White Chocolate Brownies

LR-DSC_0306

I was so excited to make this recipe for the Tuesdays with Dorie group. I love brownies, but have never made white chocolate brownies. They sounded delicious and downright fancy. They were accented with almond flour, orange zest, and raspberries. I tested the batter. Amazing. Once baked….not so good. Was it because I didn’t add the meringue topping? I wanted the brownies to last a few days, and the meringue wouldn’t have lasted longer than a day. Or because my white chocolate and butter separated when I melted it in the double broiler? The brownies didn’t rise at all and were kind of greasy. Perhaps I didn’t bake them long enough? I baked then for a little over thirty minutes. The top was golden brown, but the bottoms were gooey. Bummer. They are still edible, but nothing like what I expected.

Instructions

Melt butter and white chocolate over a double broiler. I’ve melted quite a bit of chocolate, and I had no idea just how finicky white chocolate is! Mine separated during this step.

Meanwhile, add some sugar to a bowl and zest an orange.

Beat for a few minutes with a mixer. It smelled like an Orange Julius at this point. Awesome.
