Yep...still sick. And when you're sick, you do whatever you can to make yourself feel better. I have no shame in admitting that I've likely eaten more than my fair share of the recipe below. Oh well...that's life!
So I'm sharing with you one of my most favorite recipes...with a swirl! These brownies are incredibly easy to whip up, and gives you the chocolate fix that you are craving. (admit it, you know you are!) This is one of those homemade recipes that has been kicking around my cookbook for years, that is just "standard" and today I thought I'd share it with you guys.
Its made with apple sauce instead of butter, and egg whites, so it's a healthy (or at least low fat) version than what I've grown up with, but still delicious! At just over 100 calories per brownie, that's my kind of party!
1 cup Applesauce
2 cups sugar
4 egg whites
2 tsp baking powder
8tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp evaporated milk
Blend together applesauce sugar, egg whites salt and baking powder in a bowl. Add in cocoa powder mixing completely, then add the flour. Make sure it's mixed in well!
Pour brownie mixture into a greased 13X9 inch pan and set aside
Combine cream cheese, sugar, egg white, vanilla, lemon juice and evaporated milk in a bowl and whip with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Spoon cream cheese mixture over brownie mix in pan. Using a knife slowly swirl the mixes together to create the marbled affect.
Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until tootpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Let cool completely before cutting and serving.
These went fast at my house...and rightfully so. The brownie part is the family recipe, but I decided to play around with the filling to see what kind of result I'd get. Good thing I did!
This is the last bite of thse little sinful devils that I made short work of just now.
