Chocolate Brownie Recipe F.A.Q.

What kind of chocolate should I use for the brownies?

I prefer to use 70% cocoa chocolate, however, if you replace those with 50-55% cocoa or milk chocolate it still will be fine.

How to make gluten-free brownies?

Just exclude the flour, add 1 more egg and 1/4 cup more cocoa powder.

What would you recommend as a serving suggestion?

I prefer cold milk or ice-cream. It's just like black and white classic - never out of date! Another option is to try Bertha Palmers' style - with dried apricots and walnuts.
