Theresa Shares Her Peanut Butter Brownie Recipe
When it came to finding the perfect peanut butter brownie recipe to post on the site, I turned to Theresa for help. I'm a big fan of
her photography and her blog...the girl really has a way with cameras and the written word. Anyway....I digress...
For me, baking (and cooking in general) is a personal thing. My favorite recipes have come to me through friends and family. Just a quick look in my own personal recipe file and you'll find things like "Grace Ellowitz's Sopa". "Okie Yannai's Chocolate Cake", "Mrs. Morgan's Apple Pie". Recipes for me aren't just a list of ingredients on a piece of paper....they're a collection of shared experiences and a lot of great memories. No holiday dinner at my house would be complete without "Anne Ziegler's Carrot Mold". I've never met Ann, as she was a friend of my grandmother's, but I know her through her cooking and baking. And that's good enough for me!
When I started this site, I really hoped that it would become a place to share recipes...and Theresa is making that happen. She is our first featured baker in our "Guest Bakers" series. We hope that you'll soon join her ranks and contribute your favorite recipes to Easy Cake Recipes!
So with no further adieu, here's Theresa's own Peanut Butter Brownie Recipe with Nutella.
Theresa's Peanut Butter Brownie Recipe with Nutella
- ½ cup butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 4 tbsp (¼ cup) peanut butter (chunky, smooth, whatever you have on hand)
- 4 tbsp (¼ cup) Nutella
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 8×8 inch or 7×11 inch pan with baking parchment paper.
Thanks for visiting our Peanut Butter Brownie Recipe page and just remember:
Measure the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a small bowl and whisk to combine.
Stir the sugar into the melted butter. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
Put the Nutella and peanut butter in a small bowl and microwave until runny (about 30 seconds). Fold into brownie mix. (I chose to just barely mix in the Nutella and peanut butter, which left delicious streaks of peanut butter in the finished brownies that were both a surprise and delight my favorite part of these brownies. However, feel free to completely mix in the Nutella and peanut butter for a more uniform taste.)
Pour batter into pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, until top forms a crust.
Thanks again to Theresa for sharing her photo and Peanut Butter Browie Recipe!
It's a Piece of Cake!
