TwD: Honey Nut Brownies
I ran out of honey at about the 3/4 cup mark so I completed that ingredient by using Lyle's Golden Syrup. I noticed that the syrup was a few shades darker than the honey but other than that, I think it was a good substitute.
It took these brownies at least one hour to finish baking. In fact, when I took them out at about the 65 minute mark they were still testing as unfinished. I could tell that the edges were getting quite well done, though, so I finally removed them anyway. They look almost as if they were made in layers. I think this is because the top portion was slightly underdone. I suppose I could have tried putting foil over the edges of the pan, but it just seemed like too much effort.
I don't think I'll give these a go another time, but I will definitely remember to toast my nuts before using them.
You can find the recipe in the book, of course, or at Suzy Homemaker's website. She chose this week's recipe.
