Ginger Nutella Brownies


This brownie recipe was guest posted by Cake Duchess over on Gingerbread Bagels.   Both of these ladies create some awesome treats and I so enjoy reading their blogs.

Amazing recipe.....amaaaaazingly good!  Plus it contained Nutella....which is pretty much insta win for me.  ;)  The brownies are rich and moist.  It was really hard not to dive face first in the pan after my first bite.  They had a very interesting texture....not as dense as the usual round of brownies....somewhere between cake and brownie.

I did skip the whipped cream topping....honestly I didn't think they needed anything extra.


Ginger Nutella Brownies

1 cup tub margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
2/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbls non fat plain yogurt
1/4 cup Nutella

Combine the melted butter, sugar, vanilla, and both cocoa powders.  Beat in the eggs.  Add in flour, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Fold in the Nutella and yogurt.

Pour into greased 9x9 pan and bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes, or until done.

  2. Brenda failed to mention the longevity of these brownies. They were still moist and delish after 2 days of sitting on the counter.

  27. The ginger blended in nicely. I knew there was something extra, but it didn't stand and scream it's gingerness. ;)

  28. The Nutella flavor was fairly subtle. I'm thinking for a stronger Nutella taste maybe sneak in an extra 1/4 cup. :)

    Oooo....some crystallized ginger would be a great addition.
