Earl Grey Brownies - September, 2016.

I love a good cup of tea!  Totally by accident, I discovered that adding my favorite blend (Earl Grey) into a batch of brownies can satisfy multiple tastes.  This is one of my favorite recipes to bake.

The recipe can be found on pages 136 and 137 of Fat Witch Brownies.

  • Ingredients
  • ½ cup boiling water (start with more in your pot) 
  • 5 Earl Grey tea bags 
  • 10 tablespoons (1¼ sticks) unsalted butter 
  • ⅓ cup bittersweet chocolate chips 
  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar 
  • 3 large eggs 
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
  • ¾ cup unbleached all-purpose flour 
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease 9” square baking pan with butter and dust with flour. Tap out the excess.
  • Pour the boiling water over the teabags and let steep for at least 15 minutes.
  • While the tea is steeping, melt the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan (or microwave) over low heat.
  • Stir frequently.  Remove the pan from the heat and let cool. 
  • In  a large mixing bowl, cream the sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add the cooled chocolate mixture and mix until well blended.
  • Squeeze as much tea as possible out of the tea bags and then discard the bags.
  • Add the tea water to the batter and mix until well combined. 
  • Measure the flour and salt and sift directly into to batter. 
  • Mix gently until combined and no trace of the dry ingredients remains. 
  • Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan.  Bake for  25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean or with only crumbs, not batter on it.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let cool for at least 1 hour. 
  • Cut just before serving. 
  • Makes 12-16 pieces 
  • Cover with plastic wrap or foil to stay for 3-5 days at room temperature.
