Sour Cream Swirl Brownies

March 27, 2015

20150301 Sour Cream SwirlI made these the other weekend during an ice storm. Some of D’s friends were in town, so we decided to make something yummy to warm up our afternoon.

You will need:

  • 1/2 c unsalted butter
  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 3/4 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 c chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c sour cream
  • 3 T honey
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg

Then you will…

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking pan with tinfoil and lightly grease with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the better.
  3. Whisk in the cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon and baking powder until smooth. Remove from heat.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until light and fluffy.
  5. Whisk the vanilla into the eggs.
  6. Gradually whisk the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. Be sure to do this slowly and whisk continuously to avoid scrambling the eggs.
  7. Mix in the flour until well combined.
  8. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  9. Spread in the prepared baking pan.
  10. In a small bowl, mix the sour cream together with the honey and nutmeg.
  11. Drop the sour cream mixture on top of the brownie batter. Use a knife to swirl the sour cream into the brownie batter.
  12. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until set in the middle.

    I must confess! Now that I am retired…..I make my brownies from a mix! (Shhhh, that’s a bad word!) But I do doctor them up with my own touch and Leo loves them.
