Alaska Blackcurrant Brownies
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 7 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1¾ cups lightly packed brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1½ cups fresh blackcurrants
  • 1 tablespoon crème de cassis
  1. Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Place the chocolate and the butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir until the mixture is melted and smooth.
  2. Place the brown sugar, cocoa powder, flour, and baking powder into a bowl and mix. Mix in the eggs. Add the melted chocolate mixture to the sugar mixture and combine. Pour the batter into a buttered 9-inch by 9-inch square cake pan. Sprinkle the blackcurrants over the top of the batter and drizzle with the crème de cassis. Bake for 50 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting out into 2-inch brownies (we always trim away the crusty edges first).
Makes 12 brownies.
