Mahasti appeared on WBIR this morning (March 6) and introduced how to make a delicious Strawberry Brownie Sundae. Step-by-step below:
Tomato Head’s Strawberry Brownie Sundae
For the brownie:
½ lb butter
6 oz bittersweet chocolate
2 cups sugar
6 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1.5 cups all purpose flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
Line the bottom of a 8 x 11 baking dish with parchment paper. Grease the sides of the dish with butter.
On a double boiler melt butter and chocolate. Remove from heat and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
Sift together the flour and cocoa powder and set aside.
Beat the eggs and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand held mixer for 4 – 5 minutes on high speed until pale yellow. Reduce speed to low and add vanilla. Gradually add the melted chocolate. Gradually add the flour and mix just until all the flour is incorporated. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in a 325 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is shiny and the brownie is puffed up.
Allow brownie to cool for 1 hour. Remove from pan.
To assemble sundaes:
2 cups sliced strawberries
¼ cup sugar
Hershey’s Chocolate syrup
In a medium bowl toss strawberries with sugar and set aside until the strawberries begin to give off some juice.
Cut 4 pieces out of the brownies you just made. Place each brownie on a plate or in a bowl. Divide the strawberries evenly amongst the brownies. Top with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. Top with whipped cream and nuts.
