Speaking of brownie, here's a pic of my leftover brownie from d.i.l dinner last night, her choice.

Looks pretty dark, but it's supposed too, they all loved it.

This is the base brownie recipe I used (which is Hershey’s Best Brownies recipe with a few tweaks):

½ cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs (I use large ones)
½ cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa (I use a generous measurement and both light & dark cocoa)
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
Optional: ½ cup chopped walnuts (I didn’t use any in this recipe)

Heat oven to 350 deg. Grease 11” x 7” baking pan (original recipe calls for 9”square pan).
In large bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla (original recipe calls for melting butter but I didn’t like the results). Add eggs and using a spoon, beat well.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to egg mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in nuts (or any add-ins, if used). Spread into prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan (I use the toothpick test, to see if a toothpick stuck in the center comes out dry). Cool completely.

Now for this version, I used cheesecake-like batter on top, only slightly cut into the base brownie batter. (Full Disclosure: This batter was too loose and needed more baking time than the base brownies. Next time, I’ll try for a cheesecake recipe that’s thicker and bakes in the same time as the brownies).

This is what I used for the topping:

3 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons butter, softened
¼ cup sugar
1 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and sugar until creamy. Blend in egg, vanilla and almond extract. Stir in flour. Then I poured it over the brownie batter and cut it into the brownie batter a little bit, before baking @ 350 deg.

If you just use the base brownie recipe, you may want to frost them.

If so, you should dive Right in and whip one of these up, it's so easy a Cave Man could do it.
I promise you that once you bake this way, you will forget the oven exists, they come out that moist and Perfectly cooked. I use mine for just about everything, all thru the year even in 2 ft of snow, I just shovel a 2 ft long path to it on the deck :)

...and NO, I did NOT call you a Cave man lol


Believe me, I certainly have some cave man tendencies, so I wouldn't have been offended even if you did. Yes, I have a knock off egg (Bayou classic) but it doesn't see any action these days. The ceramic insert at the bottom I have used so much it just crumbled away. They were not available as replacement parts for years but just recently showed up on the web site. I need to order one and get back to using it, especially with turkey season around the corner. Best ever to smoke a bird.

This one I can still get: http://www.bayouclassicstore.com/Charco ... 0-583.html

But I also need this one and its out of stock: http://www.bayouclassicstore.com/Charco ... 0-584.html

There is nothing for me to measure so I dont know if one from another type would work. Anyone have any ideas?

I wish I could help you with this, but unfortunately I can't. I went with a double walled porcelain coated Akorn cooker/smoker kamado for various reasons so I'm not sure about ceramic parts.
Hopefully you can find a replacement for yours because I know it puts out some great grub.
Good luck man.

You're welcome, WV & OUP. Good luck with your brownies and any variations you try. I've found this to be a consistend and easier recipe than the ones based on melting unsweetened chocolate (as opposed to the cocoa in ths one).
