    Classic gluten-free brownies

    I’m ecstatic about chocolate and on the pages of my blog I often express my admiration to it. Nevertheless, I again and again find words to say how much I love it. Millions of people were seduced by the taste of chocolate and it won my heart as well .

    That’s because the delicacy from cocoa beans to me individually isn’t just a typical sweet or an ingredient, it’s magic! While chocolate tempering is a process of creating something wonderful and vivid.

    There are so many refinements and beauty while working with chocolate, but perhaps the most fascinating thing is a flowing stream of tempered chocolate, which is a very lifelike brook, that in the end becomes a part of masterpiece.

    Oh, how many masterpieces with chocolate can be created! If you want to dive into the world of chocolate, I highly recommend looking through book «Couture Chocolate» by William Curley. Browsing through the book, you will find all key chocolate-making techniques illuminated with step-by-step photography as well as a variety of classic and original recipes. For sure, you will find the author’s recipe of chestnut & sesame brownies as well.

    So, my today’s post is about brownies! No no, I’m not going to describe a recipe of brownie from the mentioned book, but this one is also good and besides it is gluten-free. Please remember that whatever brownies recipe you choose, if you want that taste of the great brownie, you should use only chocolate and cocoa powder of high quality! Well, let’s start!?
