Goat cheese brownies

Goat cheese brownies

Yes, goat cheese brownies. Goat cheese is smooth, Sometimes it has a sweet tasty, tangy flavor. The soft texture makes it an excellent replacement for other cream cheese we use in many desserts.

We used goat cheese in two layers of the brownies. Some is mixed into the dark side of the brownies, at the base. Some is used to “create” the fluffy frosting between the dark side and the chocolate glaze. At first, we had no intention of making the white fluffy frosting. The goat cheese gave the best texture to the brownies but the aroma was subtle and hidden underneath the chocolate. So we added the sandwiched layer.

It might scare you, but really, the goat cheese is great in the bars. Goat cheese brownies, delicate and delicious!

Instructions to make Goat cheese brownies

To Make the Brownies:
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 F. Line a baking pan with foil. Spray it or grease it. Choose whatever baking pan you like but be sure to shorten the baking time if you use one larger. I used an 8×8 pan.
  2. Put the butter and the chopped chocolate in a bowl. Mix and melt. Add the sugar and whisk it in.
  3. Add the eggs one by one, whisking. The batter might look grainy. But as you continue it comes together and gets thick. Just whisk for 2 minutes till it gets smooth and shiny. Add the goat cheese and the vanilla.
  4. Sift the flour, cocoa and salt. Stir everything with a spatule, very gently. Scrape the batter into the pan. Smooth it into a layer. Bake the batter at 300 F for 50 minutes. Cool it and then frost it.
To Make the Goat Cheese Frosting:
  1. Mix the butter and goat cheese in a mixing bowl, and combine with a paddle on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat on low speed until the sugar is mixed in. Raise the speed to medium and beat for another minute, until light and fluffy.
  2. Spread the goat cheese frosting on top of the cooled brownies in an even layer. Put in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
To Make the Chocolate Glaze:
  1. Add the chocolate in a bowl. Combine the cream and butter in a saucepan, and place the pan over medium heat. Bring the cream to a simmer. Don’t bring it to a full boil.
  2. Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and let it sit and soften the chocolate for 1 minute. After a minute, whisk the chocolate and cream together until it is smooth and shiny. Pour it over the brownies and smooth it into an even layer. Refrigerate the brownies until the glaze is firm, at least 45 minutes.
  3. To cut the brownies, lift them from the pan using the foil as handles. Use a large sharp knife to cut them into small squares. Wash the knife frequently in warm water between cuts for the cleanest cuts. These brownies are easiest to cut when cold, but for the best taste and texture, let them sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before eating them. If desired, top with a pinch of flaked sea salt just before serving.
