According to Martha, brownies are cookies. I’ll accept that.
The app has 4 different brownie recipes in one, so you’ll see this picture again in the future. Today I chose cream cheese brownies!
I think you can guess which one is the cream cheese brownie.
It was already 80 degrees in my house, so I ran my hands under cold water for a minute to try to avoid really melting it on the cutting board.
Chocolate + butter = heart attack?
Chocolate + butter + sugar = diabetes and heart attack?
That does not look good.
Chocolate + butter + sugar + eggs = high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart attack?
I don’t like all this stirring. Why can’t I use my Kitchenaid mixer?
Um, how am I supposed to whisk this together? It’s stuck!
I had to remove it with my fingers a couple times.
Look! Cream cheese batter!
This is where it gets interesting. Since all you have to do is tap a photo on the right and the recipe changes, I think they forgot to remove a sentence from a different one.
Check that out. Was this a test, Martha? My friend told me you were jealous of all my success that you updated the app to try to sabotage my brownies! I win this time. I’m not dumb enough to transfer the batter to another pan and ruin the marble with an offset spatula.
I checked at 25 mins. Not done. 30 mins. Not done. 35 mins. Not done. 40 mins. Not done. 45 mins. That looks good.
Uh oh, apparently it’s not completely done. Oh well, they’re just really soft brownies!
I got: 16
Start time: 10:40
End time: 1:30 (2 hours, 50 minutes)
Martha’s estimated time: 2 hours (I did let mine cool for extra time while I watched Big Brother.)
What did I learn?
- Watch out for plans of sabotage from Martha. Can’t we be friends? I buy all your stuff and am promoting your recipes and app without compensation.
What do I need to learn?
- How many more minutes would it have been until it was completely done?
- Why was it still under baked after 10 extra minutes of baking?
- Why is whisking so difficult?
- Where were my cats during all of this?
Kristina ate one and told me this:
“I just took a bite and it was pretty underbaked.”
Me: Was it gross?
“No, it was still really tasty!”
Okay, they pass the test. Phew!
The only appropriate way to end this post is with a cheesy photo of me and the cream cheese brownies. Bye!
Oh, and if I fed you one of these, forget everything I said about diabetes and stuff.
