Cooking Tips

For extra fudgy brownies, slightly underbake them; they’ll continue to cook as they cool. Adding a pinch of espresso powder enhances the chocolate flavour. Keep the batter manageable once the flour is added to avoid tough brownies.

Serving and Storing Suggestions

Serve Walnut Brownies warm with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delightful dessert experience. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days or in the refrigerator for longer freshness.
