Happiness as Anarchy #316: Shiraz & Brownie

It feels a little like cheating, since I wrote about brownie yesterday. But oh my goodness, that same brownie today paired with a glass of Heathcote Shiraz is definitely making me happy. It’s a delectable combination: the brownie crunchy on top, sweet and full of dark chocolate flavours, complemented by the acidity of the wine with all its rich, dark cherry, tobacco and earthy tones. Yum!

Happiness as Anarchy #315: Chocolate Brownie

A hankering for chocolate brownie doesn’t just go away by itself. It demands to be sated. After a week of futile resistance, this evening I put my apron on and surrendered. I used the first recipe that came up on taste.com.au for gluten free brownie, and as I only had 40g almond meal, substituted the remaining 70g with rice flour. I also forgot to press go on the timer – l blame the single glass of Shiraz I sipped with dinner – so I left it in until it looked cooked. Maybe next time I’ll try the recipe that the chef at Craig’s Hotel posted on their facebook page this week.
