about it earlier, I would’ve saved some when making my coffee.
Thanks to Melissa of Life In a Peanut Shell for picking these brownies! So good! You can find the recipe on her blog or pages 104-105 of Baking: From My Home To Yours.
